In response to MattyScornD's comment:
I see a lot of people asking if the lowly "working man" janitor is even worth a "living wage" (CLC says he isn't.)...
...but relatively few asking whether the CEO is worth their salary/benefits/golden parachutes.
I would wager that the work put in by the janitor is much closer on average to their pay scale than that of the CEO.
Either way, let the boards/shareholders pay the CEO what they want...as long as the peons get their workman's wages with reasonably affordable health insurance and two weeks' vacation.
Let 's try it one more time, to see if it sinks into the liberal skull.
CEOs in the private sector get fired if they are overpaid...their tenure is brief and based on results. End of story.
CEOs are but a few...janitors, there are thousands of these positions. Imposing a "living wage" will result in fewer of these positions, no question.
Liberals are typically snotty and condescending toward a "janitor"."peon".....first of all, many who start in the cleaning profession just need a chance to show what they can do, and can rise in the ranks...or use the position as a stepping stone to another profession. Or a second job to help their family. These arent "janitors" , they are people who want a chance to show what they can do...they dont need a condescending notion that they are failures and must be paid a "living wage" from liberals, for a lifetime position, without earning it.
Liberals by imposing a so-called "living wage" limit the number of these positions ! Thereby limiting opportunities for those willing and able to be self reliant, and who want to earn their keep.
Living wage for janitors will hurt janitors : more part time positions, and more automation, which wil be more efficient than overpaying janitors.
That's funny (and hypocritical) coming from the guy who would firmly put the janitor in the "47%" and "taker" categories.
Your ratio of a few CEOs to many janitors only points to the massive amounts of s**t those few executives produce that needs to be cleaned up. Because, rest assured, if the CEO indeed "fails", many more lower-wage workers will also lose their jobs.
The recession is hard proof of that.
Way to pretend you care about the little guy though...someone may believe you, some day.
