One of the main purposes behind the Occupy movement has been that CEOs are allegedly being compensated too much, as outlined in the ‘CEO Pay Put Into Perspective’ infograph. The graph shows how the average CEO is paid a ratio of 213:1 times more than the median worker. Companies like the Bank of America are running on a deficit annual profit of over $2 billion, yet are still paying its CEOs well over $6 million.

The ‘CEO Pay Put Into Perspective’ infograph comes at a time when this is one of the biggest concerns troubling citizens of the United States. However, it also shows how some companies like Berkshire Hathaway (CEO Warren Buffett) are compensating its CEO $450,000 with a 10:1 ratio of the median worker. The infograph has some great examples of CEO pay in both positive and negative views.
