1.8 Billion-Dollar Salary

May 12, 2014

The top 10 chief executives in the U.S. got 30 million dollars apiece last year. But that’s nothing compared to the top 10 Hedge Fund managers. They averaged 1.8 BILLION each–which comes to $856,000 per hour.

A worker making $40,000 a year would have to work 21 years to make what one of these guys made in one hour.

Surely this is proof, if any more were needed, that this system must be gotten rid of.
