In 2019 the median pay for a worker at this company was US$160,222. The CEO was paid 34 times this amount. Exorbitant CEO pay is a major contributor to rising inequality. CEOs are getting more because of their power to set pay, not because they are increasing productivity or possess specific, high-demand skills. 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. A lower pay ratio could indicate a company is dedicated to creating high-wage jobs and investing in their employees for the company's long-term health.
