Charles Koch Agrees With Senator Sanders For Criminal Justice Reform

Posted by ACioe1 on

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has spoken out vehemently about corporate welfare and Charles Koch’s political agenda. To some this may come as no surprise. However, it does come as a surprise that businessman and Philanthropist Charles Koch would agree with the senator. Corporate welfare is not the only policy they agree on. Charles also agrees with the senator’s view on Criminal Justice. This begs the question why would the sixth wealthiest man in American be concerned with the criminal justice systems? Why is he advocating for criminal justice reform?

The truth is lawsuits and threatened prosecution have plagued the Koch family and Koch Industries. In 1995 Charles faced a legal battle that could have seen the unfair termination of four of his employees. Charles chose to fight the case. It took ten years and $10 million dollars to win the case. He later said, “If that can happen with us, with our resources and what we did to defend our people, what happens to people in a company that doesn’t defend them? Or even worse, to poor people who get caught in something and have no recourse?”

In his op-ed he explained,”Our criminal justice system, which is in dire need of reform, is another issue where the senator shares some of my concerns. Families and entire communities are being ripped apart by laws that unjustly destroy the lives of low-level and nonviolent offenders.”

Charles Koch is a very intelligent businessman, he is a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and a triple degree holder from the very prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Where he holds degrees in general engineering, mechanical engineering, and chemical engineering. He became president of Koch Industries after the passing of his father, Fred, whom he renamed the company for. He took the $112 million dollar company and turned it into a $280 billion dollar conglomerate and the second largest privately owned business in the United States.

Charles Koch’s philanthropy endeavors are numerous and span the spectrum of research, think tanks, the arts, market based thinking and education. He has donated an estimated $11 million dollars to Whichita State University for a new sports arena. He has donated to George Mason University as well as Florida State to name a few. He is the founder of the Cato Institute, which was formed back in 1974. The Cato Institute is a Libertarian Political think tank, which was established for media coverage, advocacy and social influence.

Handy On-Demand Cleaning Services and Handyman Company

Posted by ACioe1 on

Handy is an on-demand cleaning and handyman services company. Its current estimated worth is $500 million. Oisin Hanrahan is the founder having established other companies prior. He first established MiCandidate an online platform that availed any political content to media companies and The Undergratuate Awards a non-profit organization. His move from political content to on-demand cleaning services was inspired by two crucial experiences in his life. When in college in Hungary, Oisin worked in real estate. He discovered that people found it hard to perform small tasks inside apartments. Secondly, after finishing college in Hungary and moving to London, while working at Excel Ventures which invested in on-demand taxi service he thought of how to apply this concept to other sectors.

When doing his MBA at Harvard, Oisin brought Handy to life together with his friend who is also the co-founder. They dropped out of college later and concentrated on propelling Handy into full business. They found that Boston was not the suitable place where Handy could grow, they relocated to New York. This coupled with New York being the biggest market for Handy was the logical decision to make at that point.

Handy has not really faced competition since no other company has reached the scale that Handy has. Oisin says that the company is more focused on maintaining and building their lead rather than investing time and energy focusing on other players.

Handy involves working with contractors and customers on a daily basis. The contractors seek flexibility to work when in need of earning extra cash and working for less than 20 hours per week. Customers on the other hand seek the flexibility of being able to book a handyman or cleaner at a particular time and their reliability.

Handy plans on maintaining the contractor status and not regarding them as employees. With this they enjoy a staff of 160 and over 10,000 contractors. In keeping with competition from companies such as Thumbtack and Hassle, Handy has sought to expand in more cities. It has also come up with a different type of service. This service aims at providing people with option of buying furniture from third party stores through Handy which is later delivered and assembled in one’s house.

It’s not going to be easy for Handy and it seems that it is ready to do more in order to maintain its position.
