GM's Rick Wagoner to Recieve $20M Retirement Package

This past weekend the Obama administration asked GM’s CEO Rick Wagoner to step down as part of its restructuring plan.

The Treasury Department has banned GM from issuing any severance packages to its executives, but that doesn’t mean that Wagoner can’t receive millions in retirement benefits. Wagoner has worked for GM for nearly 32 years and according to documents Wagoner could receive a $20.2 million pension package.
