Investors should have a say in executive salaries, according to 88 percent of callers to SUNDIAL, or 228 of 257 callers. Twenty-nine callers (11 percent) disagree.
Similarly, nearly 90 percent of the callers (227 of 253) say companies should disclose executive compensation, while 26 callers (10 percent) oppose the notion.
A federal regulatory ruling giving shareholders of publicly held companies a say in executive compensation probably will make all corporate boards rethink the question of pay for top officers, in the opinion of 171 of 251 callers (68 percent). The regulation will not have that effect, say 80 callers (31 percent).
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
