Whole Foods Co-CEO Makes His Case For Low CEO Compensation

Whole Foods co-CEO Walter Robb makes a case for having lower CEO compensation. "I can look a team member in the eye and say I'm doing exactly what you're doing," Robb said, referring to his compensation being capped at 19 times the average employee's salary. Not so sure that the rank-and-file team member in question will see Robb making 19 times more as "doing exactly what you're doing." And granted Robb's package is low compared with comparable CEOs, his package still topped a million dollars last year. Story
