I think what the poster means to say on some level is "should corporations be more fair in what they pay workers in the face of record profits, and should there be profit sharing?"
I mentioned earlier that at Ford Motor Company, the labor portion of cost of goods sold (COGS) is only 6%, and yet they want employees to make concessions despite record profits.
Is it fair for a company to be so profitable, and yet pay workers wages which barely meet living expenses? In the 3rd world, the exploitation is even more egregious.
Should Gen Y rise in revolution? Lenin and his Bolsheviks were misguided but they had guts and passion (revolution
is not to be confused with "unfriending" on FB).
Why is Gen Y so apathetic?
Why do they live mostly in cyberspace and not the real world?
What will they do when their laptops are taken away? Will they find other places to pretend they're ostriches?
