A special report on America's lowest-paid CEOs.

Executive compensation remains a hot topic, as the debate rages over whether Wall Street CEOs deserve their gargantuan pay packages.

Just this week, "Pay Czar" Kenneth Feinberg made headlines by coming down hard on AIG (AIG) executives. Meanwhile, public outrage continues to be directed at the top brass of companies like Bank of America (BAC) and Goldman Sachs (GS).

But there's one type of executive whose compensation is so low as to be nearly non-existent.


According to one study from, full-time moms should be earning over $130,000 annually for their work. The study claims that the average housewife is a part daycare worker, housekeeper, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive and psychologist.

When you consider how the major financials have been performing over the past couple years, we can safely say that most moms do a better job running things than your everyday Ken Lewis or Vikram Pandit.

Join Hoofy and Boo as they take a look at the world's lowest paid "executives."
