You’re going to want a raise after reading this. Marketing firm MVF Global has calculated the “true value” of employees around the world, and maybe not surprisingly there is a pretty large gap between what workers at the world’s largest companies are paid and what they’re actually worth to the company. …. Each employee at Apple, for instance, generates US$1.9 million in revenue annually, MVF calculated. An Apple Store “genius” earns between $29,000 and $55,000 a year, or as little as 1/60th of the revenue they generate. And that doesn’t include all the people working for peanuts at Apple’s contractors in Asia. Each employee at Walmart generates much less — US$220,750 — in revenue annually, but the average Walmart sales associate in the U.S. earns $15,576 annually. As sad as that salary is, it works out to about 1/14th of the revenue Walmart generates per employee. …..
