In Spain you earn “poco”, they do not appreciate talent and always try to make you work more for less. Different in the US, where many things are going wrong, but talents and working spirit pays off. It is not a society of friends and families but of effort. It would take Spanish workers 24 weeks, 1 day and 6 hours to make what Elon Musk does in five working minutes (€12,854).





In second place is Tim Cook (current Apple CEO)! It would take Spanish workers 5 weeks, 2 days and 3 hours to earn what he does in five minutes (€2,888). Interestingly, Spanish workers would have to spend 3 weeks, 2 days and 5 hours to accumulate the same five-minute income as Sundar Pichai (€1,861), head of Alphabet Inc. (Google). 78% of Spanish workers feel that it is ‘unjustified’ for major CEOs to be paid millions each year. 73% of Spanish workers don’t understand what major CEOs do on a day-to-day basis to merit being paid millions each year.
