A New Way To Do Business

The business model we have now is highly flawed and exploitative.

How it works now is this:

A certain person has acquired money somehow. They may have earned it through work, they may have not.

They buy property to start a business. They privately own this property; only they can decide what to do with it.

If there is high consumer demand for the products this business offers than it grows larger.

The larger it grows, the harder it is to operate with less people operating it.

The owner must hire workers.

The owner hires these workers by offering them a certain amount of money from that raked in by the business.

The implication of this is that the workers are required to work harder for less money that the owner would have to if he was operating their job because he is now keeping the difference.

The owner makes more simply because he already has more. In other words; the richer you are, the easier it is to get richer. While those on the bottom remain stuck with less no matter how hard they work.

Though it operates upon voluntary consent of the workers, the workers don’t realize what is being done to them.

I will now propose a new way of doing things:

When the owner hires workers, instead of having dominion over them, the workers are given an equal share in the business.

Instead of the owner pocketing the difference, the profit would be split evenly between everyone involved.

When this happens, it not only gives the workers just as much a chance in climbing up the ladder as those that are richer but also gives the workers incentive to invest in their business which they now cooperatively own.

It’s just as good for the business as it was before except now it’s better for a much larger amount people who operate the business than it was before.
