Journal Entry: This company is run by bastards 
6th-Jul-2009 10:18 am
I am fast coming to the conclusion that wealth is the only reality for this poor excuse of a species called humanity. Who cares if the decisions make sense or not. As long as it pads the pockets of those too rich to care about the rest of us.

To think that I, very briefly (extremely briefly), thought that they might for once be thinking about anything other than themselves. Isn't that what people do in tough economic times? Silly notions of pulling together for the greater good. I should have known it was too good to be true. A dream of fools who still believe that there are such things as honest people. Experience should have told me that it wasn't possible. If you don't take care of yourself, other people will use you to take care of themselves.

My greatest dream is to find a world with no people.

What started this cheerful train of thought?

Touch economic times require everyone to make sacrifices. So the edict went out. Wage cuts for everyone, from the highest executive to the lowest garbage eater, on a sliding scale, with the greatest percentage being deducted from highest wage earners.

Sounds equitable, if not much of a hardship for those who make 1.5 million a year. They might take one less vacation a year. But percentage-wise, we are all hit.

Unfortunately, I do not accept things at face value. I've been burned too many times. A little digging revealed that the percentage cuts don't touch the bonuses of the executives. Any guesses as to the amount of the bonuses? 10%? 20%? 30%? Try several thousand percent.

Inspiring, isn't it?

And one other little fact that they proudly announced in the first quarter results of this year, not only are they not losing money, they have made over one billion in profit, in the first quarter!

I firmly believe that evil will eventually get bit in the ass. Unfortunately, fate is slow. *places Gypsy Curse on executives who made the cruel decisions*.

It's the same at our place they bang on how well our company is doing, that we are running into profit. Except at teh time of year when they review wages then magically it is another "Difficult and challenging year" (you'd think at some point they would change the wording, but no).
All men are equal, but some are more equal than others.
Trust is only dangerous, if you have to rely on it.
Winning is the only safety - and the fat cat execs are determined to be the winners of the game.

Of course corporate bastards think wealth is the only reality, it's the only thing that matters to them. Of course they will pretend to make sacrifices while asking the workers to do it instead.
I figure they spout that type of tripe to keep the masses from lynching them.
