Ballmer 'Underpaid' in 2007

Steve Ballmer pulled in about $1.3 million in fiscal 2007, a pittance according to Microsoft.

And, really, it doesn't seem like that much money for a guy who heads a company that made more than $50 billion in the same fiscal year. Our favorite part of this story, though, comes from the second linked article (the one from Australian IT):

"Unlike some companies that spend millions on executive perks, Microsoft gave Ballmer a modest $US6750 to his retirement plan and about $US3000 worth of life insurance and athletic club memberships."

Athletic club memberships. Yeah. We're just going to let that one sit out there.
