“Private prisons are something that people - not necessarily 'liberals' - with some moral compass are against. If you have that, you need no explanation.”

“We don't do that because so many Americans have been brainwashed into believing that whatever is for the good of all is not good for them. It's the big, bad bogeyman of "socialism" (once was communism) used to terrorize them into supporting a system that only benefits the wealthy.”

“Ya and those $60,00 to $125,000 PER MONTH executive salaries had nothing to do with it, right? Wonder how many of those greedy union workers could live on one executive's salary.

Go off-topic and the personal prejudices start to surface, don't they?”

“You said take care of your employees and they will take care of you and I gave you one example where the employees definately did not take care of the company.   How many bakers could have been paid with the 80 million a year over payment to the truckers?   The exec combined salary was not even a tenth of that but lets not let the facts get in the way right?”

“I have run small businesses, and know very well how difficult it is. Employees are the backbone of any business. If you support them, they'll support you. If you can't do that and remain profitable, well...”

“Ya that worked real well for Hostess right. And it was not even the Bakers Unions fault. The Bakers were getting screwed only because the transportaton union had earlier negotiated a deal 80 million a year higher than the going rate. With the limited amount of income for wages they had no choice but to try and renegotiate with the Bakers and here we are--twinkie less (some attempt at humor)”

“I have walked that talk, and so have a lot of others. If you can't be in business, pay your workers a decent wage, and make a decent income yourself, you're either in the wrong business or shouldn't be in business at all.”

ILikeBalancedBudgets on Feb 14, 2013 at 17:01:49

“I doubt very much that you have walked the walk. If you had you would not make the comment of "in the wrong business or shouldn't be in business at all" It is very very difficult to run small business and ensure your employees and bills are paid on time.”

“Back in the 60s CEOs made 20 times the average worker's salary.

Today CEOs in the US make 400 times, and more, what the average worker makes and whine about costs. They and and their fellow executives demand wage concessions from lower paid workers while compensating themselves at the highest levels in history. They argue about how paying employees a living wage is "bad for business" while they ship American's jobs overseas.

Now we find CEOs are making more than a corporation pays in taxes. It's no wonder our economy is going down the tubes.”

“They should be fined for over compensating themselves an the money given to the underpaid and unemployed.”

“Wow, Buddy, this has been well-known for years - and it's not a matter of fraud. One study I read years ago had found that 5,000 children of Walmart employees in the state of Georgia were receiving public assistance because their parents weren't paid enough to support them.

The real cost behind everyday low prices is actually borne by the taxpayer, while the Waltons continue to amass enormous wealth. How nice.”
