    Default Great for the small guy!

    Big companies love to screw you..... So this guy got a good pay out.



    But the article doesn’t talk about the Japanese inventor who made the blue led (it was impossible to make) the company the guy worked for in total has made 120 Billion Yen on the Blue led.... and they only gave him 20,000 Yen as a thank you. So he took them to court... and guess what! The Japanese court was in favor of the little guy and gave him... 20 Billion Yen.... hahaha great!

    A friend worked for a company that made trucks, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world.
    They had to be serviced after 1000 miles with a full oil change , his m8 put it to the company that they should fill the oil on em to the minimum mark and not maximum when built to save cash.
    As the company has a 'save us cash and we will give you a percentage' policy , the bloke is now retired and doing very well indeed from the proceeds.
