    This Virus Has Shown How Important Corporations Are To The People

    With all the people losing their jobs now, they now realize just how important these big businesses are for their survival. Tons of people are out of work wondering how they are going to make money. But when they are employed, they have nothing but bad words for these companies.

    I hopefully never want to hear leftists or progressives complaining about big businesses ever again. You see what happens when they shut down. Millions of people become stressed and scared for money.

    What say you guys?

    actually, it's showing the failure of trickle-down economics. Many wealth owners see no reason to help or invest in the workers and even use the crisis to further exploit them.
    Tons of people are out of work wondering how they are going to make money. But when they are employed, they have nothing but bad words for these companies.
    tons of people are NOT out of work because Specific corporate people are going without their salary to keep the company afloat.
    Which just makes one cast a side-eye at the corporations, and universities, and wealthy who are not sacrificing shit for anyone else's benefit.
    Jared Kushner, for example, his company is not allowing any tenant any slack on their rent, but the company IS asking their creditors for leniency in this time of disruption.
    I hopefully never want to hear leftists or progressives complaining about big businesses ever again.
    you're not paying attention, then.
    The company in Austin tgat wants to find out what $s their employees are ggetting from the stimulus bill SONTHRRY CAN DOCK THEIR PAY THAT MUCH?
    i can see talking bad about them for a while....

    dude, even when corporations are running, people become stressed and scared for money. And healthcare. Safety. Security. .

    If corporations were responsible they would have planned to avoid hiccups like SARS cov - 2 by developing safe workplaces for their employees so production wouldn't stop nor sales diminish when something like that came along. They probably should have planned for supporting their employees' children with safe schooling too, Hell. Henry Ford pioneered such back in the early 20th century.

    If anything, this pandemic shows how little corporations give a shit about people. News Limited is a huge company with influence that rivals most nations. Their message during this pandemic? It's okay for you to die so long as there is a bump in the stock market.

    I remember when movies like Repomen and Robocop were considered to be satire and not disturbingly prescient.

    I'm grateful to work for a company that does care-ish about its workers. And it is trying to cope with the situation to not get rid of workers. We are an 'essential' company (no we don't make porn) so we still can work, but there are potential issues regarding projects remaining open.

    One thing that bothers me is that outdoor construction is still a thing. Until the White House makes with a couple critical exec orders regarding consent decrees (though I'm not certain if even that can adjust things) or funding mechanisms (ie some projects need to be completed by some date to be qualified for Federal funding (and everything is funded federally, kind of sad really)) the work almost has to continue. Granted, it helps from laying people off as the US has refused to lift the economy on its back and instead is playing shell games.

    But still, work for a company that is trying to make things work, which is hard because its own funding is based on revolving credit which requires the checks and revenue to keep coming in. That isn't going to be easy... for the entire public works engineering industry.

    This virus has shown how important the little people that Halfie spits on are to the nation's well-being.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Let us know who's going to buy all the shit produced by these "important corporations" when everyone's out of a job.

    Say Damn. That OP really set me back a step. Then I got all misty-eyed. Thank you, OP, for a teachable moment. I really have been a smartass, superficial, unappreciative liberal socialist communist tard. But I can do better. I salute you, Monsanto! Bravo, DowDuPont!! Kudos, kudos, kudos, Philip Morris!! I will be better from this point forward. Today's agenda: thank you notes with gift vouchers to CinnaBon to the CEOs of the top 20 Fortune 500 companies. But first I've promised to watch a movie marathon with an on-line friend...Silkwood (1983), Roger and Me (1989), The Insider (1999), Super Size Me (2004), Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005), Food Inc. (2008), and something called Dark Waters (2019)...I wonder if that's about surfing.
