I think its fine if my CEO gets paid much more than I do, assuming the value that s/he adds to the firm is equitable. If the firm's shareholders believe that the CEO is doing a good job, and have approved the salary, then what's the problem?

I personally agree, but I think there needs to be a legal framework ensuring that it's really the shareholders who decide (not the board of directors/compensation committee, often consisting of former executive managers).

Some companies keep their executive pay practices secret and don't even let shareholders know about it: http://fortune.com/2014/05/28/what-wal-mart-prefers-to-keep-secret/

I agree that transparency is key here. If a company, like Wal-Mart, is publicly traded, there should be rules in place that force them to make this information public. It baffles me that the exchanges don't have something like this in place already.
