Have you ever KNOWN a CEO of a really large company? Probably not making enough given the hours they work, the problems they have to handle and the snide, vicious envy they get from people like you.
The stockholders dividends? Duh, they have invested THEIR money in that company to make it go. Surely you don't think that the people that make it happen deserve a healthy dividend on their investment?
fyi: The majority of stockholder are retirees that are vested through their pension plans...or individuallly. Not millionaiers. Don't know much about business, do you? No surprise.

You have touched on a very significant cause of the problems that we face, too many people value money more than labor.

<quoted text> fair enough. At least you were encrypting english that time. So we will see where its written in the executive order that ceo's have to take a loss. Less jobs. Slightly higher prices, like in the UK, would be my guess. Either way the very top will not be taking a loss. The only point I ever made..
And the point I am making is that you are too willing to accept that. That is why nothing will change.

try earning your pay in lieu of demanding it.

That CEO you bitch about negotiated the renumeration package at hire. Someone agreed and paid it.

why is a union negotiated package so wonderful, and when a single person negotiates packages equalling 25 normal people you complain and call it America's problem?

Guess you suck at negotiations, or at work....which is it?

Why don't you apply for CEO positions?

my point is that your pay is determined by your value. If you want to argue about it, you are just proving your lack of value.

He has no idea how business works.

Businessmen don't hire unskilled labor and don't keep bad employees. The stockholders deserve better use of their money.

When dividends drop...CEO's are replaced.

There's no lack of equality in this country. There is a GREAT lack of responsibility. The old mantra of 'achieving through hard work' is unheard of now. It's all 'wait until someone hands it to you.'

The problem is you and I may have different ideas what their labor is worth.
It's worth exactly what it would bring on an open market. And believe it or not, it varies from person to person as their skill and work ethic varies. This is contrary to your belief that the barely competent worker should be paid the same as a smart and hard worker, as it is in union environments.

If you are an excellent worker, you don't have to be afraid to demand what your work is worth. It's the mediocre and the lazy that have to (and SHOULD!) worry. I suspect you've done a lot of worrying.

So let's use the "McDonald's" index. Let's say everything costs 74 cents more as a result of raising the minimum wage. Where does that leave min wage earners?? Exactly where they started and it screws anybody who made more than $10.10 if they don't get a real wage gain....
More importantly, it screws those retirees on fixed incomes.

Unions got their start because the "free market" provided a clear inequity in bargaining power that was exploited by those with more of it, placing people's lives in danger.

No, they got their start because the mob bosses saw another way to make money off the working class. Ever disuss dues with a union member? They're always not so thrilled with ehat they have to pay to work.

ever notice CEO's don't belong to the Union?

Or any management for that matter. They all negotiated and earned those positions by themselves.

Unions are for those who can't negotiate on their own, or have nothing to negotiate about.

A small business owner is President of the company and CEO.

It has since reduced itself to protecting the mediocre, the barely adequate, and the stupid and riding on the backs of the industrious.

not so. The "free market"as your dumb ass defines it, had control over monetary policy... that's not a free market if the people don't have a voice.... every hear of the company store???? There never was a "free market" in the united states, ever! EVER! To say so is foolish!
