Where GPC membership collaborates to develop our policies
G21-P046 Maximum Compensation | VGM-2 Amended Version
Ratification Vote Results: Adopted
This is the amended proposal adopted by GPC membership at the VGM-2.
The Green Party of Canada supports a Maximum Compensation policy, where the highest compensation within an organization is no more than ten times the lowest compensation in that organization.
This policy hopes to curb rampant wealth inequality by ensuring that no individual earns more than ten times more than someone else within their organization.
The advancement of post-industrial capitalism exacerbates enormous wealth inequality, and presently there are no apparent efforts to cap the wealthiest end. Applying this policy ensures that the highest income earners will no longer hoard enormous wealth while also incentivizing them to support the lowest earners in their organization.
