Living Large As A CEO

The amount of money being paid out to CEOs, even those who fail miserably at their job, is nothing short of obscene. Now don’t get me wrong, I think the astronomical amount of money being made by actors, sports ‘stars’, and other ‘famous because they are famous’ is insane especially when you consider what the police, firemen, teachers .. you know, those people who actually make a real difference in our lives … get paid.

Today CEOs make almost 380 times what the workers in the companies make and then if they screw up they get a bonus that a family in Detroit could live on for the rest of their lives.

This infographic from has some pretty interesting info about who’s being shown the money these days and how much.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
