That seems fair, right? If a massive company is so successful that its CEO earns over $11 million EVERY HOUR, surely it can afford to pay its employees a livable wage?
Regardless, let's do some math. $11,166,666 (what Jeff Bezos earns EVERY HOUR) divided by 341,000 (the number of Amazon employees) comes out to between 32 and 33. What does this mean? It means that Jeff Bezos could increase the hourly wage of EVERY EMPLOYEE by $32 and still earn a six-figure salary.
The average Amazon employee making $15 per hour could have his or her wage increased to $47 per hour, or over $90,000 per year for full-time work, and Jeff Bezos would still be filthy rich.
