    Does bussiness ethics pay? Can a company be super successful and ethical at the same time?

    Cyberslackers are a symptom of people not enjoying their work. I'm an under-paid programmer who comes to work early, leave later and I never really slack. I might read documentation while laying down on a couch, or recliner in my chair while watching some online courses, but I enjoy the work I'm doing and I work with great people.
    People who slack are probably being under-stimulated, under-paid, and only spend time at work for the sake of a paycheck. Such people should be moved to somewhere their potential match their responsibilities

    Where I live most of our money if not all our money comes from hotels and Casinos I worked at one of the biggest ones for my first job. I was there 3 months and I heard about employees stealing the first week I was there I already knew where I could get drugs and even stolen guns and most the bussers I worked with would sit on their phones for 60% of their shift I would work my ass off but if I went to talk to someone for a few mins I would get bitched at by my manager. Not to make this racial but most the other bussers were black and they never got yelled at “I think my manager was scared of them he was very skinny pretty short and gay” they could do whatever they want and barely got in trouble. The only unethical thing I would do is get high on Valium I mean really high but I would work 2x as hard since I had a buzz instead of budding tables for 30-45 mins then getting tired I could stay on the floor a good 2 hours go smoke a cig than come right back for another few hours but most the time I was very blacked out from the amount of benzos I would take but man would I work my ass off. One time we had I think it was a party of like 20 people maybe more come in and everyone was freaking out since we didn’t get a heads up I just about bussed that whole table myself because I was so loaded and no I didn’t stumble around I didn’t drop a single thing while I was high the only way you could tell I wasn’t sober is that I would talk quieter the best way I can describe it is I talked like I was asleep I would mumble and talk real slow but nobody noticed.

    As a non-American and one who has almost never seen an alive American in a real life, I have to wonder: do American people care that much about ethics?
    Does not the view that "the one who got more money is the better person" prevail? Like, "he costs more", "he makes more", "he is the better one"?
    Does not the view that those who lost money, are, by the virtue of, well, LOSING it, - the LOSERS?
    And by being losers, aren't they by American ethical standards ones who deserve what happened to them?
    And, well, if they deserve it, then there is surely no shame for those who did to them what they really deserved by being losers?
    Like, "the social jungle does not care for the defeated"?
    Or is American ethical system more complicated than that?
    The view that ethics matter at all - is this even a thing? At least, outside of "naive communist hippy" minorities?
    I really wonder about it, because, judging only by the international presence of American culture, without an input from actual people - it is very easy to conclude that it's a very individualistic culture, where caring about others well-being is a sign of "weakness' and 'stupidity' not worthy of a true rugged self-interested rational person...

    That thing about pharmaceutical companies charging far too much for medicine is really true. I need to take medicine for depression, ADHD, and anxiety, and for sleep and if it wasn't for the Medicaid I automatically got when I went into foster care I would have to pay over $300 EVERY MONTH when I'd need to refill my prescriptions. And since I'm out of state for college, I have to pay $50 everytime. Thank God for support checks, but it's definitely gonna be hard when I age out of fostercare.

    Holy crap there is soooo much wrong or misleading information in this video
    1) Pharmacuetical companies pricing their meds higher than most consumers can afford is not price fixing. Its just taking advantage of patents to recoup the tens of millions spent on R&D to make the drug and make outrageous profits at the same time.
    Price fixing is when two or more companies agree to FIX the PRICE of their respective comparable products instead of competing. For example imagine that there were only 2 companies that sold milk in your area. Normally they would compete for customers, and since most customers buy the cheapest brand that competition will drive their price down to around the national average of about $3 per gallon. But what if the CEOs of those two companies got together and agreed to both raise their prices so they were both charging $9 per gallon. Now they still cost the same so they're still selling the same number of gallons, but they're getting three times as much for each, tripling their income. That is price fixing.

    2) In the US doctors can not refuse to provide life saving treatment because the patient cant pay. Here let Physician News (A reference I found with the 5 seconds of googling that was apparently too much for this channel to do): "The federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, commonly referred to as “EMTALA,” was enacted by Congress in response to a concern over “patient dumping” by hospitals refusing treatment of individuals who could not afford to pay for medical services. EMTALA imposes a duty on the hospital and its physicians to provide medical screening examinations and medical stabilization of all individuals seeking emergency care, regardless of the individual’s ability to pay. "

    3) It is NOT true that "almost every company books their books to some degree" this is proveable for the simple reason that if the majority, or even a significant percentage of large companies were lying the entire world wide financial system couldn't function as well as it does. Everything on a company's books has to be backed up eventually one way or another, the reason we know about companies like Enron is because their lying, like all corporate financial lying that goes on without eventual correction, was exposed.
    All that is beside the fact that, as the video mentions but doesn't understand, there is no incentive for that kind of lying from a big company as they can afford to simply relocate their headquarters to Ireland if they don't want to pay corporate taxes, or use any of a hundred other legal corporate tricks to shield then from liabilities.

    4) Price Standardization is hardly unethical as no one is being forced to buy their products in markets where they cost more as a relation to cost of living, but I guess that's a philosophical argument so... whatever.

    5) Yeah, lobbying should be banned or controlled.

    4:03 Finally a youtube channel that says at least ONE good thing about trump. There are few decent people on the internet left, and most of them think that the 8-year nightmare of the obama presidency, was a good one. Obama ruined the economy, and used the government and the people to make himself rich, by rising taxes. That is all that democrats do nowadays.

  • Botton Gabriel

    About doctors refusing to operate: doctors that refuse to operate on patients without an insurence are made to pay all the fees from their own pocket. The minimum cost of a surgery is really high (thousands at least), as you need to gather a big team of people, use expensive material you'll have to throw away, let the patient stay a few days for post operation. Even considering the rather high salary of doctors, they can't really afford to do that. Additionally, if they operate regardless of that, they get yelled at by their bosses. So telling them they are wrong is a bit like telling somebody that doesn't want to pay for a charity what an ***hole they are. In my opinion, the fault lies mainly in the system for creating such moral dilemmas. So yes, some doctors are cold, morally wrong people, but isn't the system that creates such a dilemma equally at fault?

    There are companies that build their entire mission on intentionally scamming people and yet they're allowed to file for bankruptcy and build another business! I'm not talking about things like Red Bulls' slogan being misleading when it's obviously a metaphor, but companies that intentionally do not deliver anywhere near close to what they promise or do the opposite of what they say just to rob people of their money. Why are they allowed to file for bankruptcy? They should be obligated to pay for their malicious intent for the rest of their lives or until all debt is paid off. Why are they also allowed to build a another company? They should be banned from building another company period!

    The biggest unethical behavior in the workplace that I have seen personally is just upper management blatantly lying to their employees. My job has us illegally change food labels to increase the shelf life of food. I asked my manager if they would fire me if I refused to do it and they said yes. I told her that if they did that I could sue and most likely win and then she folded and said yeah we can’t technically fire you for that. So for anyone being forced in their job to do something illegal you don’t have to do it.

    First, doctors in the Western world today do NOT take the Hippocratic Oath. Banks were not the primary causes for the 2008 housing crash;; rather, one major US political party enacted laws or created administrative regulatory pressures supposedly in an effort to combat "redlining," that is, the refusal of Banks to make loans to people who were almost certain to be unable or unwilling to pay back their mortgages on the theory that everyone should own a home. Banks reacted to those laws and pressures by making these "foolish" loans, but the Banks shifted the risks by creating bundles of these loans and selling them off to investors. As long as the bubble that this political party was creating did not pop, these bundles of mortgages seemed like a good investment. The bubble kept increasing in size and the eventually burst. One needs to place the blame where it truly lies: that political party and its legislators. Third, your comments on using one's political clout to petition members of Congress is entirely legal: Persons have the right to petition Congress. Persons have the right of free speech. Corporations are persons within the ambit of the law Therefore corporations have the rights of free speech (and free speech includes the right to make political contributions and to petition members of Congress. Q.E..D. Finally, your 8th supposedly unethical behavior consists of charging the same prices for goods, e.g.,, coffee, in all locations regardless of other factors (wage and rental differences, median income, etc.) However, companies are also held to be unethical in they charge different prices for their products in different markets (e.g., pharmaceutical companies that charge much more for medicines in the first world than they do in the second and third worlds. In other words, corporations get the blame no matter what course of action that they might take.

    my dad's a surgeon. he used to work at multiple hospitals throughout the town, and one of them would always forward patients to another hospital because they didnt have insurance (I dont think it was the doctors themselves who refused, it was probably the business side of it).

    First off, only 30% of medschools even offer the Hippocratic Oath so the misconception that all doctors are bound by oath is misleading. There are other oaths that medstudents take when they receive their MD. The Hippocratic oath is dated and does not accurately portray contemporary attitudes towards medicine care. The issue that doctors aren’t treating those without insurance has a different reason.
