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

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
