The Rich Get Richer Etc.

Abby Zimet

Despite most of your hard times, CEOs at the country's 200 biggest companies earned 20% more last year than their equally undeserving year before. From Mother Jones, the top ten most absurdly overpaid executives. At the top: Viacom's Philippe Dauman, whose 149% raise gave him $84.5 million. Read it and rage; then, hopefully, act.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
