Not sure why or how tremendous wealth or a stock price that has tripled means he has to treat his employees better.


I inherited my Dad's business the first thing I did was fire 3 people, get rid of spousal health care, and chop a weeks vacation. You know what? They thanked me for it. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, I make sure to pick someone out and yell at them for no reason other than it makes me feel good. My company has never been more profitable.

So, I agree, there's absolutely no correlation between treating your employees in a courteous and generous manner and increased worker production and satisfaction.
