“If we’re fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line.” — President Obama to U.S. Chamber of Commerce
If the “workers of the world” want to “share” in corporate profits (over and above their pay grade), let them take the financial risks of starting their own corporations, developing their own successful business model, implementing their own creativity and business genius, working their asses off like most corporate officers do, and reaping the rewards if they succeed, or suffering the failure if they don’t.
Or let them go to the owner of an existing corporation with a great business idea, and form a partnership, putting up their own risk capital, sweat equity, planning, hard work and business acumen in the process, and once again either reaping the rewards if the partnership succeeds, or suffering the failure if it doesn’t.
But nope, these “workers of the world” don’t want to do that. After all, they don’t have ANYTHING of any value to offer in the first place, or they’d already be doing it. No ideas. No business acumen. No willingness to struggle for months or even years to build a successful business.
Instead, they’re perpetual 9 to 5’ers who, unsatisfied with their place in life (which is the result of their own actions and decisions) want to suck off the rewards of someone else’s hard work, financial risk, business acumen, intelligence and perseverance — all under the guise of government-mandated “fairness.”
They’re like leaches who think by virtue of their very existence they “deserve” to be given a share of someone else’s investment, creativity, business acumen, and results.
And of course they want government to FORCE their boss to “share” the wealth — which simply dissipates the company revenue so that it can’t be used to hire additional workers, invest in company infrastructure, purchase new equipment, upgrade to new technology, open new departments, expand into other cities or states, etc.
And of course, once implemented, this “sharing” of the wealth with the “workers of the world” never ends. Progressive politicians in droves will campaign for office by promising to “increase the share” that the “workers of the world” will get from their bosses.
This mindset — and God forbid it ever gets implemented in this country — literally guarantees the immediate mediocrity and eventual failure of every company, because business owners are forced by government to “share” company revenue with people over and above the value of their actual contribution to the company.
The lifeblood of every company will be destroyed. No one will even want to start a new company, knowing that that only thing that will grow will be the “share” of company revenues mandated by the progressive government to Obama’s wonderful “workers of the world.”
