    CEO pay compared to average workers:
    Japan 11:1
    Germany 12:1
    France 15:1
    Italy 20:1
    Great Britain 22:1
    U.S. 325:1
    Coincidently, in 1950 corporations paid $3 in taxes for every $1 paid by workers in taxes. Today, for every $1 in taxes paid by workers, corporations pay 22 cents.
