Switzerland -No to bonuses -March 4, 2013

The vote to wholeheartedly back proposals to impose tough limits on executive pay and ban huge pay-outs to new and departing managers has been both praised and damned in Europe. The initiative proposed by Thomas Minder, the head of a herbal toothpaste company, was backed by all 26 cantons in the country. The plan gives shareholders a veto on compensation as well as banning big so-called ‘fat cat’ managers’ pay-outs.
