His biggest donors are unions.

I haven't seen him complaining about union bosses making more than ten times+ the people the union is helping.

I don't think a union boss making 10× the lowest paid employee is the same as a CEO making 300× the lowest paid employee.

I don't think either matter, but why is one ok and the other isn't? Is 11x the limit?

Some unions treat their members well, some don't. Some businesses treat their workers well, some don't. When unions work properly, they give their members power and a voice that they otherwise wouldn't have. But you can also have corruption in unions, just like you can have corruption in anything else.

The problem isn't that some unions can be corrupt (of course they can, they're run by humans) it's that they're propped up by the state and workers are forced to pay into them/play by their rules. A free market union wouldn't be such a bad thing at all, provided of course that it's a peaceful one.
