that which makes uhmerika GRAPE!

YOSH!

it bee duh CEO or TPTB.
“Our CEO fits this mold perfectly: 6’2, square-jawed former athlete with glasses. Year one strategy was “let’s do something we’ve already tried and failed at and don’t need.” Year two was “let’s rename year one’s strategy.”

His car allowance equals my salary.”

and

“AND WHERE DO THEY TEND TO LIVE? IN CITIES WITH URBAN HOUSING CRISESESES. CITIES WITH URBAN HOUSING CRISEES HAVE ACRONYMS, LIKE LA OR NYC OR CHICAGO… CEO IS ALSO AN ACRONYM, WHICH REARRANGED SPELLS “OPEC”, BUT WITHOUT THE “P”. WHO ELSE DOESN’T HAVE PEE? SEA ANEMONES. ANEMONES IS A HOMONYM WITH ENEMY AND CEOS ARE THE ENEMY.

CHECKMATE. ”

and

“Right up there with getting a copy or seeing a posted memo of how as a company “we” failed to meet our expectations and will need to tighten our belts and not to expect any bonuses or raises and then reading about the ceo and board getting bonuses that are 4 or 5 times my yearly salary. ”

and

“Year Three Strategy: Do something wildly irresponsible when considering long-term profitability/stability of the company that shows a strong uptick for a few months. Use this small uptick to show “demonstrable positive institutional leadership results” to gain similar position at company in different sector for increase in salary, benefits and car allowance.”

and

“This is by design. CEOs and upper management are not paid for the work they do…they don’t do work, unless you count golf and drinking. They are paid as an incentive for you to work harder. tournament theory has been the prevailing wage/incentive theory in US corporations for decades. See if you just work harder you may get promoted up the ranks to join them at low work for high pay (the dirty secret is unless you were born into the club, you will not ascend ot those ranks.). This is done to keep idiots with strong work ethics working 60+ hours a week for free.”

and

“CEOs are a lot like NFL coaches. Sure, maybe a couple of them are actually useful, but the vast majority are paid well so that they can be fired when the team/company performs poorly, in order to appease fans/share-holders and convince them that the ownership is committed to making changes in order to succeed.”
