Dear Securities and Exchange Commission:
I am an investor in publicly traded companies through my retirement plan and personal savings.
I strongly support the SEC’s proposal requiring companies to disclose the CEO-to-median worker pay ratio, as required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
I also believe the rule should be extended considerably, to REQUIRE any publicly-traded company to maintain a CEO-to-lowest-paid worker ratio of no greater than 20 to 1, including all forms of deferred compensation, and extending to the extrapolated yearly wage of all hourly contract workers.
