      Yeah I dont think anyone is advocating for management to discuss it. Just normal employees who are on similar levels to each other.

      • So Elon tanked the crypto market but Coinbase saved it. They have said within 2 months Doge will be traded on their service. Doge went from upper 30s to almost 50 and Bitcoin and Ethereum all but erased their losses in the last 24 hours. My guess is Coinbase stock will rebound nicely because of this as well...lots of transactions to make money off of.

        There is a new "green" coin called Chia which involves no "mining" and uses hard drive space to verify coins as opposed to GPUs and CPUs so it uses almost no energy. It is already causing issues with hard drives in Asia. My buddy and I are actually getting into it cause the coins are quite valuable (though not useable really) and not that hard to come across.

        • The thing is, management already makes our ranges open to the employees for a grade up and down. Everyone is basically kept within +/- 5% of the median. If you're under, you get bumped at 2-3% a year.

          There's zero reason to discuss it. It has nothing to do with thinking I make the most or not. I know I don't. And I know women in my division have received promotions at about a 2:1 clip relative to size. They announce those openly as well. Plus with standardized titles, pretty easy to figure out.

          And management has zero issue discussing ranges even above the guidelines.

              • About that Amazon union vote…

                Testimony that Amazon.com Inc. had access to a mailbox installed for workers to vote in a recent union election could prompt the National Labor Relations Board to overturn the results, according to the agency’s former chair.

                During an NLRB hearing on Friday, employee Kevin Jackson said Amazon security guards used keys to open the mailbox, which was located near the entrance of the facility in Bessemer, Alabama.

                          That's how these things usually go. Accounting/billing systems will be less secure than pipeline control systems. A similar thing happened to a Norsk Hydro aluminum plant in Norway. They could continue to operate the plant, but couldn't ship orders or bill customers, so they had to shut down.

                          You can't really run a pipeline if you don't know where the orders are going, if there is capacity to receive them, etc

                              ATT paid $9M in bonuses for those who closed the Time Warner deal, only to have it fail 3 years later. While firing 3-5% of the WarnerMedia employees. If that isn't peak capitalism, I don't know what is.

                                ATT is one of the dumbest companies out there, and a joke as a telecommunications company. They could screw up getting laid in a whorehouse with an American Express Black Card and a wallet full of hundred dollar bills.

                                As someone who loves HBO Max this makes me happy as hell because I have had a sinking feeling for about a year they were going to run it into the ground.

                                BTW on another board I frequent it was mentioned this would open up like $20 billion in cash flow for TV and dividends.
