Why are those ratios going the wrong way? What is the level of actual competition in most market segments? How many companies are restricted in what they can pay and benefits because unions and laws force them to keep undesirable employees? Are companies really that non-compassionate or is it a case of media exaggeration of a biased issue?
Walmart, Lowes and many other companies have many people who started at or near the bottom but are now in management and worked their way up. Why is it the ones that are unable to do so we always see complaining on the news? Why do we only see or hear about the stories that feed hysteria and focus on expanding socialist like controls?
