7 On Your Side
Consumer confidence up due to better hiring outlook
U.S. consumer confidence is up. It is now at its highest level in four and a half years. Why? A better hiring outlook and lower gas prices.
CEO's of America's top companies are feeling pretty good too.
The head of a typical public company made $9.6 million in 2011, up more than six percent from the previous year. The figure is also the highest since AP began tracking executive compensation in 2006.
