  •  CEOs and Financial emp make more than all unions (5+ / 0-)
    Corporate executives and financial employees make up just  one-half of 1%  of the workforce, but with nearly a trillion dollars of annual income ( 11.3% of $8.12 trillion ), they make more than ALL 15 million unionized workers in the United States, and almost as much as ALL  21 million  government workers. Much of their income  derives from minimally-taxed capital gains . Meanwhile, the great majority of their private company employees toil as food servers, clerks, medical workers, and domestic help at below-average pay.
