In the last thirty years, the average annual compensation of CEOs working at the top 350 publicly owned firms increased by 1435%, from $791,000 in 1965, to over $12 million in 2011. During this same period, wages have likewise increased for everyday workers, from $38,500 to $50,300. This constitutes a wage increase of merely 30%, 1/47th the increase of CEOs.
