A new analysis from the Economic Policy Institute reveals that the CEOs of America's top 25 restaurant corporations — including the likes of McDonald's and Chipotle — took home, on average, 721 times more money than minimum wage workers last year. CEOs made around $10,872,390 in 2013, while full-time minimum-wage employees made $15,080. Mother Jones points out that these CEOs make "more money in half a day than their employees make in a year."
