The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 3-2 Wednesday to require public companies to disclose the ratio of their chief executive officer’s pay to the median compensation of their employees. Supporters say the pay ratio rule, which came about as part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial regulation reforms, will discourage excessive CEO compensation. Detractors say the rule will be difficult to implement and have little impact on income inequality.
