    Of course they aren't worth the money, but what does that have to do with it?

    Employee pay has been stagnant for years, benefits are disappearing all the time; but executive pay and bonuses continues to grow without regard to the true value of the role.

    Would a company continue to function without a CEO? Of course...

    Could the company continue to function without the employees, middle management and senior management? Hell no...

    So what? As long as people are under the delusion of the company having the high cards this will continue to be the case.
