    For CEOs of Fortune 500 companies about 80% of their total compensation is equity based and does not cost the company any cash. So spreading around the compensation of the senior executives to the rank and file doesn't do much unless we want to give the McD workers stock options, which vest over four years and may be worth a lot or nothing, instead of cash.

    Senior executive compensation is outrageous but when you look at just the payments made in cash they represent a fraction of 1% of the total expenses for Fortune 500 companies.
