In Japanese corporations, the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) is paid an average of 17 times as much as the common workers. In America, the average CEO gets 100 times as much as the workers. During difficult financial times, in companies that have to lay off 100 workers, perhaps they should fire the boss instead. I’m sure the 100 workers produce more profit and I think if they pooled their thoughts, they could run things at least 100 times better than the average American CEO. In fact, one good worker from the trenches might do a better job of decision-making, and he might be quite happy with a salary of only two or three times as much as he was getting.
