A CAP blog post was referenced in an article discussing the introduction of the Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act, a bill that raises taxes on companies that pay their top executives at least 50 times more than the pay of a median worker. CAP’s blog post explained how historically, comparing CEO pay ratios have been of limited usefulness. The variability across industries and diverse workforce locations prevents pay ratios from being a reliable comparator. In addition, these differences were exasperated in 2020 due to inconsistent business disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
