The WSJ said a few weeks back that some Daimler shareholders were making nasty noises about the obscene compensation of Chrysler executives. Five times bigger than Daimler's on average, if I remember correctly. The main reason was that Daimler execs get very few stock options.

BTW, under German law, IG Metall, the German union, will get 9 of 20 seats on the board of the combined company, UAW 1 (the Germans are working to change the law and increase UAW's representation). Are the Yanks at Chrysler about to get a serious pay cut? Why did they agree to have the company incorporated under German law?
