Let me tell u a hypothetical story:
I own a modest shop which can barely meet its expenses. By stroke of luck, I hire a bright young Manager for a a share in the profits. Now this genius in 5 years converted my small shop not only profitable, but also helped my buy 9 more shops. If the profits increase by 50 folds, what should I do…..
or reduce his profit share?
My point is the salary which an employee earns is a concern of employee, the share holders and the board only. As long as there is transparency about the remuneration and the taxes are paid in time, its no business of the government to intervene.
In case of a professional management (where the top executives are not related to the promoters) u guys tell me… would u prefer the lion’s share of the revenues go to the rich and pompous promoters who just sat back and did nothing… or to the workers and management who give their sweat for the company?
In case of promoters doubling up as CEO… I ask you a simple question is that guy better than the CEO of a public sector company which earns 10k USD pa? if he is not worth the compensation he draws… short the stocks and invest in a company which does not squanders your money… market is the best regulator for financial prudence.
Lastly, if you pay peanuts, you will only get monkeys…
