Please do not surrender to the lobbyists and corporations that don't want the public and their investers to be aware of how exorbitantly many CEO's are paid. Whether the ratio of their pay to the median pay of their workers is 200, 500, 1,000 or more should not be hidden from the public. Even 100 is too much in my opinion --- I agree with the statement attributed to Peter Drucker in 1977 that said 50 to one was above that which most people in this country consider proper.
