CEO's & Income Inequality

Given the lovely nature of all the CEO's on your program (The Bottom Line), why do they accept income inequality in their respective organisations?

They are supposed to be change-makers, cultivators of innovation, leaders; so why do they not lead on this?

The standard argument that their organisation wouldn't attract the required talent doesn't wash given that they are the supposed talent.

Do they believe they contribute so much more than others?

Could it be that the acceptance of inequality (and greater income for managers) by consecutive CEOs (and other managers) leads to patterns of ever greater inequality? Why do they not take the lead and reduce this inequality across the board and, most especially, for themselves?
