Hey, if the stockholders are so upset about what he makes they can remove him. I see nothing wrong with it. It's a private company, a private decision. It's in their hands. If the company starts going down the crapper I think the Board will feel the heat and Iger will see the light.
Compare this $27 million to the what Eisner made at the end of his career and it makes more sense. And considering the job Iger is doing (compared to Eisner in those days), it may well be worth that much to keep him around.
I have no beef with executive pay as long as said executives aren't guilty of bilking their shareholders. I think Iger has earned his money.
Have you seen how the other entertainment studios' stock is performing? Can we see how much their CEOs made before we start crying about how horrible Iger has been to Disney?
