Pay: CEOs in Minnesota make 127% more than average workers, according to a new report released by the AFL-CIO. It found that the average CEO of a company based in Minnesota made $5,725,683 compared to the $44,932 earned by the average Minnesota private sector worker. This staggering statistic is just further evidence of an increasing income inequality across the country and state.
