A corporation's sole existence is to create profits.
Borne out of the need for a way to generate passive wealth,
Corporations are ruthless money making machines and designed to mimic slavery.
Just like a slave master, a corporation does not value its employee.
Rather an employee is to be used until the end of its usefulness and to be quickly replaced with another employee.
Corporations are punished if they don't make more money year after year.
The CEO makes the most and is responsible for doing whatever it takes to make the stock price higher and higher.
So as the slave master, the CEO must increase profits by increasing sales or reducing expenses. Considering that a company's human resources is it's highest expense, it's natural that employees are the first victims in cost cutting measures.
Whether you have worked there for 20 years or 3 months, you can be replaced at the drop of a hat. There is no loyalty in a corporation, because a corporation has no feelings.
Corporations, like viruses, have evolved over the years. They are quick to expand and infiltrate the market. They are much more deceptive at pretending they care using marketing campaigns and catchy slogans. And just like any parasite, they are excellent at draining their human resources of all its worth with as little expenses as possible.
So when you hear that the stock market might crash. Don't despair. It's just another corporation that's being punished because some rich guy didn't make another dollar there.
