Look fool, you really don't even want to start with the "taxes are higher" bullshit because I can show you facts that will bury you in it over your eyeballs.
Take a look at his tax rate for this scary risky investment income above and beyond his over 12 million a year of "in the bag" vulgar over-compensation, lower than anyone else in the country and there is NO WORK involved.... just for starters.
Risky, yeah right, is he gonna go blow 17,000 an hour and if he gets fired be headed straight for skid row? Sure, be absurd.
One year of his salary and ANYONE should be set for life and so should their grandkids.
Nobody, you asshole, is saying management should make the same amount as those on the line, or that even in some cases an actual blue collar person or two may even make more than some managers...
HOWEVER..... even if your CEO had 35 Phd's from every IVY league college on the planet, he, nor you, will ever be worth 1000 times an hour that of any other human being breathing and I don't care who says otherwise.
You need not concern yourself with any sacrifices I've made or risks taken, you and I are not even from the same species and I'm very certain you'd never be able to comprehend.
I'm not a factory worker and what I have I worked for, earned myself and fought like you'll never know to keep it.
So big effing deal, you went to college, many of us did and managed to remain human enough after obtaining the lambskin to not suddenly become convince we're worth 40, 300, or 1000 times more than other human beings.
It's really interesting to study how when people start being paid absurd amounts of money, how surely and confident they become that not only are they entitled to such vulgar amounts, far above what anyone actually needs to have a FANTASTIC LIFE, but they should also be entitled to much more even if they'll never live long enough to actually enjoy or use a third of it.
I'd venture to say from quite a bit of background info that upper managent has bills to pay too. Their taxes are higher. They've got student loans to pay back because that was the avenue they took to get into that upper management position you're scoffing at. They took risks to get into the position that currently hold. What risk did you take for your job? Do you think that those who have more responsibility, who took more risks, who've gained experience and moved their families in order to take a better paying position should be compensated at the same rate as employees straight out of high school who move right into the work force? I've got news for you...the kind of equality you all who want to "stick it to the man want" doesn't lead to an equally middle class population. It leads to communist regimes where the rich are even richer and the rest of us are all equally poor.
