Michael O’Leary thinks he works fifty times harder than his employees

By Alex Hern

I’m paid about 20 times more than the average employee and I think that gap should be wider. I probably work 50 times harder. I was paid €1.2m last year for carrying 80 million passengers. Aer Lingus’s boss [Christoph Mueller] got €1.3m for carrying nine million passengers. I think I’m the most underpaid and underappreciated airline boss in Europe.

Via the Economist’s Daniel Knowles, Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary gives a characteristically frank interview to Management Today.
