UK poll: many in finance say colleagues overpaid

A poll of managers in the financial services industry has found that many believe that some of their colleagues are paid too much.
The poll commissioned by the St. Paul's Institute at St. Paul's Cathedral found that 66 percent of the sample thought bond traders earned too much and 63 percent believed chief executives of the UK's top 100 corporations were overpaid.
Three-fourths believed the gap between rich and poor was too large in Britain, and 70 percent thought teachers were underpaid.
The ComRes poll, released Monday, was based on online responses of 515 managers in the finance industry between Aug. 30 and Sept. 12. It has an error margin of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
Publication of the report was delayed because of the Occupy Wall Street protest outside London's St. Paul's Cathedral.
