Should there be a limit to how much top bosses get paid?

Swiss voters are going to the polls this weekend to decide on strict new laws to limit executive pay.

The measures, if approved, would limit the salaries of top managers to no more than 12 times the wage of the lowest-paid worker in the same company.

The BBC examines some of the figures involved.
