I have always felt that there should be a law stating that the highest earner in a company could only make twenty times what the lowest worker did.

So, if you want to pay the CEO a million, you've got to be able to pay the janitor 50 grand.

The CEO would have to see to it that his company is pulling in a whole lot of money to justify his multimillion-dollar salary, and the janitors and receptionists would get a hefty increase each time the CEO did.

I know, I know. It's a pipe dream.
