AFL-CIO website with great graphics showing how executive pay has been soaring while worker productivity increases—and you barely get a taste, if that.
     In 2015, CEOs of S&P 500 Index companies received, on average, $12.4 million in total compensation, according to the AFL-CIO’s analysis of available data. In contrast, production and nonsupervisory workers earned only $36,875, on average, in 2015—a CEO-to-worker pay ratio of 335 to 1.
