exaggerate much?

The US national working wage is roughly 45 K a year. 5000 X is 225 M a year. How many people do you think make 225 M PER YEAR.

CEO pay should be related to how much value they add to shareholder weath. I don't care if they get paid $1 B a year if they earn it because as a shareholder I reap large gains. I don't care if it's 10,000 times the average worker pay. The relative measure between the two is a useless statistic that people use to suit their commi "everyone needs paid more" crap.

Go start a business and tell me how much you think you need paid compared to the workers you hire.
