49. No, they are NOT unsustainably high
You're telling me that an executive "earning" a million-dollar salary is more sustainable than a bunch of factory workers getting a living wage? Bushwah! If they were unsustainable the company would go under...and that is not the case. The current situation is that the jobs are going over-seas DESPITE earning a profit due to the removal of tariffs, slave labor and weak unions.

Your salary is predicated on the amount of power you hold on the negotiating table, not the wealth you produce for the company. The removal of tariffs have weakened the negotiating power of workers and manufacturers, to the detriment of the rest of the economy.
