The salary gulf between ‘thin cats’ and ‘fat cats’

The upstairs-downstairs state of Britain’s workforce continues to exist, with the highest-paid workers now earning 16 times the average salary of those at the bottom of the pay ladder, a new report shows.

A mere 16x salary difference is news in the UK. Their top CEOs make about USD $400,000. And they think this is problematic. Meanwhile in the US, CEO salaries of 5-10-20 million (with bonuses and stock options) are not uncommon. Oink, oink, oink.
