I am very agree that something must be done with the level of lederlenn and bonuses in some international companies. It is outrageous that some executives earn 350 times more than an average worker, “says investor Stein Erik Hagen told NTB.
Rimi-founder and Orkla-chairman is present in Davos during the Summit of World Economic Forum, where international trade organizations are fighting hard to draw attention to unemployment and unreasonable wage.
Hagen supports the fight, but stresses that it is not Norwegian conditions, he said anything about.
- In Norway, we have the grotesque conditions in some other countries, where bonuses are beyond all proportions. Norwegian executive pay is among the most moderate in Europe. They are much higher in for example Sweden and Denmark, “said Hagen, who last year flagged the largest part of the capital to Switzerland in protest against the Norwegian tax system.
