According to data released by the AFL-CIO today, CEOs of S&P 500 Index companies were paid an average of $12.9 million in 2011 – a 14 percent raise. In stark contrast, the average wage for Pennsylvania workers in 2011 was $44,070 – a 2.4% percent increase that barely keeps up with inflation.

Pennsylvanians can see how their salaries stacks up next to Pennsylvania CEOs’ using the newly designed Executive PayWatch, a searchable online databank that provides direct comparison of top CEO pay to the average wages of workers.

The Paywatch database will also display a list of highest paid CEOs by state.
