Do you believe someone should be compensated according to the amount of work he or she produces? For example. Wal-Mart's CEO earns about 1,167 times what his average employee earns. Does that seem fair or unfair? I'll post my response once a few of you reply. --- By socialist logic, Wal-Mart's CEO is vastly underpaid. See, they believe someone should be directly compensated based on their labor. Any more, and they're unfairly exploiting others. Wal-Mart's CEO is responsible for employing 2.1 million people. So in reality, he should be earning 2.1 million times what the average worker earns, not 1,167.
