    what does it matter where it came from if they earned it?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I used the same base salary for both, $43,000. for bachelors and $53,000. for masters degrees.

    Let's see if you have the guts to answer the question or admit that you don't know the answer. Which is it?

    Next time, it would be really great if your post had something to do with the quote that preceded it.

They chose not to allow unions, good for them. Based upon exchanges we have had I can see why you will probably need a union when you get out of school. I never even considered joining a company with a union and preferred to generate my own paycheck, benefits, and pay raises.

    I really don't care what a CEO makes, what any liberal here makes, or even what you are going to make. Life is about choices, choose wisely and unions won't even be an issue.
    That didn't answer anything. You basically just said, "I am right, you are wrong. Shut up."

    What makes one person in a company worth 2100 times another? How much would the CEO be making if it was not for the cashiers, stock boys, greeters, janitors, etc?

    Thank you, finally an honest answer, and the answer to yours most of it comes from private sector employees that constitute most of the work force who get their money as pay for selling products or services to other members of the public. Maybe you ought to take a finance and economic course.

    again, what does it matter? they perform a service, they are compensated for performing that service, hence, the term they 'EARN' the money they get...you are just pissed because they are unionized, that is what this is about, not about who pays them, at least quit being dishonest and admit this is your endgame.

    If I feel I am ripped off by a company I don't buy from them thus don't create any revenue that is used to pay CEO's. No such luck paying the Federal or State governments
