I generally agree with you but Adams's case is different, IMO, because he works for a public university. Taxpayers have an interest in ensuring that government employers aren't overpaying some employees by underpaying other employees. In Adams's case, UNCW was apparently allowing tenured professors to live the high life, e.g. by not requiring them to teach much, and making up for it by requiring assistant professor Adams (and others, probably) to teach more. If the state government has policies governing salaries, etc., they must be followed.
The underlying sentiment on the left is that the rich are evil and should be punished. No matter how bad a policy is for all or a majority of Americans, the left will support it if they think it dishes out some of this punishment. It's economic vandalism.
