In 2014 , the CEO-to-worker pay ratio was … 373:1. In 2013, it was 331:1 .
The “wage gap” continues to increase. Inequality is continuing to skyrocket while many workers who are working 40 hours or more a week are living in or on the brink of poverty.
While the working class produce the products and provide the services that generate wealth, it is the capitalist class that collects and accumulates that wealth.
Are you feeling the need for a REVOLUTION yet?
The share of national income that goes to wages has fallen below 50 percent for the first time in 60 years, and in the last decade alone, there has been a shift of about $750 billion annually from labor to capital–truly Robin Hood in reverse.
This highlights one of capitalism’s most obscene contradictions: The system has created such enormous productivity increases that it would be possible to pay workers more money for a shorter workweek–yet the exact opposite is taking place. Workers are putting in more hours and getting paid less–while profits grow and the already super rich get super richer.
 The last year statistics are available.
