I’m writing in support of a strong Dodd-Frank rule 953(b).

There is no valid reason to keep corporate pay ratios between CEOs and average employees a secret. It only does harm, allowing CEOs to give themselves bigger  paychecks at the expense of workers without any accountability. This reckless spending at the top is one of the factors that led to the 2008 crash, so this rule would serve as one of many needed protections from another crash happening.

This rule will also allow consumers like me to vote with our dollars, avoiding companies that are particularly immoral in their treatment of their workers.

Thank you for your time.
