I don't usually expect philosophy from the San Francisco Chronicle, but on today's sfgate.com I saw a column with the arresting title: No Offense, but You Don't Deserve Your Salary.
Kind of catches your eye, doesn't it?
I strongly recommend the piece. I've actually considered writing something on this subject, spurred by disgust at the absurd salaries paid to CEOs and baseball players, but the columnist, Chris Colin, has really said it all much better than I could.
The reader comments are fairly interesting, too.
