This is a trend in America that MUST stop. Forget about raising corporate tax rates that will just be passed along to customers; how can we get a handle on executive comp?
Once you reach the CEO level, it is no longer about $: what are the projects you tackle, what is your day like, what is the culture you can create; ends are meeting and your family wants for nothing. The argument that companies will not attract the best is BS.
This money can be used to keep jobs here, lower costs to customers, increase dividends paid to shareholders, improving employee benefits, etc.
But what can be done?
