The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) has updated its Executive PayWatch website and the CEO PayWatch Database.
- Case Studies
- What You Can Do
- Searchable Database
- The Top 100 Highest Paid CEOs (2008 or 2009 Data)
The CEO PayWatch Database can be searched by:
- Company Name
- Pay by Industry (Several limits are available)
- Pay by State
- Ticker or Company Name
Sorting of lists generated by the database is possible by clicking on headings.
The database homepage includes information on where the data comes from (frequently from proxy statements filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)).
What Can Be Found:
- What the CEO of a company took in last year.
- How his/her pay package compares with that of the average worker, a minimum wage earner and the president of the United States.
- A fact sheet on such comparisons.
