There are examples of corporate sponsership everywhere.
There are nonprofits that survive on corporate sponsership.
Look at the signs at the ball diamonds. Look at Hope house or Ronald Mcdonald House.
Hmmmm, I'm at the Ronald McDonald House a lot over the holidays, and while there is corporate sponsorship is it not all corporate sponsorship. There are a lot of individual donors listed there as well. And, I believe when the original house was built a lot of the trade unions donated their time.
At the next event in the Village look at the signs.
Let's not confuse a small line in a brochure, or mention from the MC, with a large sign or banner. One is sponsorship, the other is advertising. Sponsorship with a large sign or banner is like putting lipstick on a
I dont understand the hatred of what gives us our lives....
I don't understand how ignorant some can be towards the concept that workers need a living wage in order to live...
Hard work should be rewarded.
Yes it should. Tell that to a farmer - hardest working people you'll ever know, and business people who take a chance (not only crop prices, but weather), yet screwed over by corporate executives.
People that take a chance at business and succeed should not be demonized they should be praised.
Ah, now your true colors are really showing. Praise the business owner, so give the shaft to the worker?
If you have problems with an Individual Corp Director buy a share of stock and go to a meeting. I went to the last M & I shareholders meeting. It was crazy but since there have been changes.
You were there too?!?!?!?! Wow, we have something in common (along with a former county supervisor from Greendale whose name I won't mention). It wasn't crazy, but it was fun seeing those over-paid execs get grilled for an hour. I'm sorry, but I don't see a whole lot of changes happening so far... the executive compensation wasn't cut. And like issuing more stock will help. Dividend is still a penny a share.
And, um, hate to tell you this, but neither of the guys at the podiums was named Marshall or Ilsley (the original risk takers). No risk takers there with Kuester and Furlong. Did you actually speak at the meeting (as I did), or just snicker at all the concerned shareholders airing their complaints?
I found it funny how they mentioned how much they give to charity, yet they cut 800 employees. Guess it lets them sleep at night.
