Irish Inequality

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has warned of “a growing wage gap that will inevitably lead to a rise in wider inequality” following the publication of its annual survey of executive pay levels in the private sector. 

In some instances, the study suggests it would take people on average earnings up to 270 years to earn what the CEO of some companies make in one year.

The report also reveals pay increases for some chief executives of up to 100%, between 2015 and 2016 and along with a near doubling of cash bonuses for some.
