Yeah...it's not the CEOs setting their own remuneration, they just ask for it. The board of directors, and by extension the voting shareholders are the ones who accept huge offers to attract their must-have employee. It's an arms race between corporates, offer to pay less and another entity will...
Saw a figure the other day that something like four fifths of industrial espionage in America is assumed to be Chinese in origin.
Probably pales in comparison to all the things they force foreign companies to do in China, if they want to buddy up with a local manufacturer.
Sometimes I do feel kinda sorry for corporates like Google and the relentless torrent of filth and complaints they have to deal with. Commanding the tide to stop, really.
Then I remember the last half dozen kneejerk demonetisations and copyright strikes, and I stop feeling pity for them.
Can Amazon run a service where you press a button on their app, and a drone whooshes out of their warehouse to drop you a can of bear spray in a timely manner?
Sounds like an idea. Why carry hiking equipment when you can walk unencumbered and let the robots do the hard work?
Dang, they had to cut a big mushroom of cartilage out of me.
Maybe they should have offered it to you guys secondhand? If I can figure out how to keep growing the stuff, this could turn into a business model!
Where I am, the issue is that they DIDN'T protect the taxi cartel.
It was legally impossible to operate a taxi without a bunch of background checks, extra certifications and a fee (well into six figures) to the state government for an accreditation.
Yet, mysteriously, the ride-share services...
I'm always pretty sceptical over things like wind farms making people crap their pants or grow tumours. But it does sound like a poor implementation with a rather dismissive attitude...
It is kind of amazing, I consider myself to be very poor and slow at mental arithmetic. But a few times now, cashiers have taken my note+coin and fussed about getting multiple notes and coins, instead of the ONE note that would have made perfect change...
Very corporate. The worst intimidation, bullying and general unpleasantness in the workplace can take place without a single profanity being uttered, but big companies can't detect "tone", or if they did, it would just be a managerial excuse to punish someone for an unfalsifiable crime.
People calling it paedophilia to marry a 16 year old cartoon...wow.
I guess you must be reformed characters, because I can pretty well guarantee many of your ancestors were in a marriage that young. Age gap is not the same thing as paedophilia. Guess this must be an American thing, though I...
One of the worst indirect consequences of this, is that the West becomes entirely hypocritical when it tries to portray China as overly controlling when it comes to social media and the curtailing of speech the government dislikes.
No moral authority remaining at all
