The man has some good points. I didn't realize Westgate was 100% private and actually run by the guy who started the company. How unusual a thing to
still see among the Corp world today. Everything seems to be shareholders and loyalty to the almighty dollar above, beyond and at the direct expense
of everything else. Indeed...
Well, his business, his work to make it and his blood, sweat and tears to keep it going. He's also dead on accurate on something else. As the owner,
whatever he makes, he EARNS. When I owned by own truck I grossed over $200,000 a year. Gross... Now my net income was closer to $35,000 and of that?
Hell..I think I got to actually feel and handle 1/4 of that. For that? I can relate as I read his words.... No kidding. Company drivers got to the
yard, parked the companies truck and went home. Owners went home and spent the whole time off at least partially in the truck..thinking of that weird
noise from the last trip, or the fuel mileage being off...of an in-frame service needing done soon...
Hell, if he chooses to pull the plug, that's up to him too. He lived it for over 40 years. Such is life when the man who made the company is still
standing as the man to un-make it, if he so desires.
Perhaps hunting the 1% that create jobs like it's a national sport IS NOT the best way to accomplish economic recover, but that's just me. Killing
the very goose that produces the golden egg seems...short sighted in a terminal way.
