Setting The Standard - Focus On Ford

According to Yahoo news, Ford CEO Alan Mulally will work for $1 per year if the company has to resort to a government loan...aka a bailout.
After grilling the CEOs at hearings last month, Congressional leaders demanded plans from the automakers by Tuesday to show that they will survive if they get federal funds. The plan Ford submitted said the company will cancel all management employees' 2009 bonuses and will not pay any merit increases for its North American salaried employees next year.
The company also said it will sell its five corporate aircraft. The CEOs of all three Detroit automakers were harshly criticized during last month's hearings for flying to Washington in separate corporate jets.
This is a good start and I expect the CEOs of every other firm that has taken a bailout package to do the same.
