Qwest Corporate Jet serves as school bus

The new Chairman and CEO of Qwest Communications has had a clause written into his new contract that allows his wife and step-daughter to use the company jet to go to school. According to the Guardian, Edward Mueller and family will move to Denver but his step daughter will still attend school 800 miles away in California.

Mr Mueller, who was appointed last month, is moving from his west coast home to Qwest’s base in Denver. The clause allows his stepdaughter to avoid changing schools. It is on top of a basic salary of $1.2m (£593,000), a possible $2.4m bonus and stock awards of up to $15m.

Apart from said step-daughter’s carbon obesity, surely the daily commute is an expense that shareholders could do without… if they were asked.
