Paper 1 Ideas – Are Employees Stake- or Shareholders?

Obviously this answer depends on whether or not employees within the company get some sort of stock option within their contract.

The main thought behind this idea though deals more with the Apple Case. I think it would be extremely interesting to research and see how many if any of the Apple factory workers have a share within the company or are they all just stakeholders? If a significant amount of Apple employees based in China owned even the smallest share in Apple, then both Milton and Ed’s theories would have a voice for the rights of these workers.

Obviously Ed’s stakeholder views completely support putting value and interest into the employees (who are stakeholders) at some sort of level. It would be very interesting though to see if Milton’s shareholder arguments would apply to them as well.
