Intel shares close higher on Tuesday, company makes broad cuts to employee and executive pay

Intel Corp (INTC) said earlier this week it had reduced pay for employees and executives. The cuts will be within the range of 5% for mid-level employees to 25% for the company’s Chief Executive Officer Pat Gelsinger.

Pay for vice president level employees will be cut by 10% and top executives other than the CEO will see 15% reductions.

On the other hand, pay for Intel’s hourly staff will not be reduced.
