These types of corperations and their dealings have destroyed the American economy by screwing over the little guy with their douchebaggery. They screw everyone in their path all in the name of greed.
Have you been working for Corporate America too? After you work for a corporation for more than a year you start to realize that greed is the driving factor for ever single thing they do... nothing else matters.
LOL, thats exactly what I said to a friend earlier today. In fact as I recall, didn't new line claim they didn't owe anything because the money was supposed to be a percentage of the net, and they said they didn't make any net money on the LotR trilogy? (aka hollywood math, kinda like music studio math)
Were I work (for the Evil Empire) we call that fuzzy math. Meaning they can spin the numbers to mean whatever it is they want them to mean. Even if it make no sense what so ever. For example... I am graded on ten different factors to determine what my over-all productivity is. Half of those factors are controlled by the company. It's the same reason why the Union had the team award removed from the contract because the company would constantly spin the info and short us on our bonus. The less money they give to employees the more money they get to keep... greed is good, if you're already filthy rich.
Nothing new here. And I agree it's the greed of the filthy rich that has ruined this country and our economy. From the corruption in our government to the CEOs running these douchebag companies.
