I think you could just about add any U.S. company to the list except for a few.
Corporate America is dismantling the middle class. Taking away benefits, giving 1 to 2% raises, Cut bonuses for the workers but management and the CEO's still get them.
Insurance deductables going up along with the annual cost. Some companies are forcing employees who carry their spouse on the insurance coverage to have the spouse drop and get their own "IF" they work and that their employer offers insurance. If they don't, they can stay on the policy.
Companies are truly bullying thier employees. making them fell that they have to work twice as hard, be on call 24/7, and work overtime for free.
my company pays every two weeks. If I work over, i must work 8 hours to get paid overtime / straight time since I'm salary. That means I can't work 4 hours one week and 4 the other. The 8 hours must fall within one of the weeks to get paid.
Some people have been told if they run out of work, they must go home and use their accrued (to date) PTO. No overhead charging. IF they have burned their current PTO, then they can stay at work and charge overhead. I'm Serious!
Even if my computer would go down and say it was to take 3 to 4 hours before I can work again. They expect me to go home and use PTO or not get paid. It's the company computer. They are responsible making sure the equipment is ready for us to use.
company employee activities have all been cancelled. No more Christmas party, no employee day at track or ballpark, no summer day cookout.
No moral boosting at all! it's all work work work work!
to have never have the events is one thing, but to have them for years and just drop them when your company is making money every year is just not right.
So much is going wrong in this country!!!
I know there are a lot of places that didn't make the list because I work in one! However our president got his bonus while the rest of us saw a big fat zero increase. We give until we have nothing left to give then give some more and our reward is a big fat zero. Oh but hey, I got a key chain and a pen for my 10 year anniversary. I would love to see our economy improve, but alas, we don't have the leadership for that and I'm not referring to only the POTUS, but our entire senate and congress. However, they voted themselves a tidy little COLA and guaranteed raise each year. They have no clue what the real world is like.
These are low paying service positions. Sadly, many Americans have to take this work because there just aren't the manufacturing jobs that there used to be. We can thank companies like Caterpillar that have moved a lot of their operations off shore, closed several plants in North America, and have cut jobs and wages and Oooooooh so much more over the last decade.
While there is no excuse for poor treatment of employees, one would expect that companies that hire specialized workers or pay middle class wages would stand by their ethics programs and codes of conduct... Sadly it doesn't matter. Unethical behavior and mistreatment of employees tends to be the norm, but the people with the higher paying jobs keep their mouth shut and put up with more crap because otherwise they would be flipping burgers for far less. So it is the service positions we hear most about. It used to be that those were starter jobs to gain experience and move up, but with the economy as it is, people are having to make careers out of them.
The two worst things about the environment is the lies by management and demand that you be happy with what you have. Sure, any job is better then no job but when you hear that Ginni had did not get a bonus and had to survive on her $13 million tips the bucket.

The S&P 500 (+0.1%) sits just above its flat line with five sectors showing gains, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (+0.2%) outperforms. Small-cap stocks have not been as fortunate with the Russell 2000 (-0.5%) spending the first half of action below its flat line.
