<p>I’m trying to understand what your stance on this whole thing is, but I’m seriously struggling.</p>
<p>I never said anything about business increasing its profit margin. </p>
<p>Once again, I have to reiterate that this is not a capitalist society. In a capitalist society, when a business fails, it is an indication that it is poorly run, its services are not needed, there are better alternatives, etc. In a capitalist society, when a business fails, it does NOT receive money from the government to keep running. In a capitalist society, the government has no say in how businesses run and does not regulate businesses.</p>
You basically agree with me then. i am saying the only real valid complaint i have heard from the ows crowd is what is the mismanagement of tax payer money.(bailouts) Not big business itself, which is why they should be in Washington not wall street.
I run a business, employ roughly 30 people give or take and I can tell you even with this level of unemployment the people looking for jobs are absolutely worthless. I literally have to interview 100 people to get 10 decent people and maybe 1-2 of those will actually work out. The majority of the people I have met, employed and interacted with want more money for doing less work and a all around shitty job.
The jobs are out there trust me... It is just that people have been fooled through the various bubbles over the years and what they see in the media and on TV that everyone should be in a million dollar house with 3 cars and a vacation home some where. Gone are the days of a good honest hard working job that makes decent money and you can live a "good" life. It seems only immigrants understand this now.
