Re: Not going to receive his bonus

"How would you feel if low income workers who were fired for incompetence or misconduct had to give back several years of historic pay?"

They're not going to be the ones making company policy or overseeing company policy being carried out. The reason CxOs are paid a lot of money is that they carry responsibility. If they fail to discharge that properly that over a long period why shouldn't some of that money be clawed back?
