WE CAN ALL SEE WHO IS CRAP!
..... and it ain't the CBI.
I don't agree with everything said by the CBI, but then again, I don't agree with everything said by anyone! The CBI surveys are regularly conducted and the results come directly from those with their finger on the pulse of British business of all kinds. It is wrong to assume that the 80 people in the survey are the bosses of the biggest companies. In fact, CBI surveys are sent out to members of all sizes and I guess that they had 80 responses to that particular question.
A long time ago my company was a member of the CBI. We were one of the smallest companies to be a member. The CBI were very helpful to us in many ways. `They gave advice, the found suppliers, they found contact details for potential customers all over the world. They certainly helped us to increase our export sales. So, bottom line, they helped us to provide more good jobs for local people.
I dislike what happened with the banks as much as the next guy. I think it is obscene that they are paying bonuses before they have paid back the taxpayer who bailed them out! I also think it is obscene that anyone has a salary of more than a million pounds a year while we have people on our streets selling the Big Issue! Maybe I should suggest a National MAXIMUM Wage to balance the National MINIMUM Wage. What do you think?
The one thing I don't do is employ those type of scum who think its okay to spend the day chatting, or using the internet, or their mobile phone. Those who bleat about needing more money and pointing fingers at some who earn more then them. Spend more time working and the recession goes away, wages go up and job security goes back to being almost a certainty. Sure the boss might make more than you, but, was it your house that stood as guarantee for the banks to get the needed investment into the company? Were you the one putting in the 16 hour days?
If you want the bosses money, get off your arse and get to work building your own business --- otherwise, I suppose you have just two choices:-
1. Shut the fuck up and get your nose down!
or, 2. Continue to live in the squalor you think is someone else's fault!
