Initiator of the "Rip-off Initiative" Thomas Minder reacts as he follows the results of a vote at a hotel in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, Sunday, March 3, 2013. The "Rip-off Initiative" is designed to prevent bosses from receiving huge bonuses even when their companies do badly. Exit polls show Swiss voters have approved a measure to boost shareholders' say on executive pay. If Sunday's exit polls prove correct, parliament will have to draft a law giving shareholders the right to hold a binding vote on all compensation for company executives and directors. The law will also ban signing and leaving bonuses for senior managers and push greater corporate transparency. (AP Photo/Keystone, Walter Bieri)
