Many Thanks to David Ruccio.
A new study by Payscale, a business research group, illustrates how much many CEOs are being paid compared to the median workers‘ salaries in their companies.*
CVS/Caremark tops the list, with CEO Larry Merlo taking home more than $12 million while the median employee salary is $28,700—a ratio of 422 to 1. Goodyear comes in second, with a ratio of 323 to 1, and the Walt Disney Company stands at 283 to 1.
*The interactive chart is here. PayScale only looked at the top 100 publicly traded companies by revenue. So, many companies notorious for CEO-to-worker pay disparities aren’t included.
