This is just some ridiculous back door way to try and reimpose taxes on corporations. The unintended (or intended, this is Bernie after all) consequences of this is more unemployment and more reliance on the nanny state. Looking at it that way, I am sure that's Bernie's intention. The implication that the difference between executive pay and employee compensation causes "economic insecurity" is so intellectually dishonest it's hard to adequately express. Let's just call it a lie.
