Am I the only person left who doesn’t look at a “job” as an “entitlement”?
I’m 72 (retired now) and of the jobs I’ve held over the years, it always worked like this:
- Company needs help
- I apply for job
- I interview for job
- Employer tells me about the job, and the pay offered
- I make choice to take the job, based on whether:
a) I can to the job
b) I’m willing to do the job
c) I can live on the pay offered.
- I take the job
I never worried if the CEO, or the company made more money than me...if they didn’t, they couldn’t afford to give me, and others, jobs.
It’s basic...company needs help, company sets the pay based on what it’s worth to them to get the job done; I take the job, and go to work everyday.
If I find work I like better, or that pays more, I am willing and able to quit, and take the new job.
Companies, corporations, and CEO’s will ALWAYS make way more than individual employees. Whining about it will not get you a raise, and could get you Unemployed.
Want to make their salaries...then get the training, the experience, the success, and the attitude to be a CEO, and go for it...otherwise, STFU.
No you are not the only one.
The point is Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos gets involved with left wing politics and politicians through his money and him owning the Washington Post, the whole time taking advantage of the taxpayers in many ways - he should have STFU and stayed under the radar.
I, too, thought that was the way things work. Did we miss the unicorns or something?
