Good question!

"We focus on the average compensation of CEOs at the 350 largest publicly owned U.S. firms (i.e., firms that sell stock on the open market) by revenue. Our source of data is the S&P Compustat ExecuComp database for the years 1992 to 2021 and survey data published by The Wall Street Journal for selected years back to 1965. We maintain the sample size of 350 firms each year when using the Compustat ExecuComp data"

The data shows a disproportionate amount of wealth increasing for people the richest among us.

That’s the issue.

It’s fine for everyone’s life to get exponentially better. But it’s not cool when a small percentage of people are becoming obscenely more wealthy while most people become poorer
