I would suggest the worth of a person's work is what somebody is willing to pay them to do the work. It has nothing to do with your opinion on the value of their work. If somebody is getting paid 10 or 20 million per year you can bet it's because they bring in at least 10 times that in revenue. When the government starts playing around you get Leman losing 4 billion and paying out hundreds of millions in bonuses because the government covered the profits plus some. That's your money going to over pay those under performing executives.
