This past Friday was “Steal Something from Work Day”, did you participate? Glenn had the story on radio this morning.
According to the cause’s website, they say:
Does your boss work less than you but take home a bigger paycheck? Is somebody zipping around in a private jet at your expense? If the corporation is making money at the end of the day, that means they’re not paying you the full value of your labor – that’s where corporate profit comes from! So if you need something in your workplace, take it. You earned it!
Based on their rationale, companies should be making zero profit. That’s a great incentive for a company to stay in business!
“It's not charity. Nobody's losing money. You just don't make any money,” Glenn said. “Have you never read Marx? That's the way it works.”
“You know what's great? Is if you could just steal enough from yourself, from your place of business. You could go into business for yourself, and then you could make no profit or if you do, you could have somebody steal it from you. So they could live their dreams. Oh this is going to work out so well,” Glenn joked.
