pay ratio is a horrible measure.. there is one CEO that guides the entire company and has significant effect on the companies decisions and direction which ultimately is a win or lose for the company.

The average employee represent large numbers of generally low-skill workers. I dont think I've ever ordered something at mcdonalds without someone messing up my order... their quality of work is minimum just as their wage is, and thus fair.

In fact there is only one CEO and tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of employees. But that ratio CEOs should make 10x more, not less.

Klye@khird@qoto.org@gawrsh Math seems off in calculating the ratios. McDonald's is 563:1; Papa John's is 961:1 as I run the numbers. Intuitively it doesn't make sense that the McDonald's ratio is nearly 2x higher given that they report both a lower executive salary and higher median salary.

I take it the median is dragged down because these companies mostly employ part timers? Even at current US national minimum wage, those medians aren't close to the 2000 hours per year a full time employee puts in.
