No, they tell people that they need a profit, or else they can't survive as employees without a salary, or they can't afford to expand their business
or create new things if they don't make a profit.
Breaking even is never the goal of a business if it is meant to have any longevity.
Pay-outs and bonuses and everything else are ways of keeping those who the company sees as invaluable under their employment or are earned rewards for
monies invested. Yes, some are amounts that I see as unwarranted, and there are often unnecessary expenditures by companies, but I'm not an executive,
I don't own a business, and I don't fully understand the nuances of keeping employees and investors happy.
But what you've done is turned this conversation into an excuse to complain about the 1% instead of discussing healthcare, so I'm out. This isn't
really a thread about stereotyping and generalizing bad corporate spending--and even if it was such a thread, this is a tired discussion that's been
had innumerable times on ATS.
