I would have less of an issue with these people if they used their money to better society.. shouldn't they be an example to us all.. IF they actually did increase jobs, give their workers worthy health benefits...bring them up as well.. instead of pocketing all the excess...
I have no problem with people having a lot of money. But I want them to spend it. Because when they spend it that money goes back into the economy.
They build a brand new house… it creates construction jobs. They buy fancy cars and pay too much for them; buy overly expensive designer purses… let them blow their money and let that money create jobs.
The thing is that we do not need to take the money/wealth away from those who have it. What we can do is to create new wealth. How do we do that? Well people create new businesses and thus new jobs. They and their employees take their income and invest in things, buy/build houses, and so forth.
many are looking for every way possible to have "machines" replace the working man/ woman... or taking these companies over seas , using slave labor to save more money to line their golden pockets, loop-holing their way through life.... I have nothing but disdain for people like this..
If it gets to the point where machines replace most jobs and we have even larger numbers of unemployed, those with money are going to have to support the unemployed mases… or face revolt. Unhappy, unfed masses are a disaster for a society.
And No... I wouldn't be this way.. not that I could ever prove it.. I'll never be a rich person.. I just know I would have more concern & want to share the success -with those behind the scenes working for me..
I think that we need to protect the rights of employees. Over the last 16 years or so the rights of individuals in the work force have been eroded. With jobs moving overseas, employers are taking away benefits, lowering pay, etc. and telling employees that they are just lucky to have a job… so shut up.
But we can't legislate decency, treating others as we would want to be treated / care for our employees, can we ?? .. no because of A** holes like Henry Ford.. Unions had to be started..and I know.. I know.. people take advantage here too -being lazy.. my husband is in a Union.. he sees it.. but he's not like that.. no matter what it is.... someone will take advantage.. Yes it IS a crying shame..
There will always be this kind of strive between employers/employees and hard-workers and lazy-people.
