Corporate profits do not have to be shared by American workers. As long as they are paid the salary they were promised then they are entitled to nothing else - unless the management and shareholders - who's capital is at risk - decide to offer them a share of the profits. Now, most good enterprises have profit sharing - because it is generally good business - but this is a decision of the corporation and not the government.
"If we're fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line," President Obama told the Chamber of Commerce on Monday morning."
