  • Drawing on new federal data, the left-leaning research group examined CEO pay and wages at 44 of Ohio’s largest employers.
  • All but five of the 44 CEOs make at least 100 times what their typical worker earns, according to the report, which documented a wide range of gaps between top and average pay.
  • For instance, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch’s compensation of $10.3 million is 3,431 times more than the median Abercrombie pay of $2,991.
  • Other companies with central Ohio ties include: Huntington Bank, whose CEO makes 145 times the pay of the average worker; Big Lots, whose CEO makes 951 times the average workers; and American Electric Power, whose CEO makes 102 times workers’ salary.
