And that is not counting all of the other companies that exist because of them. Hate them all you want, but the economy would be suffering even more without them.Just did a quick search on the top 10 Fortune 500 companies and adding up each according to their own websites, they employ 4million Americans..just the top 10. WOW
Definately. I always think the same is true with the defense budget. Not just direct defense but look at all the contractors, Lockheed, Boeing, Rockwell etc then you can break it down further to subcontractors, everyone that works at a base plus all those that support their locations, pizza guys, realtors, stores etc. I bet more Americans work for defense either directly or indirectly than probably any other industry, yet that is the first thing they want to cut. Imagine the unemployment then!But people enjoy yelling and screaming about companies making profits. But compared to the federal government, these big 10 companies are just a drop in the bucket.
