Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Unilever boss earns 292 times as much as ‘average’ employee

The so-called pay gap – the difference in salary between the highest boss of a corporation and the average employee – is biggest in the Netherlands at Unilever. CEO Paul Polman receives 292 times more than the average worker of the detergent and food corporation, according to research by Het Financieele Dagblad daily.

Just behind that comes the CEO of beer brewer Heineken, Jean Francois van Boxmeer. His remuneration is 277 times higher than that of the average employee. The top men of publisher Relx (184 times), supermarket group Ahold Delhaize (182 times) and publisher Wolters Kluwer (168 times) complete the top five.

Unilever CEO Paul Polman gets 51 percent rise to bring pay package to £10.3 million. March 6, 2018: here. And here. And here.

USA: The wage gap costs Black women nearly $1 million in their lifetimes.
