In difficult times executives used the 'competitive' excuse not to share a company's wealth. In times when companies are making billions and the money goes into executive's pockets and to shareholders the same excuse is used.
Increase employee benefits, give them bonuses, give them stock in the company.
Anyone against this, speak up and explain your brainwashing.
If I ran a company, I'd make the addition of profit sharing a major portion of every employee's base pay and benefits. Everyone from the CEO down to the janitor gets an annual salary as a basic wage and then the company's entire profits are distributed proportionately among everyone. No bonuses and no stock. That's arbitrary and provides too much opportunity for favoritism and outright corruption. When the company makes money and turns a nice profit, then everybody wins big.
If you're against this, then you must be brainwashed. Or something equally sinister. :wink
