    Exactly, record profits for record productivity with the least amount of labor they can get away with! How much did the wage slaves get who do all the work? 1%? Ooh, maybe a whopping 3%? And probably after having their wages frozen since 2008 because of the "bad economy". How much of those profits were made by denying sick people WITH POLICIES medical care?

    I remember Obama saying he was going to change all this and millions of people believing him and buying into him.


    Since those same ppl still support him, this article has to be lying, right?

    I'm paying myself about 50K more than i did last year.

    For the past 5 years we've pumped a lot of our profits right back into the business. This year I'm keeping some for myself.

    And workers' salaries are stagnated and now declining vs. inflation and cost of living... Labor has never been cheaper, but they won't be happy until we are at third world status, IMO.

    The company i've worked for 20 years now had a record breaking year. This was also their 50th anniversary. This summer they had a huge celebration that was open to the public, over 4000 people came. They gave all employees (almost 500 of us) bonus's....$50 for each year we've worked there. My husband also works there (he has 15 yrs, he's in the union, i'm in the office), so we got a couple pretty nice checks. Every year the union people get an 1100.00 bonus on 12/1. This year because the company has done so well, they surprised the office people with an 1100.00 bonus as well! And...we also got our regular raises.

    I know there aren't A LOT of companies out there that treat their employees so well, we're truly blessed to be there. It's a family owned company that has grown so much they have places now also in the UK, China & Brazil. This is truly a family that cares about their employees. Too bad all companies weren't the same.
