No one cared to actually answer.
An remember, that's the average CEO, not the worst.
Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), makes 2,500x what his average employee makes. What could one person do that even remotely justifies that amount of money compared to the folks actually doing the work? One of the top engineers (not even the average!) who actually designs and makes Apple products has to work months to earn the money Tim Cook makes in an hour.
I really want to know what people think justifies that.
Apple's a pretty terrible example. I'm pretty sure they'd pay 10000x to have Steve back. And he'd be worth every penny.
