Wage stagnation is being debated as various sectors suggest slides while others hint at improvements. That’s true for typical workers. CEOs, however, are making much more.

CEOs now make 303 times the typical worker, and much more than the lowest paid workers. The disparity has only been this great twice before: prior to the Internet crash, and prior to the Great Recession.
