MBK: How about not paying their CEOs millions of dollars to...

What exactly DO CEOs do?

I mean for a company like McDonalds.  You are pretty much one of the most recognizable symbols in the world.  Your food is sold all over the place.  You introduce a new burger every year.

What the fark does a CEO do that requires millions of dollars?


Sit on boards that vote on CEO pay?

puffy999: Great Janitor: I don't know where you got this incredibly wrong idea that minimum wage jobs are the only things left because that's simply not true, especially when the median income in the United States is just over $44,000.

First, that's an old number. Second, that's median HOUSEHOLD income; you do know what a household is, don't you? Third, if these household incomes are based on people who have jobs, how would that have to do with the open positions "left" on the market?

Anyway, YMMV for everyone in every region, but a job that earns you twice as much in another part of the country will almost always start out at, or near, minimum wage where I reside.


I don't think anyone who uses that initial argument knows what household income means.

ThatDarkFellow: Exactly. Move somewhere less expensive.


Leela: "Hey Fry, why was New York so big?"

Fry: "Beats me, no one lives there, it's too expensive".
