On January 1, 2016 at 8:48 in the morning the CEO of CVS already made more money than you.
More money than the median income of a CVS employee.
The most recent figure from EPI is for 2014. That year, CEOs earned 303 times as much as the average, non-management employee. Before the sun rose on Jan. 2, he or she had earned that employee’s salary. (That didn’t change much from 2013.) But 2014 wasn’t the peak. The peak was in 2000, when the average CEO earned his average employee’s salary before Jan. 1 was even over.
