121. THE SKY’S THE LIMIT: reining in the fat cat pay gap

Hello! The typical FTSE 100 CEO only had to work until 5pm last Monday (6th January) to earn as much as the average worker in the entire year. We chat to Deborah Hargreaves, director of the High Pay Centre, about rising executive pay and why she advocates including workers on company boards to tackle it. Then legal history whizz Ewan McGaughey explains what we can learn from the history of worker representation in the UK and around the world.


AND 

Fabulous author Nina Stibbe is here to talk about her latest book, ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ (nice title…!)
