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
  • Robert Niblock, Lowe’s – $6,325
  • Hubert Joly, Best Buy – $6,220

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
