If the AVERAGE CEO of a Forbes 500 company makes 745 times the wages of his average employee and this was taxed to reduce?

it to only 499 times the wage of the average employee, would the tragedy be that his great-great-great-great-grandchildren weren't quite as rich as they might have been? How would THAT feel?

    Yeah but those CEOs work 745 times harder than their average employees. They manage to squeeze 5960 hours into every workday.

    Isn't that an issue for their stock holders. He is paid to produce and make less than a baseball player.

    The stock holders pay the CEO. Unless you are a stockholder then what business is it of yours.

    Let's cap the players of your hockey teams at $500,000 a year and see how long your talent stays.

    That's not what tax is for. Monkey, the average worker works very hard. That is not why they are paid less. Snob.
