In 1982, CEOs were paid 42 times more than the average worker. Thirty years later, that disparity ballooned to 354 times more.

In spite of the fact that American workers are more productive than ever, year after year, studies show that they earn less and less, even as CEO pay balloons and corporate profits soar.

This is outrageous, and needs to stop.

Please let Americans know these scandalous disparities by publicly disclosing them.

Thank you for your consideration.
