Media coverage of High Pay Hour 2024

This year it took a typical FTSE 100 CEO less than 30 hours to get paid what the typical UK worker gets paid in a year.

This meant that the typical FTSE 100 CEO would only need to work until 1pm on 4th January – what we have coined as ‘High Pay Hour’ to be paid the typical UK worker’s wage of £34,963.

High Pay Hour was widely reported on by national UK media outlets including the Guardian, BBC News, Sky, the Mirror, Metro, Daily Mail and The Independent.

High Pay Centre representatives discussed High Pay Hour in interviews broadcast by BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio Sussex, Novara Media and Times Radio.
