AFL-CIO ‘Paywatch’ report slams CEO pay but not the high pay of its own execs

by FOXNews.com  |  published on May 12, 2017

UnionsA powerful labor union’s new report slams the pay gap between CEOs and rank-and-file workers, but critics say it conveniently ignores the sky-high salaries union bosses pull down.

The group’s annual Executive Paywatch report, unveiled this week, found that last year the average S&P 500 CEO earned a total of $13.1 million in compensation, while the average U.S. worker made only $37,632, a pay ratio of 347:1. But not included in any of the figures are the total compensations of nearly 192 union presidents who earned more than the average executive’s income.

“By attacking business leaders with cherry-picked data, labor leaders are glossing over their own startling pay discrepancies,” Luka Ladan, spokesman for Center for Union Facts, told Fox News. “The AFL-CIO and its affiliated unions would be better off figuring out how to effectively serve their disgruntled members than scoring cheap PR points.”

    Unions are out dated like the UN/EU and no longer needed this day and time!

      Unions and socialists have given W Europe et al better social disparity, social mobility, healthcare and education systems than the US. I may never have joined one of the former or voted for the latter but only an ignoramus cannot see what they have given those societies. Moron!

        Is that why they’re broke and over run with muslim rats!

        • mrpoohead

          Who isn’t broke – US debt is $17 trillion and growing.

          Germany and UK and a number of others have falling debts, ours is still going up – one should also note that the current world downturn is all of America’s fault. No if’s or but’s – all of our fault!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          2% Muslim population is hardly over-run and some have been there for 500+ years.

          Suggest you do more research!

            I have snowflake, the debt is actually 20.3 trillion, with 13.5 of it Obama’s! Europe did it to their selves by turning to socialism that has destroyed every country that has turned to it!

          • mrpoohead

            Well as I said “growing”, not quite $20 yet, but close.

            US debt is because the Glass-Steagall Act was repealed and bankers went nuts, lending very irresponsibly from both a borrower and investor perspective. No regulation! Then they sold supposed AAAAA debt to Europe to off-load it. That is why Europe was caught up in it too.

            On the bright side the EU sucked it up as they could have sued the banks and broken the US – no, if’s or but’s. Ditto China. They now have the moral high ground.

            Socialism in Europe, alive and kicking for over a hundred years; given them far better societies. Social disparity, social mobility, healthcare and education systems; plus a homicide rate a fifth to a tenth of our toilet!!!!!!!!!!!

            Suggest you research better – again!!!!!!!!!

            Thankfully, this now means the US Empire That Never Was is bust, collapsed like all of the rest. All that awaits is ignominy or self-destruction; respectability was on offer but a choice of Clinton or Trump was the final nail in the coffin! Going down!

            It sure hasn’t hasn’t worked to well for Venezuela, they’re now eating cats, dogs, rats, anything they can get in their hands! No, Europe is NOT doing well, they are broke, and why do you think they’re marching in the streets so often, they’re not getting their retirement pay! It showed them on the FOX NEWS that the banks would only let them have so much money, they don’t have it! If America goes down, so does the W-O-R-L-D! Mark it down!

          • mrpoohead

            Europe. Why are they broke? America.
            Venezuela has not moved to Europe – has it?
            Europe, What “so often” marching in the streets? Banks restricting money really? Try again.
            It’ll take two generations for America to get out of broke, by that time Europe and China will be well ahead.

          • Rodney Steward

            OK, you have just proved to me you’re not keeping up with the world! You’re putting up a good show, but you really don’t have a clue, Typical Dem. BS! Venezuela turned to socialism 7 years ago, and now are almost dead, Europe like America is hiding everything and printing money, when we go we all go! Grow up boy, you sound like a high school kid half the time! Europe won’t be ahead at all, China and Russia will do much better, but Europe hasn’t hit bottom yet, mark it! You’ve put on a good show, but you’re not informed at all grasshopper! A few more ice cream seasons you might be there! Good night grasshopper!

          • mrpoohead

            Go back to irreverent – you at least are reasonable at that. Forget facts, you’re miles away.

            Venezuela – socialist for 20 years next year. See, you know nothing.

            Europe has stopped printing money; thankfully Germany has been very gracious and propped everybody up.
