"Yeah, let's take the salaries of those nasty CEOs and give 'em to workers!"

Found this here.  (edited a bit)
In 2012 the CEO of Walmart made $20.7 million. Walmart has about 2 million employees (as far as I can tell this is just in the U.S. stores).  So if you were to confiscate the CEO’s entire pay and divide it among the employees they’d each get $10.35 more per year, or less than 20 cents per week.  That's half a cent per hour for a full time employee.

Now, look at a pay stub and see how much the various governments steal from your paycheck. Now tell me: who's the real parasite?
Let me note that I recognize that not all government employees are lazy or corrupt.  I spent ten years as an Air Force pilot and those guys seemed both honest and hard-working.  But it does seem to me that the institution of government itself has been corrupted by laws passed by corrupt politicians seeking to make government something the Founders never intended.
