The Average CEO-Worker Pay Ratio is 331-to-1. These CEOs Received Over 700 Times Their Workers’ Salaries.

By Sahid Fawaz

The AFL-CIO’s Executive Paywatch reports that the average S&P 500 CEO receives compensation that is 331 times that of company employees.

If that isn’t obscene enough – remember, the CEO-worker pay ratio before the Reagan era was less than 30-to-1 – here are three CEOs that raked in over 700 times that of their workers. Notice that they are all in retail.

 

Douglas McMillon, Walmart

McMillon’s total compensation: $19,404,042 

Average Walmart worker salary: $24,000

CEO-worker pay ratio: 789-to-1

 

Carol Meyrowitz, TJX Companies (owns TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods)

Meyrowitz’s total compensation: $17,962,000

Average TJX worker salary: $22,0000

CEO-worker pay ratio: 816-to-1

 

Larry Merlo, CVS

Merlo total compensation: $22,855,374

Average CVS worker salary: $27,900

CEO-worker pay ratio: 819-to-1
