That is his total compensation, as in total, as in it doesn't exclude bonuses:<quoted text>
Not to the degree that he needs to makemillions, plus more in bonuses even when his company isn't doing well financially. THe U.S. has the biggest wage gap in the world. We have the biggest wage gap between nurses and doctors as well.
Actually the Chairman of the Board makes way more than the CEO.
I completely agree with you and the Ferret, that these folks are grossly over-compensated.
As my example points out, tho, even if you paid them less and redistributed their income amongst all the other workers, since there is such a large pool of workers, you are only talking a few pennies an hour more in wages for these people. Given this, what's the point in whining about it. It doesn't make folks lives better.
Also, the average McDonalds franchise makes around 150k in profit after taxes and all expenses:
I don't think that is a ridiculous sum given the cost of a franchise and the responsibility of being an owner.
