J.C. Penney CEO Takes Major Pay Cut

By

J.C. Penney has been desperately attempting to change its image, but are their efforts going unnoticed? Apparently, J.C. Penney’s CEO, Ron Johnson, just took a pay cut of almost 97 percent, to $1.9 million.

In addition to this major pay cut, not a single top executive received a cash bonus for the year. Johnson has been given at least another couple of quarters to turn around the company. He was only hired a little over a year ago.

So what does this mean? Is J.C. Penney’s leadership team at fault for the dismal sales of the once lucrative department store? Or is it something else?
