Ummmm companies.  How do they work again?

/Hint: they are laying off people because working people don't like the company.  Hint 2: Your 'likability index' for choosing leaders and bosses is based on High School Student Council and the Democratic National Convention.  Grow up.

SirEattonHogg: Yes, but one could argue that his money trickled down to the Ferrari salesman and the auto production workers at Ferrari, and his tax dollars will go in part for the laid off worker's welfare and unemployment benefits.

So, in fact, this consultant/board member is actually a good guy.  A hero, even.

Mr. Shabooboo: I might very well be incited to pee all over, or in if possible, that car if that had happened to me.


That's some trickle down we can all believe in!

So there is no trickle down unemployment?

Unless the company takes government money, or he manipulated stock prices, then there really is no issue here (other than the general idea that rich people should get taxed more). But this isn't even the US, so I'm sure he was taxed.

Please, save your outrage for corporations that lobby government and contribute to political campaigns, in order to get billions of dollars in handouts using taxpayer money,  which end up as executive bonuses.

THAT is the shiat that needs to stop.

Not some overpaid jerk in a Ferrari.

I used to work at a small company where two fellow IT staff had recently been sacked for lack of funds and our jackass boss kept arriving in his Porsche.

Vettel would not have led every race by a second at the end of the first lap if it weren't for KERS. No point in discussing the virtues of industrial diesel welder engine technology. If you drop you chips, have you been "sacked"?

There are certain chemicals that won't be noticeable or will look like water, but will leave a lasting impression after a few days.  It would be a damn shame if someone were to spell "douche" on that car with one of those chemicals.

Sid_6.7: F*ck that sh*t. Public sector all the way! Money-makingest motherf*cker (the Pres.) makes less than 10x my salary.


The salaries for executives in the private sector tends to be on the low side.  It's those stock options that make them the big bucks.

And if you think the president gives a rat's ass about his salary, you are naive.  He's making connections now that will guarantee him more money than god.  Look at the senate.  Every single one that has been in office a few terms is a millionaire, no matter what their financial state was when they first entered office.  They certainly don't get rich from their senate pay.

What's not fair? Every person at the company, before they were hired, was told what the job is and what the compensation would be, AND EACH ONE AGREED TO THE DEAL*. Nobody's getting ripped off.

* - They agreed to the deal because it was the best offer they received. IOW, the manager of this place made them a better deal than any other of the 7+ billion on Earth. How evil. Get the pitchforks!!!!!

worked for a niche start-up soda company for a while several years ago.  They are in some of the box stores now, but those first few years were lean.  The whole of the company was myself, one other factory hand, the advertisement/accountant guy, and the owner.  Worked our collective asses off.  Boss didn't collect a salary.  Paid for food and such from the company slush fund.  He wasn't eating well, either, and he drank a lot of the company soda, from the bottles that didn't make it to the label machine for one reason or another(...and beer; raging pre-alcoholic).  He was, IMHO, what bosses should be, in terms of sacrifice for the company.  He ran with the company, put his blood, sweat and tears(and a ton of swearing) into the job, and it is finally paying dividends.  While I am somewhat sad about leaving, I couldn't stay with a boss who swore that much, lost his cool so often, or came in drunk from the night before so many times.  I can still see him beating the soda processing machine with a wrench when it broke down.  He kept wondering why it broke so often.

/got a call 3 months after quitting; double my salary, full benefits, 40+ hours per week, because they kept getting layabouts in the hiring process
//not worth it, for the reasons stated above
///stop hitting the damn machine!

So, in fact, this consultant/board member is actually a good guy.  A hero, even.

However if an angry employee were to acquire a firearm and off this hero (heaven forbid), the money from the firearms acquisition would of course trickle down to the gun salesman and gun manufacturer, plus those sales tax dollars will also help the laid off worker's welfare and unemployment.

Furthermore, the subsequent funeral of said hero would once again inject money into the economy and trickle down to the mortician and his assistants, as well as manufacturer of said coffin, hearse rental company, and so on and so forth. PLUS the inheritance tax the hero's estate would then go to pay for welfare and unemployment benefits, not to mention the monies from the resale of the hero's Ferrari and all its trickly benefits.

Heaven forbid.

But none of that, of course, can replace the value of what was lost: One true, red-white-and-blue, American hero, fighting to the end for the greatest nation on God's green earth.

/And then some kid breaks his widow's window, and the trickling starts anew!

So then they'll be the rich people who are vilified for spending their money and killed if they don't spend it. And the cycle will begin anew.

The Lone Gunman: Well, if those 45 employees were more bootstrappy, maybe THEY'D have a Ferrari.

What?  The "bootstraps" path to success is garbage and it's more dependent on who you know, rather than how hard you work?

Never mind.


That's still the bootstraps method. Every successful business person cultiviates relationships with people that can help them. Cracked.com explains this well in their pod cast.

Industry doesn't involve working? I mean, no, these machines are probably not being bought for personal use in most cases. But each industrial diesel engine purchased is purchased for some blue-collar person or persons to use, presumably, while working. It's not like the company makes Tiffany lamps or yachts, which was the inference made - that the products were useless to the "working people". But I'd say that providing work is useful to working people, and all of the engines that company sells put working-class people to work.

Yep. And I totally understand when they fly airplanes into our commercial buildings, too.

If more people understood why that happens instead of going "but those were Saudis and they have lots of money and anyway but whargarble and therefore like such as!" we'd be well on our way to solving those issues. But they don't, so we aren't.
