right, because without unions right now, we will all be getting paid a dollar a day....
no, what i wrote is correct. the market decided their pays, not a collective bargaining or however they strong armed their pay, where the market has no say neither does the public with their taxes. i don't know why you want to bring in a ceo argument, as far as i know, public company ceos usually get paid a competitive salary if not better than their comparative private sector ceo's. are you saying those public employees should be paid as much as their ceo?
No, what I was arguing is why is it wrong for employees to get the best deal they can?
People aren't under the illusion of getting million dollar salaries, doesn't mean there's any harm in asking!
