Underpaid!!! Go ask some Airmen, or Private, or Seamen who are defending our country about being underpaid. Go ask some federal judges about being underpaid, how about magistrate judges. Mr. Lutz is ok in my book, but this statement may come back to bite him. When a company looses money for years in a row, yeah, the execs aren't going to be rewarded with "Industry Standard" salaries and options, he HAS to know that. Their executive pay will come up to standard after the American people have been paid back, and the company still turns a profit by selling safe, economical cars to us, the consumers, at reasonable prices. This last year has been pretty good, but it certainly doesn't equal any right to start the "We're Poor" chant from any exec.
