I have come to the point of view that the American worker needs to take care of himself / herself. I have been self-employed my entire life & I have had success and failure (DL for example). When I fail, I blame myself and move on. When I have success, I try not to spend it all at once :lol:!Mike L said:I would like to know both sides of the story. As everyone knows ,every large company in the USA has jumped on the bandwagon to downsize /restructure, how ever you want to put it. In the process of all of this is the American worker. He/she is getting it broke off. IMO it seems that Corporate America isnt happy just making a profit. They want to make " Huge" profits. And could care less how they achieve it. And they are also trying to take away retirement benifits from workers who have woked for there respective company's all of there lives.
I.E. Delta Airlines, Delphi. I will agree ! To a point that the american wages at some corporations had goten out of hand, but I can see why also. Hey ! Let us share a piece of the pie per say. So I really would like to hear both sides of this debate/disagreement. It sounds like the company is trying to put the hose to the workers. But in reality I'm suspecting they are after a new wage scale like all of Corperate America.
This Country is changing and I do not like where it's going. The workers need this to settle soon, the longer it goes the worse it will get for them. Been There !...........
What really upsets my apple cart is when the workers are asked to take a 10% pay cut then they give the top management 200% increases in salary and stock options.Mike L said:To a point that the american wages at some corporations had goten out of hand, but I can see why also.
I just wish the the CEOs and upper management would remember this. All they care about is their own bank accounts. Yes, they want to do what it takes to make the stock go up... TOMORROW! However, they have no concern about what the stock does 6 months or a year from now - when they - and the $millions that they've taken from the company - will be down the road to their next exploitation...Bipeflier said:Just try to remember that the large and small companies that are publically owned are responsible to the stock holders...
