I do know that if my company made the profits these guys made we would benefit from the profit sharing. Even at a 0.1% distribution I could retire!
Actually, their profit margin is comparable to other industries. In some cases, considerably less.
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
