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.<quoted text>This is long past stating, again & again for some people. Especially the ones that do not realize that EVERY expense incurred by a corporation MUST be passed on to the end consumer or they must close their doors. Economics 101.
The CEO's will always get there's or move to another company. duh
Keep telling them!
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.
