Yes, I agree that the separation of wealth is ever growing between the elites and poor. I kind of have to even acknowledge that the term "middle
class" is becoming more and more useless... we are either rich or poor.
I do hope to see laws made to limit the amount that CEO's can earn, but only do to the fact that it is obvious that the mass of employees turn their
back to the fact that money is being withheld from them to fatten the pockets of CEO's. It is our choice to work for these companies that set wage
scales among employees and/or management.
Trader Joe's for instance mandates in their practices that no employee of the company, CEO included, can earn no more than 19 times the starting
salary. It is up to us as good employees, I believe, to think of these things when we start the processes of getting employment. I would bet that
maybe 1% of all people consider these issues when they choose to devote 1/3 or more of their lives to earn money for the chosen company. It never
seems to settle in as to the fact that we contribute to allowing it, rather than not participating in the lop-sided scheme to begin with. I relate
picking our employment much the same as I do voting... it really falls on the masses in the end to do the right thing.
With that said, 1% of people thinking as I stated here, if that's even an accurate percentage, are not enough of a percentage to make compensation an
even playing field. This all equates to the obvious need for law(s) to correct the obvious deceit.
