Proposed Ballot Measure Would Cap Pay Of Hospital Executives

Should hospital executives in California earn more than the president of the United States?

SEIU-United Health Care Workers West wants California voters to decide. The union is sponsoring a proposed ballot initiative that would cap the compensation packages of hospital executives at $450,000 a year.

Union officials say the salaries of many hospital executives are out of control. Officials argue there’s no reason why some administrators should make millions of dollars a year.
