I have a question.
More than 50% of employees work for small businesses. That is companies with less than 500 employees.
Add to that government jobs (state and federal). These employers don't usually have multimillion dollar ceo's. That leaves a small amount of corporate jobs.
So my question is,
How does a CEO salary effect the pay of people that don't work for the big corporations?
I make about twice as much as my employees do. Is that to much?

The average CEO in the U.S. makes $178,400. Not that impressive eh? But if you cherry pick only CEO's of the top 200 companies then their pay average jumps to $10 million. But it's only 200 people. How many different actors earned over 10 million last year? How many professional sports players earned over 10 million? I bet way more than 200. Yet everyone seems to think CEO's are greedily stealing the wages of the average working man. It's just not true.

I will say this: the top athletes make millions of dollars every year. Do you really think the top businessmen
are not going to make the big bucks, too?
