I certainly support rules requiring companies to disclose the ratio between their CEO's pay and their median worker's pay.

I think it is only fair and right that investors, customers, and the general public are able to discover situations where CEOs are being paid ridiculous sums.

Many investors, and consumers care about the ethical values of companies they deal with.
