DailyDirt: Giving Back To Employees

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Income inequality is a topic that has been circulating recently (partially from Robert Reich's movie "Inequality for All"), and as stats about income growth/stagnation are thrown around, there have been a few examples of corporate leaders trying to recognize their employees' hard work. Here are just some of the rare CEOs/founders who have taken a small stab at wealth redistribution from their own personal pockets. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    The idea itself of transferring assets to the employees of the company is a good move for liquidation if they take it and make businesses for themselves.

    But good luck convincing the socialist pawns that this does not work at a societal level.

    Re:

    Socialist pawns? As I libertarian Socialist myself I object.

    I do see that this does not work at a societal level.

    Want to recognise the hard work of employees? Pay them a wage they can actually live on.

    i assume the reason it 'hasn't caught on' in the UK is no one wants to start a trend! all the UK government is interested in is ensuring the wealthy, whether company bosses or not, continue to be so and the workers get hit as hard and as often as possible, so as to remove from them any form of being reasonably paid and having a reasonable life!
