What is the hilarious part - the Unions backing their members or the Republicans backing the Unions? Unions looking to obtain benefits for their members is a time honored tradition. And the only bag or rocks in this is the one the one that thinks that there is something nefarious in that.

Well @Richva, in my Twitter feed Bernie said, "Let's expand employee ownership"...

Another label for the Trump followers. NOw anyone that doesn't like Trump has to be a Socialist. and if the Democrat win the elections this country will convert to Socialism but are you forgetting how much Russia would like to see that happening.

If that is so. Hey Russia if you are listening please, do interfere with our elections and make the USA socialist as the Democrats went it to be.

Sounds like a form of Profit-Sharing.

 

"Profit Sharing" is nothing new. It just not widely used.


Profit Sharing = A system in which the people who work for a company receive a direct share of the profits.

In my Twitter feed he did not say profit sharing, he said employee OWNERSHIP...

 

 


'In my twitter feed"?  Really?   Then why didn't you present this as something in your twitter feed?  1700 people or so are "talking about this"? Gee, what percent of our population is that?

 

Many companies have had employee ownership ............. nothing new here.


Gordy - your spokesperson seems to think that profit sharing is "ownership".

As always. The rule is that if a Conservative makes a statement you must check the sources.  Do this every time because words sneak into their quotes which were never uttered. 

 

In today's lesson, Bernie never talked about worker ownership.  He did talk about the dangers  of unfettered Capitalism and made excellent points. I have posted a link below. 

 

Remember, always check the comments Conservatives make. Each word if possible.

Yes, comments warrant checking on -

employee-owned” corporations.

 

 

We used to call that a profit sharing plan here in the USA before it became a managed democracy.

 

 

Now we all have an inverted totalitarianism plan, the profits trickle up to the 1% , not down to the workers.
