    And he doesn't even do anything. CEOs just attend BS "meetings" all the time.

    Walking Tall by Walking All Over People

    A business is a team, not a one-man show. Treated like office furniture, the employees get demoralized, but then get criticized for not putting much effort into their work.

    So you're posting an article from RT taking a swipe at American industrialist and the unfair position treatment of the proletariat.
    Not what you would expect from a US Trump supporter.
    Hmmmm ?

    You are free to negotiate your salary the same as he is. He is just better at it than you.

    What actual decisions does that CEO make each day? He will sit in a meeting bitch about profits, tell the staff to cut 10% out of their budget then get a bonus from the board for good stock holder dividends. Other than that he will go to a Trump style golf course and spend more in a day than an employee makes in a month.

    all sorts of strategic, tactical and operational decisions
    Just like regular employees CEO's can and do get replaced if their employers(the board) think someone else get do a better job for less money. All you have to do is convince Walmart's shareholders that you could a better job for less money than current CEO, Doug McMillon .

    Off the People, Buy the People, Fork the People

    Plute Supremacy works for Low-IQ King Ape economic bullies. Why do you think the "education" the rulers impose on us turns us into wusses?

    Yes, It's a free market. He didn't do anything unethical to get a high salary. The workers are free to quit if they don't like their salary.

    In your opinion, how much should the CEO of one of the largest companies in the world, employing 2 plus million be paid?

    Market?? The market has nothing to do with this. CEOs determine their own salaries. THINK
