The Rich Getting Richer

From 1978 to 2013, CEO compensation, inflation-adjusted, has increased 937 percent compared to the 10.2 percent growth in a typical worker’s compensation over the same period. In the top 350 American firms the average CEO compensation was $15.2 million in 2013.

The average worker’s fantasy of one day acheiving the American dream is probably the reason that most do not begrudge CEOs their astronomical salaries. They hope that one day they too can be in that position. I can not think of no other reason why our middle class has allowed itself to be so abused over the last 20 years.
