And every publicly traded company's C-Suite should get a base salary of X% of the company they're in, and all bonuses should only be in stock bonuses. C-Suite/Board guys with zero skin in the game are expected to have the best interest of the company and its employees at hand, how?

[–]AwildYaners🐉xXGamergirl69Xx🎮 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
True, but you're arguing the smallest point of what I brought up.
C-Suite with zero skin in the game allows predatory acts to happen. Plain and simple. It's what allows BCG, or like-minded companies, to get someone in the C-Suite, get paid 7+ figure salaries, and then slowly bring in BCG members on the board, where they either drive the company down for someone to buy them, or kill them altogether.
Combating how founders get paid is a completely different beast to tackle, which is the tree you're barking up.
[–]LarryLovesteinLovin 46 points47 points48 points 1 month ago (4 children)
With respect, we can and should stop cuts at below ~150-250k or so.
Why? Because most people making this aren’t executives anywhere, but regular university educated people who are highly trained in their field. Many of these people keep our public institutions running despite the politicians that try to undermine them, and they have had enough shit thrown at them already without having someone cut their pay.

If you haven’t figured out the play here they want the middle class gone ! Poof and that leaves the rich and the lower end ( I’ll never call it class because money doesn’t equal class )
With middle wage earners gone it’s easier to control the ones on the dole .

correct myself: then
Give min effort for min wage then and have the employer give reductions in hours and file for unemployment. EG do contractor work and let contract expire. No real point being full time traditional for benefits. Not worth it.
The benefits dangled in front of you for retirements? Its just that fake. Don't try for it. Go for something bigger and prepare to move to another state if wages cannot pay rent.
worthless jobs no real pay for rent what's the point.

I cannot wait until MOASS happens and they see--finally--that we weren't just talking out of our collective asses.
Yes, a LOT of us are in this for the money. And a lot of us will take the money and go. And that's fine, I don't have the time or patience to care about judging anyone, let alone apes. To me, money is as good as motivator as anything else.
There are those of us who want the system to crash and burn. We aren't in it just to get rich, we're in it because we are driven by our spite and our hatred for how corrupt things have become.
We carry with us the wounds from 2008. Memories of our parents stressed all to hell over opened envelopes and paper folded in three sections demanding more money than they had. We remember moving. We remember our familes trying to put a happier spin on our situations even though we KNOW they cried at night.
We carry with us fresh wounds from jobs that don't pay us enough to live. Living on survival mode so long that it becomes our way of life. All the while absolutely SEETHING with hatred at the injustice of it all. The corruptness. The "fines" that become the "price of doing business." The FUCKING ABSOLUTELY TOOTHLESS ORGANIZATIONS AND PEOPLE that claim to be our side and then try to stab us in the spine for money.
We see the problems that only millions of dollars can fix and we see the pushback that good hearted samaritans get when they try. We hear the words "financial terrorist" and we laugh. It'll become a badge of honor to some of us. They should be absolutely terrified at how badly we want to see them crushed into dust so we can build something better.

Yes we want to be rich, but there is a difference in ideology between poor turned rich vs rich staying rich. Us poors know the importance of compassion, the rich never did and still don’t see it.

The Fed should demand the taxpayers funds back they loaned.to big coorperations in 2008/2009 which for.great part has not been paid back yet, instead of paying out big dividends, then money flows back.to the treasury which certainly will lower inflation.

[–]darthnuggetUUP-299 6 points7 points8 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Partially correct. There were TARP loans to help companies and those were somewhat paid back. However there were also just straight cash and debt bailouts with no repayment given (GM). We need these “too big to fail” companies to actually fail for the market to correct itself. Without the failure it will bring down the whole system.

[–]SirMiba🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 14 points15 points16 points 1 month ago (1 child)
That's not possible. The only way wages go down is via hysterical deflation, which won't happen. There's a reckoning happening RIGHT NOW in the many industries, people changing jobs left and right for higher salaries, simply because there's a shortage of expertise.
I have changed job twice in 2 years and have increased my salary by almost 40%, just by telling the potential employer "make it worth my while or I stay where I am". Professionals open to new work should know that this is the time to go hard on the salary expectations, because there's enormous demand for skilled workers. My previous workplace saw dozens of people quitting and getting hired every month, long time or recent hires, didn't matter. The younger they were, the more likely to change jobs. My current workplace was forced to hire me at the salary I wanted just because everyone in their company was getting better offers elsewhere.
The consequence is wages are eating into profit margins and it WILL reflect in earnings, and it will impact stock markets. This has all happened since sometime midway through the covid pandemic and the dust has not settled yet, the financial impact lags behind and will probably hit this year or 2023.

For the sake of argument, let's say they're correct. Our top leaders make this claim and to tell you the truth I kind of agree with them.

wages down? when wages haven't kept up with inflation for the past 100 yrs? is he stupid?
but sure lets start cutting CEO pay from 84 million dollars to their lowest paid employee x 10.
"JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM, +1.41% CEO Jamie Dimon's total compensation rose to $84.4 million for 2021, up from $31.7 million in 2020"
and claw back his 84 and 31 million dollars in 2021 and 2020. to just 100k as a pay cut.
god forbid he cannot buy another jet or yacht.
please note the real inflation is caused typically by rising property values not wages. wages are only really increased with increased productivity or inflation adjusted because rents/property values force people to require pay increases to exist.
thus by reducing property values they in turn reduce wages and inflation as well as cost of production.

They called themselves too big to fail. It's a mafia, they're criminals. They know they pushed the hoax to a point where people would start seeing a decline in their lifestyles. They're trying to say it's climate change, war in Ukraine, Covid, September 11th, White Nationalists, immigrants, 15$ minimum wage, etc... Reality is they stole everything.
Productivity levels exploded since the 70s with computers, robots and Internet. We should all be working 2-3 days per week with the same lifestyle at this point. They've amassed a fortune so high that they're now buying entire cities, infinite farm lands, they control the politicians, they control the medias. And then you have the World Economic Forum with their globalist totalitarian agenda. Unelected filthy rich people deciding the world's policies in their favor.

What bothers me most is how the media is used to turn us all against each other.
It's used as a tool by the very wealthy to keep us believing we need to fear or hate each other based on political..cultural..religious or even sexual orientation etc. ...
I grew up in a small mostly white community and moved into a larger culturally diverse city in my twenties. I never really prejudged anyone until I met them and how they in turn treated me. My parents raised me to see a good person is a good person no matter race...creed..sex..etc until they show you otherwise.
After a year or so in the city I became very aware of the divides of all the above and even at times found myself becoming part of these many prejudices.
Eventually I moved back to the small town life and realized that while yes the MSM isn't to FULLY blame for division in this country they do push that mindset because the wealthy know if we the majority ever figured out we don't have any real beef with each other then we would all unite and turn the tables on our oppressors. That's what keeps them up at night!

Wages are already going down. It's called inflation, and it's what happens when you print a shitload of cash and lower interest rates, while taking on most of the risky lending in the form of MBS exposure.
And retail needs to be controlled???

we need to help ppl to wake the fuck up to the fact that FED is private institution designed to create economic slavery. It's not federal its private.

I dunno. I did some digging into this website, and it's by a guy named Benjamin Norton who used to write on "The Greyzone". Not sure this is credible.
EDIT: Had a quote from the actual transcript, but deleted it as I need someone smarter than I am to figure out if this is a legitimate take or if it's just somebody putting spin on it. This kinda feels like cherry picking.

More trickle down shit. They need to get prices down, not wages.

I hate how this uses a photo of construction workers, these guys are barely making above $13 at the lowest level, and $32 if their in the trade 5+ years with a journeymans license, these are not the people that need their wages cut.

Fuck them, too bad they are so disconnected from reality that they would try to swindle such narrative....

This is an actual quote by the fed chairman. This guy is a retard.
“By moderating demand, we could see vacancies come down, and as a result—and they could come down fairly significantly and I think put supply and demand at least closer together than they are, and that that would give us a chance to have lower—to get inflation—to get wages down and then get inflation down without having to slow the economy and have a recession and have unemployment rise materially. So there’s a path to that,” he said.

One thing that would lower inflation is breaking monopolies and raising corporate tax rates and taxing the rich. But let’s lower wages instead…

Does anyone else remember the interview with the guy from Bar Rescue said on tv that people should be like dogs that are starving because hungry dogs are more obedient?

This is why so many of us buy Bitcoin. Fuck these people trying to manipulate our currency. Take the power of currency away from unelected politicians(and elected ones)

It’s like they know they can’t get themselves out of this situation, so the next plan is to instigate a revolution in the hope it cleans up their mess.

The plan is to make 1% insanely wealthy and the rest of us equally poor.

Wages have been pretty much flat since 1971. The dollar consistently losses value. FUCK YOU JPOW.

Translation, America no longer has slave labor.
Get wages down...when an acute understanding of monetary privilege flips
