A new study by Lawrence Mishel and Heidi Shierholz of the Economic Policy Institute, found that productivity grew by a whopping 62.5 percent between 1989 and 2010, but that real hourly wages increased by just 12 percent over the same period. That suggests that companies are giving far more of their profits to shareholders, and far less to workers. Indeed, corporate profits are 22 percent above where they were before the recession. In addition A chief executive officer of a S&P 500 index company was paid an average $9.25 million in total compensation in 2010, or 180 times that of a average worker (not including other C-Level executives and board members), a increase over the 40 time disparity in 1970.
I am curious what is the Tea Party / Conservative solution to this issue is. Is it not a problem?
