How much does the Evil CEO of, let's say, General Mills make? A million? A couple of million?<quoted text>No worker ever decided to move the over 30,000 American factories that have closed to China. It was the millionaire and billionaire CEOs that made that call. Ever since Reagan came up with the Piss Down Economics the CEO average pay has gone from 23 times that of the worker to almost 400 times more today.
Of the over 21 million Corporations in the US only 6 million of them have any employees. Most are just setup as a tax haven. Of all the small businesses in the US only 11% of the owners make over $250K per year. It is the rich bankers, Wall St. hedge fund gamblers, and the top CEOs that destroyed America.
How much does Dirkowitz of the Dallas Mavericks make?
The Evil CEO is hired by the board of directors of the Evil Corporation to perform a very demanding function. You probably don't have a clue what a CEO does, but it's more than you think.
The pay for the CEO is determined by the board as well. They decide how much the guy is worth, i. e. how much money he will make the corporation. If he fails to make the corporation a lot of money, he gets fired.
Dirkowitz performs a specific function and is paid by the management of the Mavericks based upon how many games he can win for the team. If he fails to win, he gets fired.
Get the analogy, leftie? Why don't you have a problem with Dirkowitz's pay?
And as a stockholder, I want the Evil Corporation to make as much money as possible and increase my stock share's value. If it means moving production to China, so be it. If American workers can't compete, that's too freakin' bad. Welcome to the modern world. Get off your butts and stop whining.
