the Washington Think Tank Policy Research Institute issued a report that same day that, from the perspective of the 100 companies with the lowest median employee salary in the S&P 500 Index in 2020, the average income of their chief executive officers (CEOs) Reached US$15.3 million, an increase of 29% compared to the previous year, but the average median income of its employees was only US$28,187, a decrease of 2% year-on-year. These companies not only provided generous bonuses to their executives during the epidemic, but also gave up their basic performance evaluation. Among them, Hilton CEO Nasetta had the highest income at 55.9 million US dollars, but the median income of the company’s employees was only 28,608 US dollars.
In this regard, the author of the report urged all walks of life to support the previously proposed “CEO Excessive Salary Tax Act.” The bill will levy taxes on companies with an excessively high income ratio between executives and ordinary employees in order to narrow the gap in corporate income. The proponent of the bill, U.S. Senator Sanders, said: “During the epidemic, millions of people were unable to eat, but at the same time, many billionaires with a net worth of $1 billion became increasingly wealthy. . Is this the America we want? I don’t think so.”
Nowadays, many French stunt actresses are being trained in professional stunt academies, and they are in short supply in Hollywood and European film circles.
According to a Reuters report on the 11th, in the world’s largest aerobatic school-Cascade University College (CUC), now 1/3 of the students are women. On campus, you can often see female students practicing fighting and building Parkour on the ground, even jumping from the helicopter to the next class. In view of the increasing popularity of female superhero roles in the international film world, the demand for stunt actresses who act as stand-ins for stars has also skyrocketed. The head of the school said, “These female students were snatched away by film companies on both sides of the Atlantic before they even graduated.”
The French news network reported that in the past, the dangerous actions of these female characters were usually performed by male stuntmen in disguise. Until 2017, American stunt actress Devin Marknell filed a complaint with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, arguing that this was discrimination against female practitioners by film companies and labor unions. CUC Dean Lucas Dolfoss said that people’s perceptions are changing, “We don’t need wigs anymore, and women are fully qualified as stunt performers.”
Since the beginning of this year, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has received 1,300 complaints about passengers disrupting the order of the aircraft, which is equivalent to the sum of the past 10 years.
The British “Guardian” reported on the 11th that since January this year, the FAA has begun to severely disrupt the flight order. If flight passengers have made any disturbing behavior, they will be warned first, and will be punished if they refuse to obey. Now, the FAA has the right to directly impose civil penalties on those who disturb the order, and the relevant departments can also bring suits against criminal offences.
Recently, the FAA imposed a huge fine of $10,500 on a passenger who disturbed the order on the plane, because the person refused to wear a mask while on the flight, and even blew his nose into the blanket distributed to the passengers after coughing. Another passenger who disturbed the order on the plane was fined $9,000 because he beat the upper luggage rack on the plane and cursed the flight attendant and the captain. According to statistics, at least 3,000 people have been blacklisted by American airlines for refusing to wear masks.
