This reminds me of a complaint one of my coworkers had this year: someone on a conference call spent an hour making fun of everyone else on the call because he thought he had muted his phone. Even worse, since he had the volume for the call turned down, every time they stopped the meeting to ask him to stop being an ass he didn't realize they were talking to him.

Many complaints were sent up the chain and his boss sent out a very apologetic email promising that next time he would make sure he was actually on mute.

If you're making the company a $10 profit per hour of your labor, your labor isn't worth $15 an hour, no matter how hungry your family is.

I don't want to get into a long discussion, but $10 profit is above and beyond the wage you're paying the worker. I'm talking about the wealth created by a wage slave's work.

An investigation by the IRS and the FBI, because any business with that kind of COGS ratio in gross margins is clearly a money laundering operation and Bob is muling the dough out of the country up his ass or baked into the widgets.

Gentleman you are all wrong. This is a way for this company to determine which employees are having Real™ financial difficulties. Since these fine companies know that employees with Real™ financial difficulties tend to miss more work or have other work issues they can now identify these workers and fire them for stealing or some other thing that will get them denied benefits because you know they would be irresponsible to their shareholders if their unemployment insurance copay went up. This way they can hire more productive workers.

It was an unbelievably dumb question. Here's a better one.

Nurse Jane works in a hospital in Pittsburgh. She brings $300,000 worth of value to the hospital. UPMC knows she can't switch jobs because her mother is very ill and can't be moved or live on her own. Oh, and because UPMC owns all of the hospitals in a 20 mile radius.

Does UPMC have any obligation to pay Nurse Jane enough to eat and keep her heat and electricty on? Or should UPMC pay her the minimum possible, because they know she can't switch jobs?

$10 profit does not mean $10 revenue when sold. That means it's revenue - cost. To say "you're making your company $10 of profit per hour" would already be assuming you're being paid a certain wage - so there would be room for being paid more.

Your hilarious misunderstanding of what "profit" means aside, let's be real here. We live in a time when corporate profit margins are at all-time highs, with wages stagnating. To contend, with zero supporting evidence other than "they want to pay lower wages", that any company needs to pay low wages because they aren't profitable enough is ludicrous. Your scenario is in no way resembling the reality of this, or any other situation. Show me where UPMC is hurting financially, and perhaps you have a valid argument here.

a different job?

I worked as a temp at Philips fixing O2 concentrators. The work was filthy, the hours long, and the pay was lackluster. I took the job because I needed work, but didn't stop looking. My co-workers were quite surprised that I managed to find something else. After I told my supervisor, she said, "Wow, you didn't get stuck!" -- as though it was an accomplishment to find something better.

To be fair, I have an IT and support background, so it was easier for me to find something else. Some of my co-workers, maybe not so much.

perhaps not but if you're in a job which doesn't pay enough to feed yourself and you're still in the same job 9 years later, there's something wrong. That's an awful long time to not find something better.

I guess you could look at it like that; I look at it from the perspective that many big corporations will do anything to cut overhead; including screwing over their employees.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of companies go to a salary system as aposed to a hourly system just to get around the health care thing.

iheartscotch: This is what is going to happen to companies forced to provide health care for those who work over 30 hours; no one is going to work over 30 hours and they are going to have to provide their own insurance or they will be penalized.

Fewer hours from each employee, more sick employees, means we need more employees.

So it was jobs bill.

just wow...

I think madam Guillotine needs to show up at the next boardroom meeting.Ya think a boardroom filled with headless corpses of ex-execs might... just might.. be enough to scare wallstreet and its ilk that maybe they need to stop being dicks to the rest of the population?

It'd be interesting to see what the effect would be if it happened. I imagine we'd see the executives fleeing for armed and defended compounds and the people on Fox freak out that the peons are rising up...

Mentat: It's the thought that counts.


"We think you should all eat well and live in nice houses and have cars that run good and look pretty and here's a free can of peas." Like that?

Oh good! Now your colleagues can actually see you hit up the food bank at work. How dignifying.

That sounds about right. Don't pay your workers enough? Why not open a food bank so other people can buy them food that you won't pay them enough for.

This is exactly what you get with capitalism.

Yeah? Well, just try making a seed deposit at the food bank, then come back in a few months expecting to make a withdrawal.
