America's Wealth Gap 'Unsustainable' According To Harvard Study http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/08/wealth-gap_n_5783550.html My synopsis of the article: - There are problems with some essential needs in our society, such as the transportation infrastructure, ability for people to learn things, and the political gridlock between Democrats and Republicans. - More people believe that the ability for companies to be internationally competitive with other countries is at risk. People are working too hard at work (between 45 to 50 hours per week) on average and the ability to pay workers with higher wages and more health care benefits is diminishing. Instead, employees should be working about 35 to 40 hours a week. A 40 hour work week should be the federally mandated maximum amount of hours an employee could work. - Harvard University calls on corporate leaders and other parties to fix the wealth gap by applying fixes and many changes to the K-12 system, create skill-based training programs (should be applied during/after college and people should receive a stipend for doing it), improving the country's infrastructure, raising taxes and finding other ways to improve the overall well-being of people. - A business needs to realize that it has a great influence over the efficiency and productivity of its workers and it needs to re-organize its workplace culture to address that. They need to realize that if its workers are thriving and doing well, the company's growth, finances, anonymous survey reviews, etc will respond the same way. Morale would totally improve between the company's leadership and employees.
