Some people think CEOs make salaries that are too high compared to the average worker. Some say this can lead to problems in society. Now what if you were offered such a huge salary for your work (and let’s say it’s honest work for the sake of this argument.) Would you take it?
Or would you ask for less? We’ve heard of a few, very few, CEOs who pay themselves a dollar a year. That’s extreme on the other end and almost no one can afford that. What if you were offered a salary that was not astronomical, but put you in the upper 1%? Would you take it or ask for less?
I’m thinking I would take it and use the “excess” to give to charities. I’d love to give to programs that retrain workers. That seems ethical to me. Also my taxes would support a lot of government services helping a lot of people. Giving money to fight disease and/or find a cure for a disease is a very good thing also.
Being in the upper 1% is sometimes derided, but the upper .01% is way beyond my comprehension.
So would you like to get a high salary or would you ask for less?
