Husband and father of one,
Is there a mutual responsibility between employer and employee?
I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine about fair distribution of profits at all levels of an organization. He informed me that as an employer he doesn't feel he owes his employees anything and they are in fact lucky to be working.
Is he right? Do employers have an inherent right to the vast majority of the profits garnered by their organization?
Is his view too "old school"? Is there an ethical imperative to create a more equitable distribution of the profits at all levels of the organization?
I would appreciate feedback on both sides of this question. I know my views on the subject, but I'm really interested in other peoples opinions. As important as what you think, I would like to know why you hold that view.
This is an important question for me, and I thank you in advance for your assistance.
