GM CEO Who Drove Them To Bankruptcy Gets $10 Million Retirement

Oh, golden parachute!

Former General Motors Corp. Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner will retire Aug. 1 with a pension and benefit package the automaker valued at more than $10 million.

Wagoner, 56, who was ousted by the Obama administration on March 30, will get $1.64 million in benefits annually for each of the next five years, plus an annual pension of $74,030 for the rest of his life, according to company documents filed Tuesday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Being from corporate America means never having to say you're sorry... even when you fail.
