Chick-Fil-A Founder Runs A Strong, Fair Ship

Itís a daily diet -- reports of over-the-top corporate profits and more than over-the-top executive salaries, bonuses and stock options. At the same time, plants close, thousands of middle managers and line workers lose their jobs and benefits fade.

For 85-year-old founder and chairman of Chick-Fil-A, Truett Cathy, now in his sixtieth year running the company, corporate and executive greed should not be tolerated.

"I think they should pay the price, and not walk off with millions or billions of dollars to let other people suffer because of their trust in their company," Cathy said. "The CEO has an obligation to his people and particularly to the stockholders, that their investment is protected and cared for, and he should be the last one to walk off with zero. Heís got to see that everyone else gets their share."

Without naming names, Cathy feels strongly that corporate wrongdoers should pay the price.

"I think they should be ashamed of themselves. I really do feel if you leave other people with empty pockets and they bring in all the cash, I think they should be charged with some sort of punishment," said Cathy.

For Cathy, the formula for his privately-held company puts employees first. More than 73 percent of Chick-Fil-Aís 1,250 store managers worked for the company in high school or college, and all young employees get college scholarships after two years of working at least 20 hours a week.

"People ask me, 'Why donít you retire'," Cathy said. "Why retire from doing something I enjoy doing? Iím only 85, so I figure I got a lot of good years ahead of me."
-------------------------------------------
If much of the corporate world is run by men just like Truett Cathy, then things would have been very, very different today.

Damn those modern selfish corporate hogs and their selfish attitudes.

Chic-Fil-A is the "McDonald" of chicken sandwiches, except better offerings than McDonald, with a lot more health-oriented meals.

All Chic-Fil-A outlets always close on Sunday because the founder is a Christian, believing it should be a day of rest for families and a day of sabbath for Christians.

Re: God bless Truett Cathy, founder of Chic-Fil-A!
I was in florida and saw the place for the first time and decided to try one out and pulled into the drive through.

It was sunday and the joint was closed!

I said to my wife...what the fuck! She noticed the sign that said they were closed on sundays. another wtf!

closed on sundays? whats up with that? What, people don't get hungry on sundays??

so this asshat says...sunday is supposed to be a day of rest...rest for whom? poor mom tired of the weekly shitfest and wanting to enjoy a dinner out?

seriously, this old codger sounds insane. i imagine that in his will he wants to be ground into paste and fed to chickens...or perhaps made into patties and deep fried and served through a drive through window.

the story sounds like something concocted by a PR hack.

fuck. it is so tiring to always be the target of some marketing strategy...and the "win" is a fucking chicken sandwich
