US executives at bailed-out firms have pay cut
The Treasury Department says nearly 70 executives at American International Group Inc., Ally Financial Inc. and General Motors Co. had their annual compensation reduced by 10 percent. The CEOs of each company had their pay frozen at 2011 levels.
All three companies have yet to repay what they received from the $700 billion bailout and therefore are subject to pay cuts.
AIG still owes taxpayers around $50 billion. General Motors owes about $25 billion. Ally Financial about $12 billion.
