Just noticed this article on yahoo: McDonald's And Starbucks' CEOs Make More Than $9,200 An Hour. The article includes a top ten list of the companies whose CEO's make the most compared to their workers. At the top if McDonald's, whose CEO makes 1,196 times per hour of their average worker. Starbucks, Dollar General, The Gap, TJ Maxx, Target, Walmart, CVS Caremark (which also operates London Drugs), Best Buy and AT&T Wireless round out the top ten.
This report was done by the personal finance website NerdWallet. They reviewed 100 companies to see which had the biggest per hour pay ration difference between CEOs and their workers. It's interesting to have this list as workers for fast food companies have been demonstrating to receive a living wage. Hopefully this list will make it a bit harder for companies to use the "we just can't afford to" line.
So what are your thoughts on this list? Does it make you wish to stop frequenting any of these businesses? Or do you feel "this is just the way it is...suck it up, everybody!". Or any other thoughts?
