Are CEO's paid too much?

No! Consider a corporation as a pack of wolves. The alpha males fight to the death for supremacy and leadership of the pack. One emerges--for the moment! Until he falls, like royalty, he is accorded all respect and reward. UNTIL..........

You Liberals always like to covet the wealth of successful people, because you think they have more than enough money to spread around. Because you are a failure and never did anything successful in your life, so you want to take the money of rich people.

The truth is that most CEOs refuse to take a salary. Look at Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, the only pay they took while working for their companies was stock options. So in their case, they were only rewarded for their performance if the company did well.

For years and years in the beginnings of Microsoft, Bill Gates didn't take home any money at all.

That's because the people who own smaller companies may make a lot of money, but that is only on paper. All of their money always goes back into the company.

That's because rich CEOs create jobs, put people to work, and they spend all their own money writing your paycheck, dummy.

Yes. America should adopt a communist doctrine where wealth is taken away from the rich and distributed amongst ALL the citizens. True equality.

Anyone who thinks CEOs are paid too much should try to get a job as a CEO. Most CEOs have a work schedule that I am not willing to take on, regardless of the pay (knowing I don't have the intellect to serve as a CEO)....

Its according to what they do and how well they do it. I have seen some CEO's who did not deserve their pay and I have seen some that were every bit worth their pay. It's according to the individual and the effort put behind it.
