  •  The issue is where the individual stands (6+ / 0-)

    In the hierarchy of exploitation.  

    Signing an employment agreement to be CEO or other top level position can apply to a member of the owner class who enjoys the work or to an aspiring member of that class.  Either way, as owners or highly paid aspirants, their purpose is to maximize profit with little consideration of the fate of working people.

    Next layer down are non-owners who, whatever their aspirations, make their money using their education and professional qualifications assisting the owners in their exploitation, for example corporate lawyers and accountants.  They are the real middle class.

    You and the CEO may both sign an employment agreement, but you make your living at the mercy of his class, as do we all.

    That's the difference.  Unless he's an extravagant fool, the only wound he suffers when he's fired is to his ego.  

    Cutting Social Security will end my support for the Democratic Party.
