For many of Canada’s biggest corporations, the profits of shareholders seem to be more important than the retirement security of their workers.

Is that a surprise to anybody?

Companies are created for the sole purpose of creating money for the shareholders.

Retirement security, on the other hand, is the responsibility of individuals, not their employers.

yawn. More commie propaganda from Press Progress, written by people who couldn't run a lemonade stand.

So why should an employie pay into a company plan then ? And if thats true then is it false advertising when said companies advertise thst they do exist for othrr than sucking money from people .

Like when banks advertise we work for you ? Or ford advertises we work keeping you safe bla bla .according to you they are only there get money and are there for guilty of misleading everyone :130:

How many of these people would even have jobs if not for investors? If not for investors there would be no Google, no Facebook, no Apple, no Microsoft, no Amazon, and the list goes on and on... millions upon millions of jobs that wouldn't exist if it wasn't for investors yet people love to vilify them for expecting a return on their investment.

Become a shareholder. Many companies offer stocks for their employees as part of their benefits package. Free money :up:
Nobody wants to hear your opinion. They just want to hear their own opinion coming out of your mouth.

Employees don't have to, but in most cases, it's because it's quite beneficial and offers fund matching, like for every dollar that employee puts in the heartless soulless corporation puts another one for free.

And if thats true then is it false advertising when said companies advertise thst they do exist for othrr than sucking money from people .

I think it's rather a given for anybody who is not a nine year old or younger.

Yes, they're there to get your money.
