Response to Recursion (Reply #2)

5. Here is what needs to change

 

At an all employee meeting at my place of employment (a multinational conglomerate) the following was stated by the company CEO (slightly paraphrased because I did not record it)

"There is a new class of investor who does not care about employees, does not care about our families, does not care about what the company is doing, does not care about the environment, and does not care about our local communities. They only care about short term gain on our stock price. We need to do everything in our power to give them their desires. It is essential that every employee at our various companies maintain the same thought process as our investors. Their desires trump all."


This is what the fight is about.
