286 times his salary, or half as much as the CEO.

That is equivalent to about 17 years of employment.

330 times as much, not 286.

Whoever wrote this article either used the wrong numbers, or didn't have a calculator.

However, it's probably difficult to get interest on stolen money. But, I suppose the person just needs to lay low for 10 years or so.

Years ago payroll screwed up a new guys paycheck.  Instead of 40 hours for the week paying $1000, they paid him 40 hours @ $1000.  He got his stub and was um there's something wrong with this.

Average CEO pay in Chile is $94k, according to Google.  Average pay is $980/month, or just under $12k.  That makes it about 8x the average worker.

The company will let him keep the 401K match, right?

At least the pay isn't as lopsided as the US, which was 351-to-1 in 2020.

When you read those articles about CEO's making 300 times what the average worker makes, it's almost always based on a short list of CEO's, typically of fortune 500 companies, and often times not even the full list.

According to Salary.com, the median CEO salary in the US is about $800,000 a year, when you count bonuses it goes up to $1.288 million a year.  Which is a lot of money, but you do have to consider that most companies have their headquarters in world class cities.  There are probably more CEO's in NYC than there are in all of most states.

Then there's the fact that the highest paid ones make most of their money through stocks.  They're typically also founders of their company and as such were effectively early investors and major shareholders in humungous corporations.

Don't get me wrong, it's still ridiculous.  No human being is worth 351 times as much as the average human being.  But the situation is bad enough without exaggerating it.

I got double paid at an old job.  My biggest regret was not keeping the money.

Basically, I had changed jobs within the company and right after I changed jobs they announced they were going bankrupt.  If you stayed until they completely shut down, you got a severance package.  since I didn't have another job yet, I opted to stay.

Basically, the accounting people at the corporate office did get other jobs and promptly quick.  Because I was in transition, they paid me for both the new job and then also paid me for the old job.  I reported it to my boss, he called corporate and they pulled the money back.  Next paycheck, same thing happened.  I reported it again, he checked into it and they pulled the excess money back.  Next paycheck, same thing.  Again, after reporting it they pulled it back.  Last paycheck before the company went under, double check.  Called my now former boss and he was like "Just keep it."  You tried to do the right thing and obviously they wanted you to have extra.  He then added that while they were pulling the money back, they never fixed the initial problem which is why I kept getting the double check.  Besides, the company that overpaid me was dissolved at midnight after the check was paid, so there isn't a way to give the money back to them anyway.

I should have just kept my mouth shut and gotten double paid for the last two months instead of for the last two weeks.

I don't understand how this would work... it's not like he withdrew the money, so how does he even have the money to give it back?  The bank has it, they've always had it, can't they just freeze the account until it's all sorted out?
