Totally sick - I wish this stuff was hitting Main Stream TV in Prime time every day.

Well at least we can share and circulate on the internet social media.

Tweeted. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MKfqEzALZg

It's just like George Carlin said; "It's a big club, and you ain't in it."

Once the criminals realise that white collar crime is where the big bucks are, they want to join the club.

Great video, this is perfect example of if we set up a system where the guys at top can take it all, why won't they?

Thank you. The video you suggested very much tells Us that somethings have not changed. My brother was (is still by skills and heart) a mason. He was one of the victims of Globalism. He is still affected by being laid off almost 4 years ago. He works here and there trying to make ends meet. Here we are, 4 yrs later, what concrete evidence do we need that what CEOs do in other countries does not starve families in other countries?

I hope this is a start, there is a labor rally in Philly Saturday 8/11. Here's a link

Buses will be coming from NY and DC. I hope the media covers it. I really think they're in collusion with the corporations as far as keeping things like this under wraps.

Cenk is a smart guy! Awesome post and thanks for the video share!

Top comment from the video

"I work for a company that has had a pay raise freeze for close to 6 yrs now and for about 4 yrs, has had a program where anyone below middle management (and even some in middle management) has to take 40 hrs of unpaid time off each quarter. Initially this was announced as a temporary measure to "save us from laying people off", but in the meantime, we've gotten more business and # of responsibilities per position has increased. It's the "paradigm shift" business shows talk about and it sucks."

yeah, "everybody must tighten their belts", except for upper management, of course.

it's really sad. The plan is to get slave labor in America so they don't have to spend money on shipping costs from China and other countries where they currently have slave labor making products.

Neoliberalism chases the lowest production costs, and soon after factoring in the price of shipping, that will be here. The good part is there will be more jobs, the bad part is you will not be able to afford to live anywhere near as good as the way you do now.

the problem with capitalism is the pigs are never full.

the Waltons are worth billions while our income taxes pay for their employees that work 40 hours a week to be on food stamps.

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

No, they never are "full."

You do know that a pay freeze is really a pay decrease. 13.8% by this inflation calculator.

Is the company publicly traded or have it's profit and loss available?

I don't know about the company. I was just sharing a quote from the top comment in the video from the original post.

Isn't this one of the companies that the Obimination boasts about being successful for providing jobs, and applauds Catapillar for their succss?
