Then it gets hijacked, if Government was transparent and out in the open for public scrutiny, by the forth estate, it would be different. But that essential arm of democracy was bought off decades ago.

First off, businesses don't create jobs just for the hell of it. Jobs are a by product of the company needing a service to be completed. Your assumption that the employees hired to perform that job are paid less than they are worth is flawed. As has been stated time and time again, wages are simply where the supply and demand intersect as far as labor is concerned.

It is nothing new to offer employees shares in the company. Most companies do it all the way down to the lowest paid employee.


I would argue that we have been conditioned to except exploitation. I have a very hard time when someone tells me that a man sitting in the corner office making what 100 employees make in a day, in one hour. That has very little to do with supply and demand and has a whole lot more to do with tradition and culture, maintaining the niche of power that has been crafted and carved out since the time of the monarchs and slave masters. I son of a bitch attending a meeting, responding to 15 emails, taking 10 calls, going to gym, checking his stocks and asserting a sense of leadership does not, by my estimations, equate the insane pay gaps that are evident in the business world. IT is an "old boys" club that is self perpetuating and self serving. I love business and innovation, but I rather despise the culture and economics that are at play within the typical hierarchy. I can't help it

During any economic down turn, leaving your job due to wage disparity is not always the best course of action is my point.
