      At least the opportunity is there for those that can't type sentences which need to be read more than once to figure out what was intended to be said. (now I wonder if my sntence makes sense.)

                What is the maximum amount someone should be allowed to earn per year either through wages, investing, or lottery payouts? Clearly there is a maximum where the earnings get to be excessive and should be caped.

                  Coming from you John, that's got to be a trick question.

                      Not a trick question. Just something that I wonder about when the topic of excessive pay for executives, sports figures, Hollywood types, and other high earners is discussed. Implied in the comment is that there is some maximum amount of pay that beyond which is considered excessive. I always wonder what that point is. And what should be done with the excessive excess pay?

                        Thanks. I just got my Wal-Mart manager to help me out:

                        The average full-time Wal-Mart employee is paid about $17,000/year. The companies health plan covers less than half of its workers.

                        Last year Scott Lee Jr., Wal-Mart's Chief Executive, was paid $17.5 million.

                          With the excellent health care policy Wal-Mart will let me contribute my extra income to, I'd say we'll live long. Put in your own career-span estimates.

                            people should be paid what they're worth. (not gonna happen but hey, here's hoping)

                            all those "overpaid" sports figures make that amount back *easily* for their teams/companies that they endorce. it takes essentially no education to work full time at wal-mart. yes i feel sorry for those who have to work that job, especially if it's one of the larger employers in the area, but that CEO probably has large amounts (MBA at least) of education and lots of fancy leadership skills and he's responsible for the leadership of a multi-national, multi- billion corporation. as far as ceos goes $17.5 million isn't that much. especially for leading a company as large and complex as wal-mart.


                            and this is coming from a 24 year old who works for $7/hr in a burrito shop and has 5 years of college education and a marketing degree who can't get a "real" job.

                              John: Not at all. How could they cap?

                              What is especially cool is that now that the major auto makers have been downgraded by Wall Street, the CEOs should be able to break their agreements to pay health and retirement benefits to their employees and retirees.

                              The courts just ruled that an airline could do that. So it's legal.

                              Employees who were promised a pension from the company will have to live on Social Security---errr, Social Security?

                              Anyway, if I work hard as a Wal-Mart cashier, I could be CEO someday. It's not a caste system.

                              How many CEOs of Fortune 500 companies started out as line workers? It's the American Dream!
