How much do you think the average American would have to work, to make what a CEO makes of a prominent company in one year ? The answer is 275 years! That's just crazy!!!
Equilar took a look at 160 prominent American companies and determined that their average worker would have to work for 275 years to make what the average CEO makes in one year.
“It’s grotesque how unequal this has become,” said a business historian at Cornell University. “For CEOs, it’s like they are winning the lottery year after year. For a lot of Americans, they don’t have any savings. When they lose their job, they lose everything.”
