Re: ever

How many employees these days get automatic 5-6% pay raises per year? How many employees can unilaterally decide raise their own pay? Not many these days... Groups of employees that have such pay arrangements are considered by the right wing of this country to be parasites and have been targeted for elimination. However, when a corporation does the same thing its lassie fair capitalism at its finest.

Exactly.

What we are seeing here is UNfettered GREED, nothing else.

Not only that I agree with the other poster that mentioned that for the price of pay tv there is almost NOTHING worthwhile on it for the money anymore. Yet the prices keep going up, while the programming quality keeps going down, and the number of ads is increasing during the program time.

I've had enough a couple of years ago and cut the cord.

Now my internet provider is trying to goose me on my internet cost. Even though I was happy with a lower speed tier they won't offer it anymore so they expect me to pay higher prices for higher speeds I don't want or NEED.

Next up I'll be getting rid of my internet subscription as well.

These companies think people are so addicted to pay tv and internet that they will empty their pockets to keep it.

I'll be happy to prove them wrong, when the prices get unreasonable I walk.

Welcome to capitalism, the free market, human nature...take your pick.

Consumer goods and services in a free market society that is not under a monopoly will naturally find a balance between what companies need to charge to cover their costs and make a profit, and what consumers are willing to pay.

I'll be happy to prove them wrong, when the prices get unreasonable I walk.

So, with that logic since you presumably aren't walking now after this raise, then you find the price not unreasonable. Interesting.
