CEOs are a no show! 😡 The median Amazon employee earns $28,000 in a year. Jeff Bezos makes more than that in 10 SECONDS. If Bezos shared even half of his wealth with his 566,000 employees, they'd each get $231,449.

I don't want stuff for free, but can I at least make a living wage? I work 40+ hrs a week and pay $1300/mo rent (not counting utilities). Luckily I don't have a car payment or kids! AND I am still broke as a joke. These big wigs couldn't survive a day in our shoes!

Top CEOs make more than 300 times -or more -of the average worker "In between 1978 & 2014, inflation-adjusted CEO pay increased by almost 1,000%, Meanwhile typical workers in the U.S. saw a pay raise of just 11% during that same period"

American Airlines is using $2 billion in profits on stock buybacks and will pay its CEO up to $31 million in total compensation this year. Its ticket agents at Envoy Air make as little as $9.48 an hour, forcing many to rely on taxpayer assistance to make ends meet.

Y’all understand the real enemy is the 1% that holds most of the country’s wealth and buy off politicians to give them tax cuts

When you find out that amazon works the employees to the point that some don’t want to live. This could be considered modern day slavery. Shameful

Replying to @uaw2865
meanwhile, when we demanded UC close the gap for TAs and student workers with those at our peer institutions, the university offered us a 2% raise. that's less than inflation in CA.

If you work 40 hours a week, you should NOT be living in poverty, you SHOULD be earning at least $15 an hour. RT if you agree.

It’s appalling that the ratio of CEO to average worker pay is higher in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world. Corporations don’t need more tax cuts that they can spend on stock buybacks and executive pay. They need to start investing in the workers.

The next time an executive at Mcdonald's or Walmart says that they can’t afford to pay their workers more, ask them why their CEOs are paid over 1000 times as much as the median employee.
