When Henry Ford doubled wages, he wasn't being taxed @ 35%,no union, there was no health care attached, no government gas milage dictate, or safety standards either - so why post some LA LA dream? Wake up.

DEAR AMERICAN COMPANIES: Here's How To Fix The Economy

In 1914, a business executive named Henry Ford did a startling thing:

He announced that he was going to more than double the wages he was paying his employees, from $2.34 to $5 a day--the equivalent of $120 a day in today's money.

The country was as shocked by this then as it would be today.

A powerful company voluntarily sharing some of its profits with its rank-and-file workers and paying them more than it absolutely had to?

Had Henry Ford gone mad?

Didn't he understand that the only goal of a business was to make money?

Didn't he realize that, as a successful business executive, he was entitled to make as much money as he could possibly make--the financial health of his employees being nobody's business but their own?

Didn't he understand that smart executives pay their employees no more than "market rates" because the executive's job is to "create shareholder value," everyone in our economy gets what they deserve, and the financial well-being of employees is not something that business owners or bosses or shareholders should be concerned with?

Yes, Henry Ford understood all that.

The story you hear frequently about why Henry Ford made this decision was that he wanted to allow his workers to be able to afford to buy his cars. The wage increase certainly made the cars (and many other products) more affordable for Ford employees, but the historical consensus is that Ford actually made this decision for a different reason: To reduce employee turnover--and, in so doing, reduce recruiting and replacement cost.

Regardless, it worked.

Thousands of people immediately lined up to get jobs at Ford. Employee turnover plummeted, and recruiting and training costs dropped. The new wages allowed Ford employees to live middle-class lives, instead of being poor. And it presumably made Ford, Ford's senior executives, and Ford's shareholders even more proud of what they had created.

In short, instead of viewing "shareholders" and "customers" as the only two corporate constituencies that matter, Ford introduced the idea that great companies should also serve a third constituency:


And because one company's employees are another company's customers, Ford's decision helped spread the country's wealth to more citizens and expand the purchasing power of the country as a whole. And, in so doing, it helped the overall economy.

Specifically, Ford's unprecedented move also helped usher in an age in which the middle class became the driving force in the American economy, turbo-charging the nation's economic growth right up through the early 1980s, when relative middle class wages began to decline.

Henry Ford's story is highly relevant today.


Henry Ford Model T

I have a radical idea. I'm going to pay my people more than I have to.

Because we are facing a very similar economic problem as the country did in the early 20th century. A glut of labor was allowing companies to pay a pittance for a day's work, leaving most of their dedicated employees destitute. Business owners and executives (the equivalent of today's 1%) did fine, but most rank-and-file workers did not. And this lack of spending power in the middle class crimped overall economic growth.

If we want to fix today's ailing U.S. economy, we need many of our large corporations to do what Henry Ford voluntarily did:

Share more of their vast wealth with their rank-and-file employees.

If the companies don't eventually see the benefit of doing this and do it voluntarily, the government (an extension of the people) will likely the mandate that they do it--either through taxation or by radically increasing the national minimum wage.

And given that government solutions are often terrible solutions, it would be best for everyone if we persuaded corporations to do this voluntarily. So what follows is an initial effort to do that.

HOW TO FIX THE ECONOMY? Think Like Henry Ford

Some people argue that the way to fix the economy is to give tax cuts to the highest-earning Americans--the "job creators"--so that they can invest in new companies and create jobs.

Well, we'd all like to pay fewer taxes, but unfortunately, the "tax cuts for the rich" approach almost certainly won't work. Here are a few reasons why:

The richest Americans and companies already have plenty of cash
The reason these rich Americans and companies aren't investing and "creating jobs" is that most American consumers (customers) are broke
Rich Americans actually don't "create jobs"--the whole economy creates jobs
We've been trying the "tax cuts for the rich" approach for three decades, and it is making the inequality problem worse, not better

Now, some other people are arguing that the way to fix the economy is to increase taxes on the rich and companies and "redistribute" this wealth to American consumers.

We will probably need to raise taxes on everyone a bit to reduce the budget deficit (even if we reduce spending--the gap is that big), but this "wealth redistribution" approach also almost certainly won't work. Here are a few reasons why:

The key to creating a sustainable economic recovery is to get the private-sector cranking, not the public sector
Having the government collect taxes and write checks to more than half the country to make things "fairer" will understandably ruffle the feathers of those who are paying those taxes
Class warfare won't help anyone
This is America: We solve our own problems in this country--we don't wait for someone else to come along and give us a handout.

So, then, if the answer isn't 1) cutting taxes for rich Americans and companies, or 2) raising taxes on the rich and giving the money to the poor, what's the answer?

Let's go back to the problem.

Here's the problem in one simple chart:

Corporate profits (blue) are at an all-time high, and American wages (red) are at an all-time low.

More proof that the middle class is toast.

yeah it is a result of obamacare. Part time workers dont get benefits so companies can hire without having to cover people. Hence they go and get their own they can barely pay for cause they dont have enough hours in a week to cover basic necesseties. How can you not see this? You can make 15 bucks an hour but if you are only doing 20 per week what good is it?

Companies have been hiring part time long before Obama was even in office. It is the old dodge to avoid paying people any benefits at all. I liked the comment that company wants you to bend over and take it. Many companies want loyalty and reliability but don't reciprocate. But the Affordable Care Plan lets even part-time employees to purchase reasonable health insurance. I am a supporter of a Single Payer Plan and I hope one day it becomes the law of the land.

Corporate America is making record profits and offering less pay and benefits. It's all about GREED...............

Sorry, but this is not due to Obama care. Companies have been treating their workers like slaves for decades. It was shortly after 9-11 and King George Bush gave the corporate power elites the go ahead to start waging all out class warfare. How quickly people forget, short term memories. Of course Obama is also a part of that same elite network, Obama has been pretty much business as usual. About the only thing Obama had fault hard for other than the rich is for gay rights.

It's really hard work, but it pays my bills? LOL! Absurd. Part time Chipotle pays your bills , huh? You must not have many bills. Do you lie at home with mommy and daddy, or do you have several roommates, pray tell? Hallelujah, Obama has the economy nearly fixed. What people should start doing is boycotting these companies, and all other companies, that refuse to pay a living wage, good affordable benefits, and enough hours to live on comfortably. Parents, roommates, or do they live in their cars?
