CEO Pay up 298% Average Worker? 4.3%

changeinceopaygraph

Here is one of those charts that pretty much says it all. While CEO pay rose 298.2% from 1995 to 2005, and corporate profits by 106.7%, the average worker pay has only risen by 4.3%. Contrary to what corporate apologists say, there doesn’t seem to be any direct relationship between CEO pay and profit performance, however, CEO pay does track nearly parallel with the S&P 500. Unfortunately, profits or losses, stocks up or down, the average worker’s pay pretty much “flatlines” for the decade.
