On Wall Street, you get paid no matter what. JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is getting a raise after his firm paid $20 billion in fines to the U.S. government last year. In 2013, the board cut Dimon's pay in half for the "London Whale" trading fiasco. A minority of directors wanted to keep Dimon's salary flat this year, pointing to the penalties. The decision wasn't easy: some directors reportedly left the conference room to pace the floor.
