What's the difference between the CEO's and average worker's pay? While Americans we surveyed believed that employees should be rewarded for their achievements and hard work, 79% of respondents to our 2015 survey said that CEO pay should be included in measuring JUST worker pay & benefits. Our surveys also found that Americans believe that CEO pay is outsized in comparison to the pay that most other workers received.
