I’m a conservative republican and I think this is a fairly good idea. CEO’s salaries compared to their average workers have sky rocketed up to hundreds of times more. Meanwhile the workforce has had a very small wage increase over that time. I don’t see this as much as a punishment but as a chance to revert our system back some to what the normal balance is. Failing companies that their CEO’s still make 100 times more than the average worker don’t really deserve it. Yahoo is a perfect example.
