Intel slashes wages, bonuses after disastrous quarterly results

The chipmaker said it will slash base pay for employees above its midlevel ranks by at least 5% effective March 1, according to employees who heard the company’s announcement. Vice presidents will take a 10% cut, more senior executives will receive 15% less, and CEO Pat Gelsinger will get a 25% reduction in his base pay.
