    Lets say you have two job offers. Here they are:

    JOB 1:

    You are hired with a group of 99 other employees. In 5 years, 50 of you will be promoted and get a 10% pay raise. The other 50 will remain there and retire making 35K a year. Of the 50 promoted, another 25 will be promoted to middle management within 5 more years, a 10% raise, to about 42K a year. Of those 25, in about 5 more years, 10 will be promoted to upper management, with a 20% raise, making over 50K a year. Everyone else retires where they are. Of those 10, 5 will have a chance to reach the upper parts of the company, making over 80K a year, and there is a strong chance one of those 5 will become VP or CEO one day, earning a huge check. All 100 employees get healthcare. This structure will continue as long as the company remains in business. Your goal is simply to compete and outsell your opponents in doing your assigned duties.

    JOB 2:

    You are hired with a group of 99 other employees. You all start off at 40K a year with benefits. No one is promoted. All of you will earn this salary and retire on it. Boards, managers and a CEO will be voted on or appointed by the owner of the company. Managers will also be appointed, but no pay raises will be given for managers, CEO's, only additional responsibility. All will earn the same. Your goal is to beat out your opposition companies.


    So....

    1- Which job would you take?
    2- Which company will be more successful?

    This will answer a lot of our current political economic questions.

    Neither. I'd find an angel investor and buy both companies-merge them. Then, develop add-ons for Apple products.

    2 year degree.
    Manual at first, more office work as you get promoted.
    Both jobs are the same in those regards.
    Job is at a car manufacturing plant.
    Both in Savannah, Georgia. Non union.

    That should be plenty for a simple answer. You're jobless and broke. Which one you gonna take?
