The plan is coming to fruition. The elites want to know just how far they can force the worker bees to go to kiss their asses for a job. Getting branded on your body with the company logo shows exactly how LOW the American worker has aspired to. Next just offer to blow your boss or the owner of the company on Wall St for his friends to see. Now that will make them jealous.

I thought it was decided that branding slaves was inhumane...

"I don’t see myself going anywhere"

Oh dear.  Yeah, most people who lose their jobs feel this way when they're still working.  You'll change your tune once you're fired, let go, the company is swallowed up by another firm or it goes out of business. 

Get your raise on merit and not because your sold a part of your body. Selling your body for a raise will never reflect well in future job interviews because it indicates you have no ethics.

Unlike my evangelizing friend below, I have some more logical reasons to avoid this kind of thing.  Those include ridicule, future embarrassment and having to constantly explain the idea to everyone who sees it.  You'll likely be seen as a "sell out" and although a 15% bump in pay is nice, you become an unpaid advert for that company the next day when they fire you or at some future point when they let you to, go bankrupt or you find something better.  At that point, having to explain it all the time becomes somewhat pointless and tedious.


Not to mention the slight, but real, possibility of getting hepatitis, AIDS or some other pathogen from badly sterilized needles, or an infection from the procedure itself.

To each their own, of course, but I'd really question the mental stability of anyone who came to me looking for a job with a corporate logo tattooed on their bodies even if it was for my OWN company.  Many businesses demand no tattoos that can be seen - especially in customer service.

Giving in to getting a comic permanently placed on your body for the sake of a company and what will likely be a short-term benefit is a pretty poor rationalization for what amounts to self mutilation and much higher costs in the future (Especially in getting it removed).

But as bad as it reflects on the bearer of the tattoo, it reflects even worse on the company that made the offer in the first place.

"...DO NOT MARK YOUR SKIN WITH TATTOOS.  I AM THE LORD."  LEVITICUS. 19:28, THE HOLY BIBLE.  

TATTOOING IS A CORRUPT AND HARMFUL PRACTICE THAT MUST BE DISCOURAGED BY SOCIETY.  TATTOOS ARE DEMONIC, UNCLEAN DEFILEMENTS THAT INDICATE ALCOHOLISM, SADOMASOCHISM, AND HARD DRUG USE.

So wait, what if one employee is doing bad on the job and they get the logo tattooed? They automatically get a pay raise?

You can get them removed but it might cost you an arm and a leg.

As if we need more proof that there exist such humanoids that for a finite amount of money would do anything ,killing their family included.......The system and the few rich have always found people who were prepared in order to avoid, as they thought ,what the others go through ,to side with the perverts and execute any order given to them by the boss!!slaves in essence....and they think they will find happiness this way.they think they can live a happy life when at the same time around the people suffer.I say this is a good way to fish out these traitors and then eliminate them from our society.tatoo or not tatoo.....

"Lolli told CBS New York that he hasn’t gotten inked yet, but plans to eventually."

First clue your boss may bail and is smart enough not to be branded with the logo himself.

once they resign or are fired, will the real estate firm pay its removal?

It is thoroughly saddening to see how conceited, hateful minute-man with emulated intelligence try to insult or ridicule people who offer righteous help to yet negligent victims of this self-sick, egocentric "society", and thereby reveal themselves as the pathetic dummies they realy are - yet. To take such a person's poisonous oppinion equals social and moral suicide!

Jesus, this is really pathetic. I don't know who is worse, the people with so little self-respect they would agree to such a thing, or this poor excuse for a human being, taking advantage of his employees need for more money this way. What an A-hole.

Yes, I do agree with you. They are treating people like cattles. It sounds like white slavery.

The question is: what happens if the employee finds himself a better paid job and decides to quit?

Is there any limit to greed, corruption and the foolishness of gullible employment security freaks? What happens if they finally change their jobs? ...also, this will probably be their last pay raise for a very long time!
If you need a tattoo to get paid a fair share of the profit you generate you are working for the wrong company - you need to get a life!! God loves you and sent the Lord Jesus Christ his only begotten Son who became flesh and blood, to save, deliver and bless you - "I traverse the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice, that I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries." /Proverbs 8:20-21; John 3:16-18/

I think it's a wonderful social experiment and a great illustration of how corporations can use human nature to further entrench the Stockholm Syndrome that already afflicts a great portion of the population.  If you can get people to self-mutilate for a 15% raise (and I submit they could have gotten equal numbers for 10%), then what sort of outrageous behavior could you command for, say, 20%?  And one wonders why Wall Street fund managers gamble with people's life savings as if they were playing with monopoly money?  Because they are paid well to do so!  Our priorities as a nation are twisted.  We no longer look for love, peace and harmony because we are too busy trying to make money.

Ink used is with radio reflective metal ID. It's an old science of monitoring organisms through use of organic substance laden with chemically active metal families that trans-pond an easily tracked ultra high radio frequency. It has been used for quite a while now in order to track people and their movements including their body thermal levels and responses. The old bug and subcutaneous device implants are a thing of the past. Though we are about to break away from this concept it is still in use by military complex and governments until of course such time when transponder impregnated human blood system is finally put into effective use.

No way! This company is trying to own you the way farmers own their cattle by branding them. It's very condescending to ask workers to do this for any reason at all. These employees should note that management has yet to brand themselves with the company's logo. They are above doing so as this is only fitting for the lowly workers.

@cdngmt You are perfectly right. In our culture tattoo is associated with people in reformatories and drifters of society. Those workers will regret the moment they are no longer in honeymoon with the company. The worst to come is to remove/erase the company 'brand'.

@ElijahG I urge you to check the calendar and note that although most don't print it, the date is actually AD and not BC.  And please don't go quoting bronze-age mythological nonsense.  That particular religious tome also encourages child abuse, incest, pedophilia, spousal abuse, slavery, self-mutilation, intolerance, hatred, hypocrisy and violence. 

 Most people can get along without any of those things.  Maybe you should give up your backward ways and try becoming somewhat more civilized for a change.

@Netnet Camomot  Doubt it.  This company hardly sounds ethical. I'd bet the employee is responsible for the removal. Any company that thinks it's a good idea to mark up your body to support their corporation is hardly going to care about you once you're no longer around. 

I realize your question was probably rhetorical but I couldn't resist answering

@wombat Except, you know, this isn't an experiment where the controls go back to normal when everything is done. These are real people.  So, not so wonderful. Unless this was sarcasm and if so... sarcasm was lost. 

DeweySayenoff

@wombat I think you need to narrow the focus of your ire a touch.  Focus more on the corporations that don't pay us a liveable wage and less on the struggle to make a liveable wage.  The former is reprehensible.  The latter is laudable.  Lumping them both together under the category of "this nation" is neither justified or reasonable.

@Lisa Ver Hage Hancock If the mark of the beast is the tattoo of some real estate company in New York then both the devil and God have some serious PR problems and Armageddon has been seriously overplayed.

@DeweySayenoff @ElijahG So tattoo is a mark of a civilized individual? I invite you to travel to some islands in the pacific and in northern parts of Luzon, Philippines, just to name a few. They find it as an art. Is that the same with you as one who is civilized?
