“Bosses at Britain’s FTSE 100-listed companies are raking in 117 times more a year than a worker on the average salary of just under £30,000.
Chief executives at the UK’s top 100 companies were paid £3.46million on average last year, down 13 per cent from £3.97million the year before.
Former Persimmon boss Jeff Fairburn was the biggest FTSE 100 earner last year, trousering £38.97million.

Fairburn’s salary for 2018 was 1,318 times more than the median salary of a full-time worker in the UK.
It would take an average worker nearly three days to earn what Fairburn raked in during a single minute, according to Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and High Pay Centre analysis. …”
