Canadian Association of Labour Media (CALM) reports that Magna chief Frank Stronach must be older than he looks. Auto parts magnate Frank Stronach has tried to justify his $43.2 million salary (the highest in the country) by saying he’s smart, and he’s worth it. According to the CASLM he recently made the following claim: “If I added up all the hours I’ve spent working over the past 40 years, I probably haven’t made much more than the minimum wage.” Is this possible? Or is it just hyperbole? Let’s do the math. At the highest minimum wage in Canada ($7 an hour, in British Columbia), it would take Stronach–even if he could work 24 hours a day, every day of the year — 688 years to earn $43.2 million! He doesn’t look that old. To view it another way, if the Magna International CEO had worked every hour of every day for the last 40 years, his $43-million-plus salary would amount to about $123.20 an hour.
