View Full Version : I think there should be a new forum here called "Captialist Pigs in Corporate"

You see, most of the suckiness at my place of work is not with customers (in fact, with maybe about one exception every month or two, the ones I get are very nice and understanding), co-workers (again, with only one or two exceptions) or even management (other than our GM, the asst. managers are very easy to work with and for; I also like the fact that our "first officer" is a fellow baseball card collector). It's the fact that the captalist pigs in our national and regional headquarters get to live in splendor off their over $1.2 billion (yes, that's with a B) while we, the regular workers, must struggle to get by on around $10-$12K a year. Shoot, would sharing a third of that profit to give everyone a $1000 bonus (we have 390K employees) for making that huge profit possible be too much to ask?
Therefore, I propose we have a seperate forum called "Capitalist Pigs in Corporate" for where the suckiness occurs at above the managerial level, as it's not always maangement's fault.

This just screams fratching, and I can see it going very bad very quickly. Hell, even I want to argue about it. If you care to repost it over there, I'll take you up on the chance to argue economics. :)

I don't think it's a good idea either. It can only end in a political flame fest.

Moved to the Site Suggestions section.
In short, it's not close to what we do. It's political, and politics are for Fratching.
Besides, you can always start a coop with an equal pay policy. I work in one. It's awesome!

Sorry, guys, I had no idea there was a suggestions forum here. My apologies. And I don't understand why it has to be political. I doubt political afflilation has anything to do with why some corporations choose to not care about their employees.
And who is this Fratching guy?

For controversial subjects. :)
This is the Fratching of which the mods so often speak. Nobody seems to listen though . . .

It's probably a bad idea just based on the fact that most of the memebers wouldn't have enough stories to make a forum or sub-forum worth the extra space.
I'd say just post any odd stories that occur in the MiM section, as corporate is still kinda managementish, so it fits.
