    Wouldn't that make you a socialist?

    No because I want them to earn it and not just be handed it. I want it to happen within the capitalism framework.

    So are you just suggesting that ownership (stock holdings) shouldn't be concentrated with the few (the rich)? Or are you suggesting that most corporations should be worker-owned?

    I've never been a big fan of the idea that companies should be owned by the workers, other than for small family businesses. It's a model that doesn't really seem to work that well, or else we'd have more of it.

    Oh ok, so it would be private property and just worker owned. Those kind of businesses I never really understood how they stay in business. Just grabbing people off the street and giving them equal say in your business is extremely risky.

    I have lived in places where kroger was unionized and places where it wasn't. The only real difference I saw was that where it was unionized, there were middle aged people bagging groceries and where it wasn't, they were teenage/college aged.

    That video is hilarious. And most likely the actors are union members.
