      which was cash to the CEOs isn't what is keeping down wages for the hourly workers. Total CEO compensation is clearly driving the inequality, but the diary author was trying to make the point that CEO pay was holding back compensating hourly workers in a fair manner. Even if you take the total cash compensation of the five highest paid people at Fortune 500 companies the total cash compensation doesn't represent 1% of the company's total payroll.
