AFL-CIO blasts pay gap bettween Michigan CEOs, workers

LANSING (WKZO) -- The AFL-CIO is calling attention to its latest study of pay differences between average workers and CEOs in an effort to paint business leaders as getting rich off the backs of employees. Their Executive PayWatch website includes testimonials from workers at five national companies, including Kellogg's.

The AFL-CIO says the highest paid chief executive in Michigan is Brett Roberts of Southfield-based Credit Acceptance Corporation, who earned just over 54-million dollars last year. In contrast, the union says the average worker in the state earns about 41-thousand dollars, and the average CEO for a Michigan-based company earns just over seven-million a year.
