Switzerland Shows U.S. How to Handle CEOs

The Swiss are voting on limiting executive pay to no more than 12 times the lowest salary in the company, and on creating  a guaranteed basic income of $2,800 per month for every adult.  That's about $16 per hour for a full-time worker, but it's guaranteed even for those who can't find work.

You know what country can afford such a measure even more easily, given its vast supplies of wealth? The United States of America. Tell Congress and the President now!
