Bank of America's We-Don't-Need-No-Stinking-America Patent Application

from the how-nice-of-them dept

theodp writes "Americans are a real problem, explains Bank of America in a just-disclosed patent application for County Assessment. 'A typical American employee,' complains BofA, 'demands a high salary, good benefits, a good work environment, vacation time, and other job-related perks.' Such problems are solved with BofA's patent-pending methodology, which eliminates 'demanding work force' problems by identifying another country for a corporation to relocate its work force to."

    I think I will just start keeping my pennies in a shoe box under my bed... It is not the demand of employees that cause the problems, it is the CRAZY salaries of the "C" level and the outrageous demands of stock holders that cause companies to think this way. Wouldn't it be a disgrace to see the stock market shutdown and companies having to earn money the old fashioned way...pleasing their customers!
