By 5pm on the third working day of 2020 (January 6), the average FTSE 100 CEO had already taken home the equivalent of what a typical UK worker makes within a year. The research, which was conducted by the CIPD and think-tank The High Pay Centre, revealed some ‘eye-watering’ statistics about the discrepancy in pay between the average FTSE 100 CEO and that of their workers.
