So Starbucks is starting to figure out what Costco and Google have known - pay well for your workers and they'll reward you for it.

/But if that's the case, then those people who wrote economics textbooks would be right after all!

IvyLady: We really have to stop letting twenty-five year old Wall Street analysts tell us how to run our country. The same morons who will reward a company for spending an extra $100 million on their CEO would run that company's stock through the shredder for spending that same $100 million on all the other employees combined.  This has to stop.


99.9% of analyst are just assholes talking to make themselves feel smart

It's a laudable effort, I suppose, but I'm still in the camp that thinks companies with extra cash to throw around should put it directly into the pockets of their workers, rather than trying to influence their behavior by giving it to a third party, be it PNC or ASU.

unlikely: The unspoken problem: "This will set a precedent that other companies can't live up to without an impact on the bottom line!"

Here's the thing they're not noticing: I will be far more likely to choose Starbucks than I've been in the past. I suspect I'm not unique in this.


Your name befits your statement.
