Unions have, for years, been critical of CEO salaries (in some cases, rightly so). Â They’ve gotten the State to enact laws to enable unions’ pressure tactics to have a say on pay. What’s their end game?
Well, for clues on this, one only needs to look north to Canada where the SEIU is pushing to put a cap on CEO pay:
The nursing head of a provincial union is calling for a cap on hospital CEO salaries, following the publication of public sector salaries over $100,000 in the so-called “sunshine list.”
Carol McDowell, president of the Nursing Division of the Service Employees International Union SEIU, said provincial appeals for restraint have been ignored and CEO salaries need to be reined in.
“The time for patience is over,” McDowell said. “We need to cap hospital CEO pay now.”
A two-year pay freeze is in place across the province, meaning no executive salaries will increase until, at least, after next March, Davies said.
When unions push to limit pay, they are, also pushing to limit success. And, when the State moves to do the same, there is little incentive for people to aspire to better their lives or their society.
Welcome to SEIU’s totalitarian vision for the future.
