UAW strike puts spotlight on CEO-worker pay gap

Published September 19, 2023


Michael Dambra appeared live on CBS News to discuss how the United Auto Workers strike has put the spotlight on the pay gap between high-ranking executives and employees. “If you go back to the 60s or 70s, there has been a massive expansion,” of the pay gap between the two groups, he said. Regarding auto companies’ profit-sharing plans, Dambra said while employees do benefit from them, “there is a difference between what Mary Barra makes in her compensation versus the rank and file employee.”
