Wife of Billionaire George Lucas Slams Rich CEOs on CBS, Irony Hurt Hardest
The wife of billionaire George Lucas took to CBS to attack rich CEOs, saying they need to have “thick skin.”
CBS analyst Mellody Hobson, whose husband George Lucas is worth: $7.3 billion, appeared on: This Morning: to slam excessive salaries for corporate bosses. Discussing income inequality and Barack Obama’s planned discussion at the State of the Union, Hobson lashed out, “If you look today, the typical CEO makes 354 times more than the typical worker in his or her company, mostly his because there are so few women running companies.” [See video below. MP3 audio: here.]: (How much more does the male Lucas make than the average worker?)
She continued, “If you look back to 1980, that difference was just 42 times. So it’s been that kind of income inequality that has started a lot of backlash and chatter…”
That’s a good question.
Compared to Lucas, what does a Best Boy make? : Or a key grip?
I’m sure they all got a cut of the $4 billion Lucas sold his company for. : After all, without them, Star Wars never would have been made.
And what do you make of the “so few women running companies” claim? : Isn’t that sexist?
Let me know in the comments.
