how could this be?
I thought these were the "job makers"?
.
The median pay for U.S. workers was about $39,300 last year. That was up 1 percent from the year before, not enough to keep pace with inflation.
but.....
The head of a typical public company made $9.6 million in 2011, according to an analysis by The Associated Press using data from Equilar, an executive pay research firm.
That was up more than 6 percent from the previous year, and is the second year in a row of increases.
.
even just 1million of an executive bonus would be enough to hire 50 workers at 40k+benefits.
.
.
SAVE THE 1%!!
