According to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), "CEO compensation has grown 940% since 1978 Typical worker compensation has risen only 12% during that time" in the article,https://www.epi.org/publication/ceo-compensation-2018/, "CEOs are getting more because of their power to set pay, not because they are increasing productivity or possess specific, high-demand skills." (Evidently, I can't press enter for a new paragraph- therefore edits now). I think that CEOs and their boards awarding such high, excessive compensation is causing many problems with wealth distribution, as well as devaluing the actual work of many employees. Why is it that we seem to think that CEOs deserve such high compensation, as well as musicians, actors and sports figures? Are their jobs more important than being the President of the United States? I do not believe so, even with the certain presidents in office. Still, I and much of the world expect far more from our president and other world leaders, yet, we do not seem to have difficulties keeping the President's pay down considerably lower than many CEOs and other executives within a business. Currently, it seems that the wealthiest both don't pay their fair share of taxes, in part because Congress helps them to escape taxes. They also can afford talented lawyers to help hide finances. I doubt all high paying business officials all do this, but I expect far more do than do not, IMHO. For those who say taxes are illegal, then please stop using the roads, the hospitals, the police forces, the fire brigades, stop depending on the military for your safety. Taxes are needed to provide services which most of a civilized society believes is in the best interest of all of society. It seems as if many have forgotten how so many have become so rich, by taking advantage of those working for them. Taxes under Kennedy were around 90% for the top tax bracket. Already, the government has raised how much one can pass on to their heirs, which is more than sufficient for those who did nothing more than to be born into a wealthy family. If you play the game Monopoly, you learn one person will eventually have ALL the wealth. I was very impressed with Ted Turner when he had an estimated worth of 3 billion dollars. He gave away a million, paraphrasing, 'I don't see the difference to my lifestyle whether I have 2 billion or 3 billion'. I expect that most people could live more than an extremely comfortable lifestyle with just 50 million. Do people really need more money just to say they have it? Is there not a point where the average rich person has all they really can possibly use within their lifetime? We need to tax these outrageous salaries at higher rates, much higher rates!
