In 2022 the median pay for a worker at this company was US$13,884. The CEO was paid 1,478 times this amount. Exorbitant CEO pay is a major contributor to rising inequality.

The economy would suffer no harm if CEOs were paid less (or taxed more). In contrast, the CEO-to-typical-worker compensation ratio was 20-to-1 in 1965 and 58-to-1 in 1989.
