scherzo♫ (pjreads) | 35 comments "This past spring the Swiss voted in favour of tough curbs on executive pay, banning golden hellos and golden parachutes. A referendum later this month proposes to ban Swiss-based businesses from paying anyone a salary more than 12 times that of the lowest paid staff. And a vote scheduled for 2014 proposes a basic minimum income."
