Default Re: Business Tax Based on Comparison of Top Executive's Pay to Employees’ Pay

I'm not special. Contrary to public opinion, it is how many, if not most, businesses operate and thrive. Companies, like GM, who don't,,,, get taxpayer funded bailouts from the Gubmit.
I run my business like you. I have always taken a modest salary, and left the rest in our company money market, from which we paid bonuses and used as working capital. If I had taken everything out of the business and pretended that I was some wealthy upper crust type, I would have went bankrupt during that last recession. I have taken disbursements, but only in good times, and only after bonuses were given to my great employees.
