The head of the GMB union has slammed fat cat salaries and urged the Government to get involved and bring rises more into line with the national average.
Kevin Curran, general secretary of the GMB criticised the 'sickening greed' of Britain's bosses after a survey by the Guardian newspaper revealed director's pay rose seven times faster than that of their workers.
The survey also revealed that the average salary of a FTSE 100 chief executive is now a staggering £1,677,685.
"Working people will be sickened at the level of these pay rises. Fat cat directors seem incapable of self-restraint when it comes to their own pay. The GMB believes therefore that the Government should do it for them and force bosses to accept the same pay rises that they give their workers," he said.
