Switzerland -Referendum on the wage gap -July 03, 2013

On 2 March 2013 a referendum came out in favour of tougher rules on the setting of managers’ remuneration. 68% of the voters wanted to put limits to the millions handed out in bonuses and severance payments to top managers (see also the March issue of this Newsletter). Coming up is a further referendum on a binding reduction of top pay and an increase in minimum wages. This referendum on the wage gap will stipulate that the highest remuneration within a firm should not be more than twelve times the lowest wages paid. Andreas Rieger reports on these themes in a column.
