Almost 200 CEO’s of top corporations making multi-million dollar salaries are telling everyday Americans who’ve invested in their corporations, that making a profit is no longer a priority.
Anti-capitalism Democrat presidential candidates, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who’ve made railing against “evil” corporations a focal point of their campaigns, while young people who’ve been indoctrinated by socialist academia applaud their efforts to destroy them. CEO’s of top corporations, many of whom are contributors to the Democrat Party, appear to be trying to win over to the corporation-hating leftists, by pledging to put social justice before the people who actually invest in their corporations.
The Daily Mail reports -The updated definition was released on Monday by the Business Roundtable, a group that dates back to 1997 and gathers together many of America’s most influential corporate leaders including top names like J.P Morgan, Boeing, Apple, and Amazon.
The statement redefined the purpose of a corporation with social consciousness in mind, saying corporations are now committed to valuing customers, investing in employees by hiring diverse groups and compensating them fairly, dealing ethically with suppliers, protecting the environment with sustainable practices and supporting local communities.
It’s a stark contrast from the longstanding principle that companies function first and foremost to benefit shareholders and maximize their profits.
‘The American dream is alive, but fraying,’ Jamie Dimon, the Chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase & Co and Chairman of the Business Roundtable, said in the statement.
‘Major employers are investing in their workers and communities because they know it is the only way to be successful over the long term. These modernized principles reflect the business community’s unwavering commitment to continue to push for an economy that serves all Americans,’ he added.
Here’s the list of CEO’s from 180 corporations who’ve pledged to put social justice over profits:
