In the race for being the best-paid CEO, Tesla head Elon Musk has grabbed the top spot in the list of highest-paid CEOs in the US in 2019.
This is according to the Bloomberg Pay Index. Elon Musk has managed to make $595.3 million last year, making him the highest-paid CEO by far.
What’s more surprising is that no women have made it to the top 10 list of highest-paid CEOs in the US. In fact, only four women have made it to the top 100 list.

The highest-paid female CEO on the list is AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) CEO Lisa Su, who sits on the 19th spot, earning total compensation of $55.8 million. Next on the list is Safra Catz of Oracle who sits way far on the 36th spot with a compensation of $43.4 million.
Lockheed Martin Chairman Marilyn Hewson claimed the 60th position with a yearly compensation of $32.8 million in 2019. The fourth woman on the list is Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, claiming the 72nd spot with total compensation of $31.8 million.
This list is only evidence of the fact of how women are discriminated against when it comes to equal pay. A stark reminder of the change our society is in dire need of.
