Bosses Steal a Staggering Amount From Their Employees

Business  (tags: wage theft, employee, employer, bosses steal, labor laws )

When an employee is caught stealing from a boss, the consequences are often swift, and with at-will employment, not subject to appeal. When a boss steals from an employee, however, it is a bit more complicated.

This situation offers a really glaring example of how people from different classes do not receive equal treatment under the law, and the article points out that this really should be a goal. Of course you might know that under Trump, there will be less oversight than ever, and no one in his administration is going give a damn. Immigrants – especially undocumented ones – are at the greatest disadvantage of all. Thanks Dandelion.

One would believe that the "Fat Cats" had enough money but apparently NOT.

The Greedy Heartless Ones never seem to have enough Arild, I'm sure they'd steal the piss pot if they could do so and it brought them a coin. For those who didn't know, the poor in the past would sell their pee as it was a part of the tanning process, perhaps this is still done in 3rd world Nations. Ever hear the term "piss poor" that is where it was started. Was all some families had to sell and survive on.

And I know of some cases considered employee theft where it was their supervisors or managers who were ripping the company off and getting rid of any they thought wouldn't cover for them or participate in the graft. If corporations have individual rights when it comes to religion and other constitutional right aspects, they should also be held to the felony standards of criminal law IMO. Thanks Dandelion

Thanks Dandelion for sharing the link to the article by Charles Davis. The perfect example is Trump himself.

Got that one John, now look at how he is making money using his position as President.

Stories like this are a must-read for those who still have faith in capitalism. We need to move away from a system that allows wealth to be concentrated in just a few hands. I'm all in favor of business and free enterprise, but the Working Class is the REAL lifeblood of commerce. The working class is entitled to legal protection so they can earn living wages and thus not have to depend on some public dole. Rise up, resist and persist!

Greedy as*holes. May they rot in Hel* for their sins. That includes Trump too. Thanks Dandelion

It gets even worse when organisations outsource - they benefit from the work but bear no (legal) responsibility for the non-payment. (I had $18,000 stolen by an Italian company handling a contract on behalf of UNICEF - I've never been paid. UNICEF could have pressured the company to fulfil their contract by paying the consultants the fees owed ... holding back the final payment until all were paid. But they took the position that they were not legally obliged since the consultants contracts were signed with the Italians. I don't understand how they reconcile knowing that the budget item approved specifically for consultants' fees was used for some other - personal - purpose with their "principles" of transparency & accountability for moneys donated to UNICEF ....)

Sorry to read this. More and more the theft is happening to people in big and small amounts, directly and indirectly we are being robbed. Only the wealthy seem to be able to make sure they don't get taken, I recall Bernie Madoff, the only one to be sent to prison because he stole from the rich, they got him but the rest of us who lost homes, jobs, money, pensions, what happened to you Evelyn, no one seems to be there for us or to hold the bigger guy accountable.

For over a year, it was friends (and not necessarily close friends, but good souls who saw there was a problem) who were there for me for any urgent "extras" -
Which reconfirmed what previously had been a theoretical belief that most people are fundamentally "good", but became first hand experience!!

But the system - & supposedly one "committed to "good" - let me down heavily. And not just me. The Italian company cheated about 38 consultants (on four or five different contracts) - then merged/ sold their "new" contracts to a large groups of similar companies - who of course claimed they didn't buy the contracts that concerned us! And who weren't at all worried that they took over the staff members responsible for cheating us all!! So clearly, ethical treatment of people who do work for them isn't one of their priorities, either ...

I have found that to be the case in my life as well Evelyn, people I hardly knew came forward in amazing ways when my husband was battling his cancer to when he took his journey to the Star Nation. Some of those that I had expected to be there for me, said they would be, even to my dying husband, were nowhere to be found.

Bad enough when these cut throat businesses rob their employees one would have hoped better from the one you were working for.

I think that that was the hardest part, Dandelion. I'd been donating to them for many years, believed that their driving principle was "human", so the "disillusion" was (& still is) enormous. I know that most people working at country level would totally reject the mindset we encountered with NY levels; but I still can't bring myself to donate, or even buy their fund-raising products, now. :>(

The theft also continues when one goes to collect a pension. GE is giving me a third of what others who worked the same amount of time are getting. My crime? I was not in the union.
