Ford’s F-series was, as usual, the bestselling vehicle in the U.S. in 2013. If Alan Mulally had received his compensation package in F-150s, it would have required a couple of haulers a week to drop off all 885 at his doorstep. Here are our CEOs’ pay expressed in number of their bestselling vehicles.
Most entry-level hourly employees at automobile-manufacturing facilities in the United States make about $16 per hour, not including benefits. Assuming those workers have a basic year of fifty 40-hour weeks, Mulally made as much as 725 factory workers.
The median household income in the U.S. is $43,585, according to the latest data from Gallup. In 2013, TRW’s CEO John Plant made that much in about 21 hours. Over the course of the year, he made 409 times the median American household income.
