  1. Hi, Here is another post from this article:
    Research indicates that companies with high estimated chief executive officer-worker pay ratios have lower employee morale and lower shareholder returns compared to companies with lower ratios.
    For example, the job site Glassdoor analyzed 1.2 million chief executive officer ratings from current and former employees, finding that higher chief executive officer compensation is statistically linked with lower approval ratings for those executives.
    A review of pay ratios and long term shareholder returns by CtW Investment Group found that companies with high pay ratios perform worse than companies with lower ratios over a five-year research period.
    Thanks. God bless.
    Aaron
