This thread begins by asking everyone to post 'good' corporations :mental: and of course they pick the most liberal companies out there which the most capitalist hating of them also attack. Man, it sucks to be lib...so many rules of moral behavior..why it's almost..legalistic :o

10. Whole Foods
   
They treat their workers well. They have a salary cap for their executives. The CEO makes $1 a year. They do a lot for their local communities. They are environmentally friendly. They have two great foundations, etc.

So the CEO's salary is actually hidden? Way to go, libs or are you all trying to tell me he really lives on $1 a year? Yeah, right and if that was all, where are they crying for his/her 'living wage'?  :loser:

and a little jewel for Frank in there

Just sulked in my room and told the cat he was the only one who understood me.

He didn't understand me. Because he was a cat.

Everytime A DUmmies comments on corporate America...the first and only thing that comes to mind is:

Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years.  The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

If it walks like a donkey and brays like a donkey and smells like a donkey - it's Cold Warrior.  - PoliCon



Palin has run a state, a town and a commercial fishing operation. Obama ain't run nothin' but his mouth. - Mark Steyn

Yep, that's what happened in that thread too. They were basically left with 'Mom's trinket store' which is more likely to a Sole Proprietorship and not a proper corporation.

Although there have been obvious abuses in power, they don't seem to grasp there is a reason to provide higher ranking folks in a corporation with indemnity in most cases and it is because a lot of decisions that they make can technically 'hurt' people...layoffs, cutbacks, and even growth situations. Without indemnity a CEO would face being sued PERSONALLY for things that really are everyday high level decisions in the corporation. I think their stand is obnoxious when you consider they don't think individuals should have any responsibility over REAL personal needs like healthcare and even providing food for oneself.

btw, sorry, I pressed submit too soon on the original reply

I wonder what constitutes a DUmmie's opinion of "treating their employees well"? Because they cap out their executives salaries means they treat everyone else "well"?

We've got a Whole Foods where I live, and to be honest, I'm not too impressed with it. I think it's over priced and not any better than your everyday grocery store. And, I'm not so gung-ho about "organic" foods. Sounds kind of like a gimmick.

And Starbucks...don't get me wrong, it is good coffee, but again, it's way overpriced coffee.

I am seeing a pattern here....
