I'm not sure if I predicted this out loud, but I did predict this. Really, honestly I did. I saw this story in the New York Post, Frugal Google Cuts Perks. The mighty giant of office perks is tightening their belt. Google is famous for giving its employees lots of perks. Particularly, food. And I'm not talking about a big selection of vending machines. We are talking full service cafeterias. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and how can I forget afternoon tea on Tuesdays. Google, no surprise, has been voted as a great place to work. But, now with the economy going south it's time to stop losing profits. Google isn't losing money though. Their Net Income is actually going up. They are just exhibiting corporate greed. Cut perks before profits. I'm sure the Google employees are well paid and work hard. They produce a great product. But, corporations are always more loyal to shareholders than employees. Google shares were selling at a high of $741 a year ago. Today, right now they are at $365. Don't worry though, there is still plenty of profit. This is what is killing America and all global markets, greed. I don't pretend to have an answer that will make things better. I just know that the way it is done now doesn't work.
