Good points...I can understand
There are just too many comments on here from people who have no clue on running a business...or what goes on in running a business.
The majority of Americans who work for a living will take cuts in pay to save their jobs and companies....unfortunately too many executives these days lack the same loyalty to their employers.
And, we are getting a lot of “failed executive love” from the “living in parents basement” crowd
Being an executive is a job also. If you fail at it you can
get fired just as easy as anyone else. A lot of this comes
from robber baron companies. But sooner than later they will
fail, (naturally). You can only monkey with the balance sheet
for so long. Then you have to go to Washington and try to get
to prop you up. Which isn’t natural at all.
For all the years since 9-11, all we have heard from the boardroom is how either the employee groups make concessions, or people will lose jobs and we will file for bankruptcy. AND, we have all had to sit by and watch how management have enjoyed the fact that they receive lucrative salaries, bonuses and perks, and that THEIR concessions have been minimal to none.
My husband has remained on active duty practically since 9-11. Sure, he loves serving our country and enjoyed being recalled under President Bush, since many of the reasons he left active duty for the airlines to begin with had a lot to do with Bill Clinton. He makes about the same flying in the Marines as he does for American. He is eligible to retire from the Marines, but at this point, he’s recalled now until the end of the year.
Funny how rarely it is reported the number of times an employee lays off a company.
Right to work cuts both ways. Last time I changed jobs I did not have buy out of my employment contract, or hope that my employer would approve my plans.
I just gave notice and left.
It is the way I prefer to work. Conscription is not my bag of tea.
