PRESS CALL Featuring Comptroller Scott Stringer: New Demos Report Shows Fast-Food With Greatest CEO-to-Worker Pay Disparity in Economy

(New York, NY) – Today, national public policy organization Demos will release a new report examining the latest CEO-to-worker compensation ratios of the largest publicly traded fast food companies and shows that the fast-food industry has the greatest pay disparity in our economy, with ratios exceeding 1,000-to-1. 

The study argues that it is important to shareholders, executives, and workers that companies address the practices, including soaring executive compensation, that drive the growing pay disparity between CEOs and front-line workers in the Accommodation and Food Services sector.

Please join us at 11:00 AM ET today, April 22nd to discuss how extreme pay differences negatively impacts individual firms in the fast-food industry and the economy overall.
