The company has paid over $1.7 million for non-executive chairman Nelson Peltz’s personal security over the past three years — $657,514 for just 2012. Seventy-year-old Peltz has been on the Wendy’s board since 1993, and with 4.1 percent of the company, he’s the largest shareholder. We’re no financial experts, but we’re pretty sure that means he can ask for whatever the hell he wants. Hey, Fast Food Forward strikers: Put this news on a poster! [Earlier, NYP]
