Caterpillar not so great


I couldn’t believe it when I read the article on Caterpillar’s wonderful big corporate new distribution center. Did your writer interview any of the employees about how much they are paid so big corporation Caterpillar can have such a juicy bottom line?

None of those $12- to $13-per-hour employees will ever have the American Dream of having a living wage job with benefits and home ownership. They will still need taxpayers’ help just to exist. Forget about trying to save up for a vacation, retirement, or maybe a new roof and windows if, in fact, they can ever afford to be a homeowner.

Big corporations like Caterpillar’s distribution warehouse are destroying America.
