Well Sassy, I truly am sorry about your job losses. Sometimes, an employee loses a job and not be at fault. It happens. However, there are also circumstances when an employer must terminate a few to benefit the many. It is hard to employee anyone when you are bankrupt or have no available cash. A corporation also has to find the best staff level to produce the best returns. Their shareholders demand this. I don't know the cirucumstances regarding losing your job, but I realize how hard it must be to lose your job.<quoted text>
Pete, it's easy how I "come up with this stuff"...I watch something besides Fox Fake News and I read something besides Conservative Websites. But, most of all, I pay attention to what has happened since Reagan's years and the changes it's made and none of them are good.
BTW, I lost 4 different jobs when they moved out of the Country, too...and that will tend to get your attention!
I will state one more thing that I honestly don't think you realize. You cannot learn about how our economy operates or how a corporation operates by watching tv or reading internet articles. You have to experience it yourself to really know how our economy operates and how the business world functions. I went to school for many years thinking I was learning how to be a successful businessman. What I didn't realize was my education had just started after I graduated from school. I basically utilize nothing of what I learned in school today. What I do rely on is my own experiences and what others in my industry have taught me through example. This is the only way to fully realize how our economy operates. I don't have enough space to fill you in on all the "fun facts" regarding the business world. One thing I will mention is "Sarbanes Oxley." This one governmental business reform basically made it virtually impossible for any corporation to cheat, falsify financial statements or anything else that may defraud anyone. This is just one bit of information that nobody seems to talk about when discussing "global corporations." I understand why, not many people understand it or have heard about it. But in the business world, this is the governing force keeping everyone in line. It is also a huge reason why the things you accuse corporations of doing can't be done.
