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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
