    NC - Ex-energy boss could get $44 million 'golden parachute' for 20 minutes of work

    The ultimate golden parachute - Energy company boss to
    get $44m exit package for TWENTY minutes in his post
    (Daily Mail)
    ---
    The former boss of the largest electricity company in the US is to get a $44m payoff - for just 20 minutes work.

    Bill Johnson was in charge of the newly merged Prospect Energy and Duke Energy for less than an hour before he was ousted.

    According to Securities filings he could walk away with the colossal farewell package in what a former colleague has called ‘the most blatant example of corporate deceit’ he had ever seen.

    Utilities regulators are now considering investigating his abrupt resignation amid protests from shareholders.

    Why not? It worked out pretty well for Dick Cheney when he did it. Different rules for different fools, I guess.....

    If Marx didn't predict this in Das Kapital, it was because even he would have found it hard to believe.
