Warren Buffet Makes Less Than Twice the Salary of Average Berkshire Employee

By Sahid Fawaz

With some CEOs making over 800 times the salary of employees, it’s refreshing to see executives like Warren Buffet receive sane compensation.

Bloomberg reports:

“Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s Warren Buffett is scoring particularly well on a new rule requiring companies to disclose the ratio of a chief executive officer’s pay to that of the median employee.

His annual compensation of $100,000 was just 1.87 times the median employee’s pay of $53,510, a figure calculated from a sample of about two-thirds of Berkshire’s total employees, according to a filing released Friday. He also gives back about $50,000 to the company “for minor items such as postage or phone calls that are personal,” meaning his take-home pay would be less than that median figure.”
