ICYMI: yesterday was #FatCatFriday, the fourth day of the year by which the highest paid CEOs have earned as much as it takes most people one year to earn. Labour will fix our broken economy and rebuild a fairer Britain #JC4PM

Gross - gross inequality when the average CEO's wages will be more by the end of today than the average worker's wages for the whole year! This is why we need a government for the many not the privileged few. #FatCatFriday
Just six FTSE 100 chief executives are women and they earn 54 per cent of the amount paid to their male counterparts, highlighting the yawning gap in pay at the highest levels of UK companies. The six ...

Today is #FatCatFriday. It's simply wrong that top CEOs are paid more in the first three days of 2019 than an average worker earns in a year. It shows our economic system is rigged in favour of the privileged few.
A report by the High Pay Centre think tank and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) says chief executives of FTSE 100 firms have average pay packets £3.9 million, around £1,000 ...

#FatCatFriday fact check!! * in the last 4 days the UKs top bosses have earned more than an ave worker does in a entire year ....They’re paid more than 133 times more than the ave worker ....They’re ave wage is £3.9m per year @UKLabour will act by bringing in pay ratios
The huge disparity in pay over just four days has been some forty years in the making. Privatisation, liberalisation, financialisation, the erosion of manufacturing and an attack on workers’ ability ...

Obscene that today, on the third working day of 2019, fat cat bosses have already earned what a typical worker will earn ALL YEAR. It's time to narrow the pay gap in our increasingly unequal society. #FatCatFriday @GMB_Union

When you can lose billions in a year but still be amongst the most richest, most powerful people on the planet, you got be a fat cat. A very, very, very fat cat. #FatCatFriday

On #FatCatFriday we can’t just sit and moan - it’s time for Trade Unions in the UK to step up and deliver a new deal for workers. My article for @HuffPostUK https:// m.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/fat-cat- friday_uk_5c2f72f3e4b0407e908aeabf?zy&ec_carp=4335304483574676069&guccounter=1   …
No matter how good someone is at their job I think it's obscene that these fat cat bosses already have earned more this year than most of us get ALL year. This gross inequality keeps getting bigger every year, we have to rebalance society. #FatCatFriday https://www. independent.co.uk/news/business/ news/fat-cat-friday-ftse-100-bosses-pay-average-remuneration-2019-a8709966.html?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1546561534   …

Sickening that top bosses earn 133 times more than a worker earning the average UK wage. It's time to narrow the pay gap #FatCatFriday

CEOs get huge salaries while workers struggle to get by It’s time for a 10:1 ratio for CEO/worker pay! Let’s make 2019 the year where we build a world of work that works for everyone #fatcatfriday https://www. bbc.co.uk/news/business- 46744840   …

CEOs of UK’s top 100 companies paid on avg £3.9m p/y (133x avg worker). That means that today is #FatCatFriday: they only need to work 29 hrs to receive what an avg worker earns in a year. And it’s rising: by 11% in the last yr. Only @UKLabour will do anything about excessive pay https:// twitter.com/RLong_Bailey/s tatus/1081094378502963200   …

It’s a national disgrace that CEOs have already made more than the average worker will in 2019. With political will we can address this injustice. Govt need to adopt our policy of a 10:1 pay ratio fast! #fatcatfriday https://www. bbc.co.uk/news/business- 46744840   …

If so many people are defecting from Labour because of Jeremy Corbyn, why manufacture FALSE examples? *why are such filthy, underhand, deceitful and disgusting tactics deemed necessary* And who's paying for it? #FatCatFriday https:// voxpoliticalonline.com/2019/01/04/if- so-many-people-are-defecting-from-labour-because-of-jeremy-corbyn-why-manufacture-false-examples/   …

Dear averagely-paid worker, If you voted Tory in 2017, we'd like to thank you for your continued stupidity. We've now earned more than in 3 days than you will earn all year. Yours extravagantly, The super-rich. #FatCatFriday

Today is #FatCatFriday. Only 4 days in to 2019, it’s the day that CEOs of the #FTSE100 companies earn the equivalent of the yearly wage of those workers on average pay. Something’s gone seriously wrong with this country. We must fix it. #GetTheToriesOut
