    majority" of CEO compensation is not restricted stock or stock options.  They receive a tremendous amount of cash.  And regardless of whether it's a cash outlay, it's something of value that impacts the bottom line of the company and therefore the ability of the company to pay their other employees more.

    And it's not only the CEO's who are overpaid, so whether they're only stealing 1% of the hourly workers' pay for that one person is irrelevant.  Add up all that's stolen from the hourly workers to pay the overpaid top management, and the hourly could, in nearly every case, be paid a fair wage for the production.
