Most workers understand that the guy (and sadly, it's still usually a guy) at the top of the corporate hierarchy is going to earn more than they do -- a lot more. After all, he's the one who has to pick up the pieces if the company falls apart. In some companies, however, the difference between the CEO's salary and workers' pay isn't quite as steep.
What's worse than working for a chief executive who makes millions of dollars a year? Working for that same millionaire CEO when you know it would take you 100 years -- or more -- to earn his annual salary.
