    the funny thing is that @zombie was actually making some good points about how business really works

    cats just don't want to accept it because of their emotions/lack of real education when it comes to running a business

    The way business really works for who? That sure as hell isn't how business works for the workers.

    Like the stats said.

    Americans think a ratio of CEO to worker pay at 30:1 is pushing it. They aren't even aware that in reality it's about 300:1. People would fight against someone earning $15 an hour saying its too much but think it unreasonable for a CEO to go from $12 million to $8 million a year.

    And somehow the business "won't be able to sustain itself" if the suits earned $5-$8million a year as opposed to $12.

    Y'all are chattel of the worst kind.

    Some americans think the earth is 5000 years old. It's not my fault they are idiots. The workers can think whatever the fuck they want to think they don't own the company.

    Anyone can flip burgers but the skills needed to be a corporate executive cannot be filled by just anyone. This hard reality further justifies their higher pay.

    If a company can economically justifying paying 15 bucks then that's fine but mandatory salaries for simple work anyone could do it bullshit.

    So it's not about whats good for the economy or the country its all about greed

    We are in a vicious cycle that makes social mobility almost impossible for millions of Americans.

    If you are born poor or even into a working class family you will most likely go to a failing school that teaches you no real world skills. You are given a degree that only prepares you for a no skill minimum wage job, college and trade schools are too expensive so you have to take a job flipping burgers.

    The company you work for is greedy and refuses to pay you a living wage so the taxpayers have to pick up the slack by funding "social safety net" programs.



    This is the reason why tax cuts and other trickle down economic strategies never work because the "job creators" never actually create any new jobs and they never raise wages so all that money the government gives them just ends up going in their off shore bank accounts. Whereas if the middle and working class and the poor came across extra money it would end up going right back into the economy which would raise demand and lead to more jobs being created.


    But maybe I'm wrong and I don't really understand how the economy and business works and I'm just brainwashed by the democrats and etc.

    I hope that this movie is shot in Africa and not in front of a green screen. I would like them to show the beautiful and modern side of Africa, and not what is usually depicted on television and film.
