The gap between rich and poor is well illustrated by the large multi-billion  dollar corporations employing thousands of low-wage workers. With the Great  Recession over, not only are many of these companies now hitting record profits,  but their executive pay remains spectacularly high. Meanwhile, according to a  report released by the National Employment Law Project, the current federal  minimum wage the workers are often paid, is worth 30% less than it was in 1968  in terms of purchasing power.

The report also provided the  most recent available data on the total size of the companies’ workforces, the  recent performance of the corporations in terms of revenue and profit, and the  highest executive pay at these companies. 24/7 Wall St. also reviewed revenue,  income, and the number of stores from company filings.
