I strongly support the proposed regulation requiring the publication of the ratio of CEO pay to the pay of the Median worker of the Corporation. We are currently in a situation where Corporations are working to take every possible right or organizing away from Labor and reduce the compensation of Middle Class Workers while continuing to enrich the CEO's and investors. The best way to make our Nation and our Economy stronger is to make Work worthwhile. As far back as the days of Henry Ford, Ford realized that the best way for his business to succeed was to pay his workers enough that they could buy the products that they built.

Today's CEO's have never worked and have forgotten the value of labor. They think that sitting in the corporate HQ is a more valuable contribution to their corporation than the efforts of the people who make the products that their corporation is known for. It is time that the pay of these CEO's is made known to the people who are working for the corporation and to the investors who are considering placing their investments in that corporation.
