In Canada, the average CEO makes about $40,000 a day. That’s how much the average Canadian earns in a whole year. Today, the gap between rich and poor is as wide as it was in the 1920s. Although Canada’s economy has grown significantly over the last 15 years, most of the benefits of growth have gone to the very wealthy.
