Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, the NRA...they all spread their conspiracy theories and have built a culture of fear in the United States.

The AFL-CIO has released this year’s 2014 Executive PayWatch at a “comprehensive searchable online database tracking the excessive pay of CEOs of the nation’s largest companies.” PayWatch.org offers workers the unique ability to compare their own pay to the pay of top executives. According to Executive PayWatch data, U.S. CEOs pocketed, on average, $11.7 million in 2013, compared to the average worker who earned $35,293. That means CEOs were paid 331 times that of the average worker.
