Income and wealth inequality are among the most fundamental determinants of health. The stark nature of current economic inequality in Canada has been highlighted by a recent Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives study Timing is Everything: Comparing the earnings of Canada’s highest-paid CEOs and the rest of us by CCPA research associate Hugh Mackenzie. It finds that by 9:46AM on January 2nd Canada’s 100 highest-paid CEOs will have reaped, on average, $38,010 in pay. That equals the average annual earnings of workers in Canada. By 6:00 they will have pocketed nearly $70,000. This and other research on the impact of inequality can be found at the CCPA website and at the Growing Gap website.
