Company Posts $500 Million Loss; Rewards CEO With 3,400 Times Pay Of Average Employee

How do you punish a CEO when his company loses over half a billion dollars? Well, if you’re Mattel you pay him an obscene amount.

USA Today reports:

“[Mattel, Inc. CEO] Ynon Kreiz took the top job at the California-based toy manufacturing company in June 2017 – and Mattel’s financial performance has been lackluster since. The company’s revenue has declined each year since at least 2016, which was the last time the company’s had a profitable year. Over the course of Kreiz’s tenure, the company’s share price has dipped by over a third.”

His income? $18.7 million, which is 3,400 times the average Mattel employee pay.

78% of the company’s workers are located outside the US and earn an average salary of $5,489.

Despite the lavish CEO pay and the poverty wages of workers, the company managed to lose $531 million last year.
