…That is how long it would take Barack Obama (or any POTUS at the current pay) to make what the CEO of Hewlitt-Packard makes in 1 year. This, according to the graphic reproduced here (from this original piece). Of course, we cannot all be leader of the fee world. If you are an “average worker” making around $40K, it will take you 836 years to reach H-P CEO bank.
I’ve heard some say that the next world war will be fought over water. Perhaps. But will the next US revolution be fought over income disparities?
Doesn’t seem plausible, IMO. Many folks seem to think that they—with hard work and a “quality education”—might one day pull down H-P CEO-type money, or position their kids so that they might. In the meantime, so much more efficient to blame affirmative action or immigration for any lack of personal income power.
