Debt Ceiling - Battle Creek, MI

Companies discovered long ago they can get by with less manpower by creating new 'titles' for the same position, (example: A Secretary is now called a Administrative Assistant), plus pile on more responsibilities for $1 or $2 more on the hour. By combining 2 positions into 1, they can eliminate other employees and keep more of the profits for themselves. With the now combined positions and the tax cuts and credits, companies make record profits and continue building their own wealth and power. The Tea Party Freshmen and the GOP refusing to tax the rich is a perfect example of greedy... let's keep the money all to ourselves attitude... and is typical of the wealthy. Since these large companies have cut their employees in half, (resulting in most of their record profits), they should have to pay extra in taxes and be required to take care of the unemployed they created.  (Jul 22, 2011 | post #1)
