Dividends, Corporations, and Greed
To top things off, the company continually publishes messages on its intranet page that is readily available to all employees about how well the company is doing, that it is raising its dividend and it is sitting on mountains of cash. There is no mention about when the employees will get their much deserved compensation in the form of raises, bonuses, and 401(k) matches. As a matter of fact it comes as a slap in the face to these employees to read all of this “great” information about the company they work for while they are all getting the short end of the stick.
Even though this is a hypothetical story, what would you think if you were an employee in this situation?
