Merkel Salary Should Be Raised to 600,000 Euros, DIHK Tells FAZ

The German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, or DIHK, called for Chancellor Angela Merkel’s pay to be raised to 500,000 euros ($660,000) to 600,000 euros, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported in a preview of a story that will run tomorrow, citing DIHK president Hans Heinrich Driftmann.

The chief executive officer of a company with 1,000 employees often gets a salary of 500,000 euros or more a year and someone with the responsibility of the chancellor should not get less, the newspaper cited Driftmann as saying.
