MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Supervalu Inc.’s CEO Craig Herkert earned compensation of nearly $3 million in the grocer’s most recent fiscal year. That’s down from the $10.8 million in the prior year.

Supervalu operates the Albertsons, Jewel-Osco and Save-A-Lot chains.

His salary and option award held steady. And he received no performance bonus or stock awards for the year.

His perks also dropped. He still got more than $100,000 in other pay but received nearly $600,000 to move to Minnesota to join the company last year.

The AP’s calculation counts salary, bonuses, perks and stock and options awarded to the executive during the year.

    Poor, baby. Does he feel the pain of the worker bees being outsourced, downsized, and pay frozen? Can he possibly maintain his standard of living on such a paltry salary?

  2. Rhonda Cox says:

    The article indicates that Herkert joined SV last year, I believe it was 2 or 3 years ago.

  3. Ronald Raygun says:

    Oh how horrible. A dirty filthy republican losing something as sacred as money.

  4. L. Sprewell says:

    Can’t ask him to pay more in personal income taxes. How will he feed his family?

  5. Underpaid Employee says:

    F this guy, I work at Supervalu for minimum wage, no employees get full time, everyone there hates their job. We deserve more, he deserves less. I bust my a** for that store.
