senator_webb.jpgCongratulations to one of the only politicians I’ve heard dare talk about the growing disparity between the pay of CEOs and the regular working gal and guy. In the Democratic response last night to President Bush’s State of the Union address, Virginia SEn. James Webb had the guts to point out how it take the average worker more than a year to make what a CEO and the like make in one day.

It hasn’t always been like this. While Corporate bigwigs have always made more than the rank and file, the chasm today between the take home pay of bosses and their underlings is bigger than ever in our history.

We need to applaud Webb for saying it in prime time no matter what, if anything, comes from it.
