Are CEOs hundreds of times more valuable than their employees? Corporate boards seem to think so.

As far as I am concerned it is a crime the money they make

No one is worth megabucks. Heard an item last night where a baseball player, inarticulately, said he was insulted by the NY Yankees offer of 26 million for 2 years! Let's go back to a 100K salary cap for all executives.

Sorry the executive word slipped out when I should have placed a period after "all".

We so agree, John - how utterly ridiculous it has all gotten....

OK--Some men (and an very slowly increasing number of women) view the salary game as just that, a game. They are basically high stakes gamblers. Often many board members are chosen because the board members feel the same way, so there is crossover. ("I'll sit on your board if you sit on mine.")
The money is welcome, but for many each move is the step up to the next highest tier. This has been played in business of course, but has over the last few decades, extended to charities.

Hooyah! Then there are guys like the CEO of AIG who mismanaged the firm into needing TARP assistance and still walked away with millions in separation pay.

Too many at the top getting corpulent paychecks and bonuses and too few in the middle and on the front lines to actually get work done.

Noted with thanks Carrie.
230 times the amount of regular employees is ridiculous, and maybe a law should be passes to cap their wages and bonuses!

Not just the salaries but that CEO salary to workers ratio. It gets more and more out of whack. And If you look at Productivity (i.,e. what the workers do), productivty is climbing exponentially and yet pay has stagnated.
