Laws can't mandate this stuff, but it constantly encourages/discourages behavior. Over the past 30 years, it hasn't been doing a very good job, IMHO, in keeping the middle class middle, so to speak, which is a systemic problem.
I don't understand. Nobody is being abused. No need for the government to stick their nose in.
If paying these dudes high salaries were a colossally bad decision, these companies would pay for it in the competitive environment.
