Mulally was one of the highest paid chief executives in the United States in 2010.

That angered some Ford factory workers. United Auto Workers president Bob King has called his compensation level “morally wrong.’’ Mulally defended his pay in an interview last fall with the Associated Press, saying most of it is tied to the performance of the company’s shares.
