But when the big corporations lay off American workers they always say: “this isn’t personal, it’s business.” United we stand, I will not join AARP until it stops doing business with Big Businesses (Insurance Companies i.e. the Hartford Ins.) who out sources American workers for foreign India workers, etc. If people would stop joining, we would see corporations respect American workers, because… We the People are standing united against this abuse of corporate power. Hey, this isn’t personal; it’s the only business, big business understands.
OMG… Ex- Gov. Romney passed into law the Massachusetts Health Care bill, which forces the poor and middle class to obtain health insurance whether they can afford it or not! He taxed to death the state residents to fund the largest tunnel built leading into Boston. Now, the western half of his state’s infrastructure (Bridges and Roadways) are decaying, so commerce is not in its’ best shape.
When retail gasoline outlets post $5 per gallon before July and thereafter $5.75 per gallon, the wealthy right wing will have crushed the American economy. Stocks will loose what the wealthy middle class has feared most, reaching into their retirement savings.
Greed has overtaken common sense to do the right things, back when businesses paid taxes and not seek loop holes… example, when employers fraudulently lay off their American workers and then reclassify their job title, same tasks with additional work. The laid off worker has to reapply for their same job at a lower starting wage (up to 50% less). It gets worst for the working class taxpayers; employers receive a new hire tax break on rehires (tempts)!! The government does not record the employers laid off workers vs. new hires or what the laid off worker’s income was vs. the re-hire’s starting wages (same employee trying to keep their job reapplying for the same work). This is employment fraud!!! There isn’t one Federal Judge who will put a stop to this abusive business conduct. Companies are notorious for giving their employees an average cost of living increase only to nullify it by cutting back your work hours or suspending any future wage increases for several years.
Politicians are just as blind when towns and other states give big businesses property tax breaks for 5 to 10 years just to acquire them. That is morally wrong and should be illegal. After these new companies establish themselves in those towns, they end up hiring very few locals’ vs. relocating their faithfully following employees to the new state’s town. It gets worst, after their tax exemption of five or ten years expires, they threaten to move away if the towns or states don’t extend their tax exemption. Tax breaks for big businesses needs to be outlaw by every State in the Union. This is the only way to break the ‘No Tax Cycle’ of big businesses, which are financially hurting states and towns with their perfected method!
Who do you think pays for Fire, Police and Teachers services? American home owners, and with the town officials passing the tax burden onto them with higher property taxes, this will financially hurt everyone. In addition to higher mortgages and the higher property tax on the middle class, one can see why the housing bubble crashed in 2009. And, now those towns are worried about the failing infrastructure? Stop the madness because everyone has to pay taxes!!! Especially, businesses that are seeking property tax breaks from states and towns. If every state agreed to stop this nonsense, the US would be in the best financial economic shape and with the greatest infrastructure for commerce.
