In the light of the hike in the price of a First Class stamp to 60p, you might be wondering about the pay packet awarded to Royal Mail's Canadian chief executive, Moya Greene.
Last year she took home £637,000.
Her basic was £498,000 but she arrived during the year so she only received £350,000.
Then there was a performance bonus of £142,000.
And £145,000 for extras, including the cost of moving to the UK.
Moya Greene used to run Canada Post and she had a hand in privatising Canada's railways and deregulating the airline business.
