An idea worth spreading
We need to tie maximum corporate compensation to minimum corporate compensation. In addition to minimum wage, the most a CEO or highly compensated person in a corporation can make is no more than 50X the least well compensated employee. This includes benefits. As part of this push, employers should be required to cover health care for all employees (until we get one payer healthcare) vs. only full time employees, reducing the incentive to drop employees to part time to avoid compensation costs.
