Someone has to look after the boss and take notes. Real-life versions of Springfield Nuclear Power's owner Monty Burn's assistant, Waylon Smithers, make around $62,074 a year.
Time it would take Waylon Smithers' voice to earn an executive assistant's annual salary: 1 hour, 33 minutes.
OWNER OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
It may be hard work being an energy mogul, but it sure does pay well. Exelon Corporation (EXC), the parent company of Illinois-based Exelon Nuclear – the nation’s largest nuclear company – brings in annual revenue that exceeds $15 billion dollars. Meanwhile, total 2007 compensation for John W. Rowe, the CEO, topped out at $19,491,556!
Time it would take Monty Burns' voice to make a power plant chief's annual take: 2 years, 87 hours and 17 minutes!
That’s right, not even Harry Shearer’s new salary can top the earning power of the atom: Even in reality, Mr. Burns (and his ilk) still has power.
