The CEO of WE Energies makes $11,346,447 per year. That's not including his stock options and awards.
He got a $1.3 million dollar raise from what he was making last year.
Does this nauseate anyone, or am I alone in my disgust for these greedy whores?
How many of you shiver when the utility bill from WE Energies lands in your mailbox; feeling sick as you open it, wondering how simple things like light and heat can cost you so much money. Truth is, they don't. WE Energies is a monopoly, in bed with the Public Service Commission, and they can gouge to their heart's delight without any repercussions.
I wish I had an answer to this kind of manipulation from corporations, but I don't. I do have a few thoughts about WE Energies though.
1. They suck. Blood. Your blood.
2. They break the law all the time. See current articles about how they broke the law with their retaining ponds at their Oak Creek power plant. They'll get fined, but hey, when you can pay your CEO millions, and you can give him a raise of a million over last year's salary, what the HELL do they care? They're rolling in cash. Yours. While you struggle to put hot dogs on the dinner table.
3. They're the only game in town, so you really have no choice but to let them unfairly charge you for energy use.
I look forward to the day when we won't need corporations like this around anymore. I look forward to the day when WE Energies is left out in the cold, completely in the dark.
Better days are coming. For us little folk. I think the corporate greed bubble is about to burst and what a happy day it will be for all of us.
