The three big CEOS: Northrop Grumman's Wes Bush, who made $22.84 million last year; Lockheed Martin's Robert Stevens ($21.89 million) and Boeing's James McNerney ($19.4 million.) From Brave New Foundation and warcosts.com. For your local Occupy group, so they know who they're taking the economy back from.

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 Won't Exist.
