I want to know whether the companies I invest in and/or buy products from are paying their CEOs exorbitant salaries, money that should be going to stockholders in dividends and to otherwise bolster the company's bottom line. This is especially important to know when a company is failing yet the top executives are raking in the millions.

There is definitely something wrong with our economic system when a top executive "earns" a salary that is thousands of times more than his average worker. It is hard to comprehend how any human being deserves hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
