The exodus has begun at Sysco Detroit. Several young up and coming Sales Consultants have already left and I know of at least 6 more who are days away from pulling the trigger. My manager said he was glad they didn't roll this out when the economy was humming because there would have been a mass exodus. What a joke this once great company has become. Very sad!

How many of these reps will go to your competitors and take their customers with them?

I left a month ago. Different opco but the same song and dance. I actually cashed in my retirement and bought one of my accounts. Even with COVID my sales are up and over 10k weekly...breakfast and lunch only. I don’t miss sales one bit. Houston has a f’ing problem!!!

Wake up people and join the populist movement gaining momentum through the country. It’s not about politics, it’s about earning a living to provide for your families. The large corporations and elite politicians of “both” major parties have their wealth and are simply managing the decline on the backs of the lower/middle class. Get organized in you local/county/state governments and make change happen.

Earning a "living" unrealistic if immigration continues uncontrolled.

Both the democrats and republicans keep giving out visas like nothing.
Folks fly in, overstay visas, then next group flys in and overstays.
Border wall does not stop airplanes.

Never ending cycle causing a glut of illegals in this country depressing wages working as "corporations"/"independent contractors".
They want your job not cleaning toilets or picking produce.

Both dems and republicans have turned this country into shit.
25+ million people with no job
Great for business tho! Cheap labor
Washington does not care about middle class.

Unfettered capitalism turned this country to shit.  As soon as we were able to shop out to other countries for cheap labor, materials, and industrial needs we shut out the lower and middle class.

@ spilt milk agree completely w/that statement although I will parse one of the words chosen. I believe you intended to use globalism rather than capitalism. 

@ tread no doubt both parties have let much of America down. There is a path forward, but it will not be an easy one.

There are more bail outs going on than one could ever imagine. One thing this pandemic has accomplished is it has covered up or diverted attention away from the complete bankruptcy of the transatlantic system. In fact this bankrupt system over the decades of it's existence is at the cause of the Covid19 virus. 

The Fed Is Buying the Bonds of Corporations To Prop Up Speculative System

July 3 —U.S. Federal Reserve announced that it has bought $429 million of individual bonds of 86 corporations—some of them the biggest corporations in the world—as part of its ongoing effort, dating back to mid-September of last year, to bail out, through quantitative easing, the bankrupt world speculative system.

The Fed deployed its “Secondary Market Corporate Debt Facility,” part of its $750 billion Corporate Credit Facility, created earlier this year, to buy the bonds of AT&T, and Comcast, and presented a list of 800 corporations whose bonds it has bought or will buy in the coming weeks: Nike, Apple, Microsoft, Walmart, ExxonMobil, Paypal, Target, Fox Media Corp, Toyota Motors, Ford Motors, Volkswagen. Some of these are the largest corporations in the world, and presumably solvent; why is the Fed buying their bonds? There appear to be three reasons:

First, to bail out the $9-10 trillion corporate bond market, which has a significant degree of insolvency, with the downgrading to junk status of an increasing number of companies that had considerable problems before the COVID-19 crisis. When the Fed gave a whiff of the possibility that it might buy corporate bonds in March of this year, investors purchased $1 trillion of new corporate bonds in the first half of 2020, predominantly in the second quarter, and including $160 billion of outright junk bonds. Bankrupt companies like Macy’s could now sell bonds, and Boeing, which was hit very hard by the problems of its 737 Max aircraft and the airline industry’s downturn, suddenly floated a huge $25 billion bond offering.

Second, it was intended to offset the growing wave of bankruptcies. U.S. businesses recorded 722 business Chapter 11 bankruptcies in April, and 487 such bankruptcies in May. The Fed is not particularly concerned about the bankruptcy of smaller businesses, except as that may affect the insolvent “credit markets.” But it wanted to ensure that larger companies that are in bankruptcy — JCPenney, J Crew, Diamond Offshore Drilling, Whiting Petroleum — or near bankruptcy — such as Ford Motor Company — not fail, and pull down the corporate bond market.

Third, the Fed wants to pump up the speculative stock market. The Dow Jones Industrial Average bloated up to an all-time high in February at 29,551, before falling under the COVID-19 pandemic to 18,500 on March 23. The Fed trumpeted the following message: buy the stocks of companies, because if that company’s debt (i.e., its bonds) gets into trouble, the Fed will bail it out. The Dow skyrocketed.

The Fed is working overtime to keep interest rates near zero. This hyperinflationary arrangement, on which the Fed is advised by BlackRock, does not improve the situation; it sucks wealth from the U.S. economy.

Election year.

Whichever party loses in election, the other is left with the deficit who will raise taxes on the middle class.

States will nail people with sales/property taxes.
Regardless if home owner or renter.
