3100 Euros per day for former Volkswagen CEO Winterkorn
Winterkorn stepped down as chief executive at the car corporation in September 2015. Just previously it became known that Volkswagen secret software had manipulated testing so that their cars seemed to be much more environmentally friendly than they actually were. Worldwide eleven million Volkswagens ride with fraudulent software.
Winterkorn is one of the main suspects in the fraudulent software case. He is suspected of having informed the financial world too late about the diesel scandal and that he thus withheld important information from investors.
Winterkorn has worked for Volkswagen for 35 years and therefore, according to Bild, he is entitled to 70 percent of his final basic salary. That was 1.6 million per year. Ultimately, it means that he will receive more than 93,000 euros per month during retirement.
On his final departure the former CEO is also said to have have received a bonus of 1.7 million euros. That would be a deferred payment for his performance in 2015. Last summer he already received 4.1 million in variable remuneration, says Bild.
Volkswagen factory employees receive about 700 euros per month during their retirement, in addition to German government pensions intended for all citizens.
