If one wants to understand just how the modern corporation exploits its workers just watch this clip from YouTube. A 17 year executive from Wal-Mart confesses his complicity in the Wal-Mart policy to exploit their workforce by some pretty underhanded policies and actions. I am going to let the video speak for itself.

Should anyone be surprised that Jeb Bush, the President’s brother and the former President’s son (oh gosh, I should leave him out of this mix) decided to go to work for a firm that is deeply involved in ethics abuse? Frankly, but quite unfortunately, I am not. While it must be difficult to turn away $37,000 per day as a salary, one must wonder what Jeb Bush must do to earn that kind of money. I hope it is to clean up the company Tenet Healthcare but somehow I doubt it.

I am constantly reminded by the antics of the Bush family that one should never tie one’s shoes in a watermelon patch. It gives the impression that one is about to steal watermelons, even if the intent is to simply tie one’s shoes. Appearances is everything in this world. We live and die by appearances. So Jeb, stop bending over to tie your shoes–You are in the middle of the watermelon patch.

A senior member of the Bush dynasty is about to get a large sum of money from a company with a history of ethical violations.
Jeb Bush, the president’s brother and former governor of Florida, is up for election Thursday as a director of troubled hospital chain Tenet Healthcare (THCCramer’s TakeStockpickrRating). Assuming he’s waved through, his pay in his first year would come to nearly $37,000 a day.
This is the same Tenet that had to pay $900 million to Uncle Sam last summer to settle charges that it had overbilled Medicare and Medicaid over many years.
Nine hundred million dollars.
The U.S. attorneys announcing the settlement accused the company of “fraud” and trying to “manipulate and cheat the system.”
Mike Leavitt, the Health and Human Services Secretary appointed by Jeb’s brother George, said the company had “fraudulently abused the Medicare program.”
It’s also the same Tenet that just paid $80 million to the IRS after an audit found it owed back taxes
