Well sure, but as management he doesn’t get overtime when he works more than forty hours a week…and that’s not fair.
Wal-Mart employees average only $8.23 an hour in wages ($329 for a 40-hour week). By contrast, CEO Lee Scott received $295,530 a week in 2003. More than 62% of his $15.3 million in compensation was in the form of stock options or restricted stock.
For a forty-hour week, that works out to $7,388.25 per hour so he makes $7,380.02 per hour more than his average employee. That doesn’t include tips, of course.
