I'm Rich Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO. Ask Me Anything About CEO Pay.
My name is Rich Trumka and I represent more than 12.5 million workers as the president of the AFL-CIO, the country’s largest federation of labor unions. Every year the AFL-CIO releases authoritative, user-friendly facts on CEO pay (www.paywatch.org) at top companies so people can compare their own pay to what those executives make. In 2013, the average CEO made 331 times more than the average worker. This year we’re also focusing on the highest paid CEOs at low-wage companies like Walmart.
I’m answering questions from 3-4 p.m. on why CEO Pay matters to working people. A staff member is helping me type so I can answer your questions quickly, but all responses are 100% my own words. You can follow me on Twitter.
