No, it isn't.

From 1978 to 2018, CEO compensation grew by 1,007.5% (940.3% under the options-realized measure), far outstripping S&P stock market growth (706.7%) and the wage growth of very high earners (339.2%). In contrast, wages for the typical worker grew by just 11.9%.
Companies who employ the CEOs believe they are worth it. It is called capitalism. Why are you worried about like 20k people in a country of 330mil?

Housing: Basic human right.
You can click your heels as much as you want but you won’t land in Kansas

let me see if I can get a fact answer from you-where does your “basic human right” theory come to an end?
You feel it covers housing and does it end at food? Or clothing? Or a car? Or gas for the car? Or utilities ? Or bill payments ? Or vacation? Or pet care? Or Never?

He has no idea what a right even is. If somebody is to provide objects of comfort to a person under the guise it's a right, then somebody has to provide those objects which costs money. A right is not something that you feel deserving of at the cost to others who don't even know you.

Like health care or access to health care, those on the left are currently calling housing a “human right.” The National Economic and Social Rights Initiative (NESRI) says, “It is the government’s obligation to guarantee that everyone can exercise this right to live in security, peace, and dignity.” The book, In Defense of Housing argues against what it calls the commodification of housing, meaning the same thing: everyone is entitled to some kind of housing.

Prediction For 2030: A Government Take-Over of Rental Housing By Roger Valdez
I DON'T GET IT PEOPLE ACTUALLY MADE MORE STAYING HOME THAN WORKING AND ARE STILL ON THE VERGE OF GETTING KICKED OUT OF THEIR RENTAL HOMES?
How about the landlords? where is there relief? they still had to pay their property taxes and utilies with no money coming in.
KICK THEM OUT

Alta California, federalist.
There is nothing stopping anyone on just being a small time inventor in their home from creating something new if they have the inclination to do so. That is not present in those areas.
All it takes is a consistent income under any form of Capitalism. Have any market friendly public policy suggestions that promote and provide for the general welfare?

What can be done is simple. Incentivize people to build rental housing by providing tax breaks and incentives like subsidized construction loans.
I'm seeing this being done, but the crises are worsening severely nonetheless.

Thank you for providing a serious, though dubiously useful, suggestion however. :)
Make owning rental property attractive by reducing onerous restrictions and requirements.
For instance...?
Something like a construction loan from the government with a capital refund of say five percent for every year that you own the property.
Sounds like (more) charity for the rich; trickle down doesn't work, and the crises are NOW.
Between payments and loan reduction, the owner would be free and clear in fifteen years or so and his capital freed up for other investments.
More charity for the rich...
Positive incentives work just as well as negative ones.
Socialism for the wealthy...
Make it hard for rental owners and they will stop owning rental properties, make it easy and they will own more.
While I genuinely appreciate your seriousness, the problem isn't with making landlords more successful.

The problem is a MASSIVE affordable housing crisis with multiple waves of impending evictions and the CRIPPLING costs which will follow for ALL of society.

Making rich people richer ain't the solution.

You'd be gone in a heartbeat.
Neither of us would be (you nor I); while you're trolling above, you've also made substantive contributions to the topic.

Each family gets a plan to get them out of govt assistance. There is not a one fits all solution
Serious reply appreciated.

How do people with few resources afford housing where jobs are, and therefore housing costs the least affordable?
