Quantcast

I honestly think the goverment should put a cap on how much profit a company can make without sharing the difference with the employees. That is before bonuses

I just think it is ridiculous how much money these corporations make but yet their employees make it from pay day to pay day. I think 40% is a fair margin and the rest should have to be split among employees

    say what?
    If the employees would buy stock in the company they could get some of the profit or suffer some of the loss. If they want 60% of the profit they should own 60% of the company. I honestly don't believe in theft.

    Companies do just that with SHAREHOLDERS ..... those who have risked their own funds to invest in the company and give the employees a place to work ,..... as in J-O-B.

    Employees are free to purchase stock in the company (in most cases) and roll the dice along with the others.

    Conservative..... and why are you afraid of the truth?
    Don't employees get paid for their time and if they stand out above others, get a promotion and raise?

    Ok so you must then be willing to pay the difference out of your pay of course if they make less than 40% profit right? You know if they make no profit then you will be happy to work for no pay right?

    Nope and 40% is a substantial profit and that is usually after they give each other million pluse bonuses. Why should the average American make minimum wage or slighly above so someone else can profit millions

    The average American has a choice to accept the wages being paid or not to. If you aren't willing to pay if they don't make a profit then I can see no reason why you should be paid beyond your agreed upon wage when they do make a profit.

    Aside from Apple Computer, can you name a company with a 40% profit.
  • william... Ron the... 2012/06/30 00:47:35

    so then you shouldn't have a problem with a 40% cap. For your information though if you figure their profit margin before these outrageous bonuses it would be well over 40% and they would even have to pay their share of taxes....man wouldn't that be unfair

    Why are you bothered by how much money somebody else earns?
    I'm also waiting for you to identify any company with a 40% net profit.

    Sorry I'm sure I said there should be a 40% cap before bonuses and and share the rest with the ones who actually made the money. I'm not here to debate with you who made what. I will say though that there is alot more made than what is reported and that corporate over pays itself to the extreme to keep the profit margin down even though all the money still goes in their pockets it is just away round paying the taxes they owe

    Also many will show operating at a loss after paying theirselves several million a year and actually get a tax rebate and if you are not aware of these methods you must have your head in the sand

    So still just generalities but not a single example... You apparently have no idea about any company and it's profits - before or after bonuses. You're just spouting wind you've heard others, who are equally misinformed, spout with abandon.

    You obviously have some specific company in mind. Why not just say which company it is that makes over 40% profit before bonuses that you're so bothered by?

    No, you do not have the right to tell other people how productive their business is allowed to be.

    No but I think if we came together we could have a right to stop a few people from raping the rest of us

    Are you claiming that you are unable to choose to not do business with people that are raping you?

    I personally can and do but there are many who don't have tht option for the need of income and I am saying that corporate america rapes these people and are proud of it

    Some are more or less. They have to settle for what ever they can get and what they get is taken advantage of.
