In the USA the CEO's are averaging 475:1 plus or minus a little depending on whos study you read. That means the CEO is making 475 times more than the workers. Yet time after time we hear how labor costs are driving the prices up. Especially when they can blame a UNION for it they really lay it on thick. It is the CEO's and other executives that are sucking the blood out of the American companies. Oh and Your favorite store, "Walmart," is right up in the top 5.

Yes...and many times we would not have those companies if it weren't for the executives that run it. Certainly many are paid exorbitant amounts but you are speaking as if they didn't earn the place they have at the top. They are at the top for a reason.

You must be at the top or the family member of one at the top. The last study says 475 : 1 ratio. So you are trying to say that they EARN 475 times the pay of the people who actually do the work. IS THAT RIGHT? If so the next time you call for a Pizza and it gets delivered to your house you would not mind paying $487 which would cover the $12 for the Pizza and the $475 for the one hour to the CEO of the company.

No. What I am saying is that you continue to say they dont work. For what they have. They do, should they get paid exorbitant amounts, that is not for me to say,should they be taxed more certainly. You are equating work with physical labor when they are not always the same

I am fully aware of that. So how much do you pay for making a decision, and then going to a long lunch and a round of golf, at the expense of the company? Certainly not 475 times that of the worker. At that rate they are ratping the company funds and should be shot.

ratping should be RAPING
