What do you mean by "front liners." And what would be your response to critics that say "CEO's work hard to get where they are...they arent all
wall street criminals. A person works hard for what they earn and should be up to them how they spend it. Its raising a tax with FALSE
REPRESENTATION!! Its government taking more than they already do." Thank You.
I like to use the big hotel chains as an example (having had experience as a supervisor for the housekeeping department) --
if every housekeeper called in sick, the place would have to shut down.
Those housekeepers bust their butts, toe the line, do the menial labor - if they weren't there, who would clean those 720 rooms in time for the
full-house turnover of guests?
Like when one convention leaves and another is checking in the same day.....
the hotel would have to lock its doors.
The CEO sits in a distant city micro-managing spread sheets, and pays no attention to the situation of the housekeepers -
that CEO does NOT deserve 500x more money than the housekeepers.
Does that answer your question?
The biggest problem, in my opinion, is that the employees don't get to be "stake-holders". They won't get a "bonus" at the end of the year for their
fast, thorough WORK. But the "shareholders" expect a dividend.
Front-liners - the people who deal with the public, do the day to day grind, show up for their shifts, and keep things running smoothly.
CEOs - suits who sit far away counting beans. If the CEO dropped dead of a morning, the hotel would continue to operate JUST FINE. If the
housekeepers were all suddenly gone, the hotel would come to a screeching halt.
