Most business people would agree, to keep their business going ,they need to maintain their machinery. If not, it comes to a grinding halt. Wake up!!! We are the machinery. If you try to keep all of the profits, without putting money back into the business(meaning us) the owners (them) still walk away with the money. We're left on the side to rust and decay,with no after thought. Basically becoming the guy who would step on his mother or kids to save his own neck. Did I get it wrong or miss something??

Worker's rights have been diminished over the past 30 years or so. We need to work hard to get them back and discover new ways to value labor.

if we all got together,stopped working for 1 day.All the people I'm speaking of would SH#@ This would tell them where the money belongs.That we are more valuable then they thought.

An action of that type has crossed my mind. I would love to see Americans stand up for themselves and know their worth instead of feeling like they're to blame because they haven't "succeeded."

Maybe a better example Slum lords (are hated) because they collect the money, only put back little if any, let the building become some place they would not live(below their standards) in the interest of money and greed. After all, who cares about the tenants?We're just here to make them rich. I guess that is how Wall Street thinks they deserve to have. What ever happened to Hard Work. Put all their work in one pile,can you touch it?? No,Can you see it ?No,Then why do you think you deserve it. All you did was make educated guesses and push a couple of buttons.Hard Work was already done,and don't say you took the risk. That just makes you a gambler,not more deserving. Put the money back where it belongs.The Hard Workers we earn it.

If you don't understand I'm sorry. Trickle Down stopped working when GREED got in the way.I say it's time to Trickle up.If you don't care for this idea your probably the kind of person I'm talking about.Thinking your better somehow, and think you deserve more then your really worth.

This is not an attack on fairforall.

I just wanted to make sure my thoughts were clearly explained

Thank you for your thoughts and comments caughtya

It is Keynesian economics to more precise. The reason for this is because greed always gets in the "way". If you don't give someone the power to manipulate the value of currency.... they can't

Not sure I understand your issue - using your example, then all businesses that haven't maintained their machinery (us) will grind to a halt. Sounds fair.
