I think your thread should be stated Executives as opposed to Employees. Given that context.
I think it is a rational first step, should a Large concern recieve Govt. Funds to stay in business those type Rules of the road are appropriate until the funds are repaid.
There is a problem with the current directive, that being those whom have already recieved funding are exempt. The executive order could not be made retro active. Most of the known Big fish are off the hook.
I believe that something shoul be done to address the entire executive pay structure throughout all business. Compared to employees, the executive pay since the 80's has outpaced them nearly 400 to 1 annually. Prior times 40 to 1was the norm. Greed has infiltrated all levels of all government and business. Just my opinion.
