[QUOTE=debro;2178814]They are making profit - they just aren’t making enough profit to keep their investors satisfied. Therefore the company is NOT going in insolvency or bankruptcy.
If you insist.
Spare the Sob story.
I don’t know any Mature-Aged people that have unprofitable shares and are living under the poverty line. I’d suggest these are already the least affected people in the crisis, as they are financially comfortable, have a few stocks … and are not solely relying on these dividends for their living and generally have minimal exposure to the financial crisis. They can spare the cash. The ivory back-scratcher, and other bonus’s the dividends provide, will have to wait until next christmas.
*Now, the filthy rich are absolutely devastated, because they do rely on dividends for their living.
Compare that to a bunch of younglings with no shares, a crappy day job working at a computer shop, that are living from day to day barely able to cover their utility, rent & food bills, and now being fired.

Those younglings probably live at home and have no rent, utility bills or food costs. Maybe BestBuy should target those people first. If we are going to redistribute income then lets find the employees that have rich parents and give them the axe first and then work our way up to the employees who are single mothers and orphans. They are probably the last ones that should be laid off. Maybe we need to appoint a “BestBuy Tsar” to keep things fair and define exactly what rich constitutes.
