I am a shareholder. How can I be more ruthless? #WeAreTheProblem
I overthink everything to make the world a happier place
I am a shareholder. How can I be more ruthless?
I have 71 shares in a national chain of supermarkets.
I am a fat cat shareholder.
This year, that supermarket chain will stop their staff from having paid breaks.
To make more money for their shareholders.
Which is me.
I could sell the shares.
But that's weak.
I don’t think they’re doing enough.
Not paying the staff for their breaks is a great idea.
It’s not as if they’re doing anything useful.
They’re just resting from making money for me.
How's that going to make more money for me?
Why aren’t we charging them for their uniforms, heat and light and falling below a certain speed?
Why am I even writing this?
We should make the staff come up with more ideas for making money from them.
And charge them banking fees on their wages.
No, pay the staff into the supermarket’s own bank, and then charge banking fees on that.
I know I got the shares when I was working there as staff, but they stopped that scheme to make it more profitable for shareholders - and I want more.
No good work is ever done on an in-breath.
Micropayments only on everyone's out-breaths.
I am an awesome shareholder.
I am so ruthless - I see your ruthlessness.
And I am gonna find even more ruth to lose.
What if I try and get my kid off video games? #WeAreTheProblem
All about me, and getting these by email.
