In a utopian world where the guy who empties the trash bins is just as important as a Fortune 500 CEO (and paid accordingly)....who would choose the pressure cooker of being the CEO if you could just mindlessly put in your 40 hours a week and go home with the same money?

I'm not saying that all CEO salaries are justified when the average worker is barely making a living wage, but the truth is that good CEO's are hard to come by (and sought after) and the job isn't nearly as cushy as everyone seems to believe. If a company fails under their watch (regardless who's fault it is) and they get canned....they are unlikely to get another comparable position, and are likely to be near retirement age anyway.
