Not true.

In fact I worked for several companies where employees were working hard to try to keep the company in business while the owners were bleeding the company for their own benefit (their right of course) and making bad business decisions that resulted in bankruptcy and the dissolution of the company.

Who gets hurt more? The employees who all lose their jobs.

The owners in the two instances I'm talking about walked away with big piles of money and all the employees had to find work elsewhere.

If as an owner you were really focused on what makes businesses work, you would have been talking about paying individual employees what they are worth to the company rather than talking about "low end" workers and "high end" workers and increasing their pay in different "scheduled" ways.




Yes comrade, the proletariat is being exploited by the bourgeoisie.  Hey Don, Jeff's finally coming out as a socialist.  You have a win kind of.   I don't consider it a loss though because I've always said he's not a libertarian.

So Jeff, let me esplain capitalism to you.  The point is that in my system, capitalism, those businesses go under and are replaced by companies that are run well.  And you admitted that's what happened.

You think that was an argument ... against ... capitalism that you ran a bad company that went under?

I doubt the employees were actually working that hard to fix it.  Employees only do that in well run companies.  But at least you admitted that capitalism works and yet you're a socialist.   I'm tired of winning now

That's what I said, idiot owners, especially if they are greedy and think of most of their employees as "low level workers", can easily destroy businesses.

That's probably what you did, bled five businesses into foreclosure in quick succession and walked away with the assets.

That would be giving him more credit than he deserves. His 5 business failures would have been more likely small businesses that were started without a rational and workable business plan and just outright failed before making any profit for him.

The pig's demeanour on this forum tells the real story, regardless of what he claims. He's not the kind of person who could run a profitable business because he sees employees as a liability to start with.

You bring out the 'best' in him. There's no other side to the pig that's ever been demonstrated on this forum.

And you have to steal Don's material?  Wow.  That's hitting bottom, Jeff.  Get help

The cartoon is just another example of your immaturity. Otherwise, the insult to Jeff is your kneejerk attempt to deny that which has become as obvious about you as it as become obvious to me.

You have a rotten disposition which couldn't have been compatible with success in business.

Can't you even demonstrate that you're a decent human being for at least a day?

Is this when you take another year off?  You need to now because everybody's picking on you.
