ExxonMobil announced profits of over 40 billion dollars, the largest profits of any company in history. The three biggest U.S. oil companies made so much profit – ripped from our pockets – it came to ten million dollars every hour of every day, all year long.
Ten million dollars an hour, 87 billion dollars a year – just in profit. What does that mean?
Those profits are equal to more than two million jobs paying $40,000 a year.
Those profits are equal to 14 million people paying for private health insurance.
Instead, a bunch of rapacious executives and investors add to their nauseating wealth in a society filled with misery.
