Is it possible that part of the reason wages in government jobs went up following the best of...

...economic times, and private pay remained fairly stagnant is because those good economic times created added revenue for the government which was passed to to regular employees in the form of wages, and that conversely speaking, during those same economic prosperous times, companies paid THEIR increased revenues to their TOP ranks and shareholders and did not pass them on to the employees? Just a curious capitalist who wonders if we may be looking at this a bit wrong. If we are to get mad at the govt for being paid more than the avg guy, why AREN'T we talking about the $40M/yr CEOs too?
