Corporations Don’t Care About Their Workers
For them, workers are easily replaceable
Companies care about one thing, their profits. As long as their profits keep raising, no matter the price, everything will be fine. They aren’t significantly affected at all when an employee quits. They can replace him in no time.
Thus, they can have their employees working on some of the most laborious, boring, repetitive, and stressful jobs. Only to pay them the bare minimum for doing them. I believe that if they had the opportunity, they would lower it with no hesitation.
What are the employees going to do? Quit? Well, good luck finding a new job. We have more than enough applicants to replace you. That is what most companies think.
I am so tired of their selfishness. I am fully aware that we are greedy beings. We are motivated by our survival instinct and a never-ending quest to be happy. But, the hires ups and heads from big companies are completely corrupted by greed. They only want to see the zeros in their bank accounts increase.
I know that not all companies are greedy and try to do good. Unfortunately, these are the minority or do it to gain a good public reputation and not because they truly want to change the world for the better.
Companies are very selective on what employees are worth keeping. These are the more skilled, specialized workers and the higher-ups. But, what about everyone else?
They are the paws in the game of life. They are the most common and less skilled. But, they have the potential to become whatever they want. And there lies the problem. The higher-ups don’t care about what someone can do or be in the future. They only want them for what they can do to benefit the company now.
The worst part is that a big part of the population must work for those corporations to survive. They don’t have many options. Losing their job could lead them to extreme poverty. Thus, companies can have them do some of the hardest under skilled work and get away with paying them the least as possible.
That is why I like small businesses. Yeah, not all of them are employee-friendly. But, you can tell that because of the closer connection between the owner and the employees. The owners seem to care more about their employees and would like them to stay by their side.
In the end, it is not worth overworking yourself for a minimum wage, for a corporation or company that could care less about their low-skilled employees. Unfortunately, that is the world we live in. I hope that in the future we would have better work opportunities.
That is why we are encouraged to get a higher education. So, we don’t have to work at those jobs that society undervalues. And, I don’t like how we stigmatize the people that do those jobs. They are trying to survive, and we should cut them some slack. They do deserve more respect, not be pointed by a mother who tells her children that if they don’t study, they will end up like the McDonalds employees.
