Except it's not just the CEO, and it certainly isn't just 20 million. The CEO of Walmart makes well into the hundreds of millions, with extra profit being widely available, and that doesn't include the other officers, who each have multi-million dollar salaries, while the working man has to get welfare just to survive. There's money there to run the company and pay your people. It's all about being willing to give it up. I'm not saying that the CEO should be poor either, but paying a living wage should come first, then personal gain.
People who live in poverty in America spend roughly 40% of their income (including welfare benefits) on luxuries.
The people who work for the company are engaged in a voluntary transaction. Part of the reason why CEOs make so much money is because Corporations aren't free market entities. A corporation is a legal entity. In other words a Corporation is a Government authorized organization. They have privileges that normal people don't have, and they often work very closely with Government.
You can force companies to pay a "living wage" but that will only work for a short time as doing so will shift a bunch of variables such as inflation. In the long term you wreck the economy and create even more hardship and income inequality. You can have the Government pay everybody some sort of welfare "living wage" but then you have to raise taxes or borrow/print money. Which also means wrecking the economy in the long run.
The only way growth and progress happens is through voluntary transactions.
You have real life proof that forcing companies to pay a living wage doesn't create the massive inflation you people love to claim it'd cause, but sure that'd hurt your narrative so lets ignore it.
Look outside your borders for once.
What? Like the Nordic countries who are slowly going bankrupt and rolling back on Socialist policy because of it? And who in some ways have more of a free market than the US?
borders for once. And look ahead instead of pretending that because everything is good in the moment that it's going to stay that way forever. Socialism doesn't work in the long run.
What they should do is take away the wages of the lowest workers. It's not earned income anyway since it's not skilled labor.
YOU HAVIN A LAUGH?
It's the truth though. It's not earned if you are being paid to show up like at a wal-mart job.

More exposure to the sun, Sunburns can be cancer inducing so the albinos and whaterver skin colour mutations they might have developed were more likely to develop skin cancer, and thus less successful.
In Europe a lighter skin meant a higher chance of sun burn but there wasn't that much sun which usually meant people with lighter skin absorbed more vitamin D and did better then darker skin.
