Anymore its how vast a CEO s network of lobbyists are as well.If his lobbyists can get special favors from politicians no matter dem or rep, if he can save a company 50 million dollars in tax liability its worth paying the ceo half that.<quoted text>
CEO's get paid by how good of a job they do just like you or I. If a CEO saves a company 12 million dollars, than without a doubt, he or she will share in some of that profit they made for the company.
The worker on the other hand only produces and is paid by how much he can produce in an hours time. If the worker produces more thus making the company a little more profit, he or she will likely make more than those that produce less.
Workers are not paid by how profitable the company is. If one believes that they should get paid according to the profit a company makes, then they should only work jobs that offer profit sharing or perhaps buy stock in the company they work for.
Speaking of consumers though, it's the consumer that drives the demand for lower priced cheaper products--not the CEO. The CEO's job is to make the company the most money he or she can. If the CEO can't do that, then the company lets him go and they hire somebody that can. On the other hand, a great CEO has a price he will work for. If a company doesn't want to pay the CEO that salary, the companies competitor will. It's no different than a famous musician looking at a recording contract, a star quarterback or a famous actor or actress.
That's what peons like canton NEVER can see. Theyll never read books to find that the Fair Tax would negate all that Bullshitt. Theyd sooner just take everyone's money and divide it up evenly cause somehow its their belief that they too will live like Doctors and Lawyers all of a sudden.
That's another part about people like Canton. They can't do the math to realize that if we divide up Bill Gates 75 billion dollar fortune it only amounts to 231 bucks per person in the US. Woot.... I guess Canton would be livin high on the hog with 231 bucks but ffor normal people that won't go far.
