France Caps Pay at State Companies at $560,000

Wednesday, 13 June 2012 08:51 AM

France's finance minister has unveiled a plan to cap the pay of top executives at state-owned companies at 450,000 euros ($562,140).

The pay cap was part of President Francois Hollande's campaign pledge to reign in corporate excesses, which he blames in part for the financial crisis.

The move affects only a fraction of French executives, but includes such well-known state-run companies as the SNCF railways, La Poste postal service, and EDF electric company.

Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said at a press conference Wednesday the cap will be instituted across all state-owned companies by the end of the year.
