Are CEO's paid too much?

I can't believe some companies underpay their workers so the CEO's of companies get paid more money. The underpaid worker who probably busts a gut for an average pay deserves a pay rise rather than the CEO who probably swings on a chair inside the office. I understand that it's not always smooth sailing for CEO's and it's not as easy what everyone thinks it is, but do you reckon it's easy on the underpaid worker. An example is my friend who works for ANZ as a administrative clerk. He got underpaid nearly half his hourly rate because ANZ didn't have enough money to pay the CEO his royalties, mind you ANZ records millions, maybe even billion dollar profits a year. So he complained to the union who resolved the issue, after other reports raised with similar circumstances occurred. My friend is back to his normal hourly rate now. Overall are CEO's of campaniles getting paid to much and making it unfair for other workers?

In my views, all employees must be paid equal, and rise must be on hardwork and experience. CEO can be paid royalty, but only if real workforce is paid better. If workforce is paid low, then CEO must also get low payment triple or quadruple salary than worker is enough.

@IlijaMarkovski Employees keep a company working, CEO is also a paid employee who is on top post. It is duty of CEO to keep company in best, this cannot be done if Employees are paid low. A company if cannot pay their employees properly, then it should share their burden and give their family proper and free Education, Health, transport and Home to live with proper paid holidays.

@SIMPLYD Unfortunately the union investigated and the company put him back on his normal hourly rate, but didn't get compensated for the unfair rate he got paid before the union knew. Do you know any people who have been underpaid for any reason?
