Strange that you mention 30% of corporations with gross receipts over $50 billion paid no taxes. Well, you might be interested to know that tax computations are NOT based on gross receipts! They are based on net gross revenue which is quite a different animal. And, since you purposely are trying to mislead on this point, what else have you thrown in that is not true, half true, or a flat out lie.

I'm not clear how boosting workers wages would boost demand and create jobs...that is not what creates most jobs. If you boost workers pay then you also reduce corporation profits. if corporation profits are reduced then it is likely that the number of employees would be reduced to bring the bottom line back up to the desired point.

And, the drop in pay per hour wages over the last few years is more likely caused by the reduced number of hours that employees are working...if a worker use to work 50 hours (remember that 10 hours of that would be paid at 150% of normal pay rate). And, if the workers work week is reduced to 40 hours, the additional 10 yours of overtime at an inflated rate are no longer computed into the hourly rate, hence making lower per hour wages. A lot of this has been done to keep from having to lay off a lot of workers.

And, you are really stupid if you think the bargaining power of unions is the answer for employees getting higher salaries. It is the market place that has the best and most impact on employees wages. When there is an increase of demand for more employees due to an increase in production, then the corporation must offer high wages and better benefits to attract employee. Almost all of the high paying jobs in America are Non-Union. What Unions will do is strap an employer with some employees they can't get rid of when they are not productive. Union contracts limit the authority and control of a corporation over it's own employees. Unions also strap a heavy burden on corporations for benefits and retirement pensions. There is a reason a lot of corporations are no longer profitable in the USA and either file for bankruptcy or relocate overseas...UNIONS. When a corporation gets weighted down by all the Union Contract Terms, they are eithered reduced in their capacity to compete or they no longer can compete. So, don't give me all the 'Sugarcoated Union Greatness'...Unions have outgrown their usefullness and are really a hindrance most times.

So, the Occupiers are the answer to a national action to protect and advance the wellness of American workers? You 'are' talking about those people that are fornicating, masturbating, pooping, stealing in public places, hindering companies from operating properly and getting thrown in jail for being a public nuisance and breaking all kinds of laws....those are the folk we should look to, to advance employees well-being? Even before you made that statement, I could already see that you are pushing the Socialist/communist/Union Agenda. But this last statement not only shows how dimwitted and unimformed you are, but also reveals your extreme left wing lunacy.
