Tag Archives: Pfizer CEO’s annual compensation

I don’t have to tell you how I feel about this…

Now this is compensation. Not mine, his.

But I will. Ludicrous and, frankly, almost criminal. First of all, no one needs an annual salary of $27.9 million. What on earth would you even spend that much money on? Purchase your own country?

Secondly, I take this over the top salary personally. I can’t help but feel that my individual contribution (over seven years of my life spent as an early participant in two phase one clinical trials for Pfizer) helped feather this fellow’s fine nest. 

It is as if I am the serf and this is my lord. Clinical trials as a feudal system? Not so far off the mark, yet oddly out of place and time in this modern day democracy in which we now (co)exist. 

However, I have an idea. Ian C. Read could decide to share some of that massive salary, just as I have so generously shared the fruits of my labor (not to mention a whole lot of plasma). 

And he could start by taking care of my parking fees.
