American CEOs make 351 times more than workers. In 1965 it was 15 to one | Indigo Olivier | The Guardian

Today in the US, the CEO-to-worker pay gap stands at a staggering 351 to one, an unacceptable increase from 15 to one in 1965. In other words, the average CEO makes nearly nine times what the average person will earn over a lifetime in just one year.

    Thanks, Bob, for this information. Since CEOs basically determine what a company should do, then their pay packet is largely self-made and I would call that conflict of interest, and criminal theft from the workers and society as a whole. Their tax burden is another matter and their Lib/Con government associates have certainly made it easy for the bosses to take home (and invest in tax havens) almost everything they’re paid. Detestable.

    The struggle continues. Cheers, Harry
