The top four highest-paid retail and restaurant CEOs all make at least $9,000 every 60 minutes.

After combing through data from S&P Market Intelligence, USA Today compiled a ranking of the 10 highest-paid CEOs in the restaurant and retail industries. The article says that the data spans 76 restaurant and retail companies in the Standard & Poor’s Composite 1500 that have disclosed their executive pay for the 2015 fiscal year. As the figures below indicate, being the head honcho of a publicly traded retail giant is “nice work, if you can get it,” says Brandon Rees, deputy director of the office of investment at labor union AFL-CIO.

Here are the top 10 highest-paid restaurant and retail CEOs on a per-hour basis, according to the news outlet:

  • Larry Merlo, CVS Health – $13,915
  • Leslie Wexner, L Brands – $13,062
  • Howard Schultz, Starbucks – $9,659
  • Doug McMillon, Walmart – $9,323
  • Steven Ells, Chipotle – $6,653
  • Montgomery Moran, Chipotle – $6,520

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
