Nothing earth-shattering but interesting nonetheless (to some).
JUST Capital and Forbes Release “JUST 100 List” Ranking Companies Performing Best on American Public’s Priorities
NEW YORK (November 30, 2016) — JUST Capital and Forbes today released the inaugural “JUST 100 List,” which ranks the publicly traded companies in America that perform best on the priorities of the American public. This is the first-ever annual ranking of how America’s top companies perform on the issues Americans care most about. The rankings are based on one of the largest surveys ever conducted on attitudes towards corporate behavior, involving 50,000 Americans over the last 18 months. This year’s list ranks U.S companies against their peers within 32 major industries. In future years, Forbes and JUST Capital will rank companies across industries.

Memo to Corporate America: Pay more. Treat people better.
Pay, benefits and how well companies respect their employees are the biggest concerns for most American workers, according to a list of companies released Wednesday by Forbes Media based on research conducted by JUST Capital, a nonprofit chaired by hedge fund mogul Paul Tudor Jones II.
Some conclusions are not surprising: Conservatives care most about U.S. job creation. Liberals favor fair pay.
But others are more unexpected: Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers (ages 35 to 64) care most about pay. Millennials care most that companies do not discriminate in any way, shape or form when hiring, firing and promoting.
The purpose of the poll was to learn specifically how Americans define a “just” company, said Martin Whittaker, the chief executive of JUST Capital.
He said the poll accurately reflects America’s broad view of business because it included more than 50,000 people, and was balanced with the U.S. Census.
“The number one issue, by far, across all demographic groups is paying a fair wage,” Whittaker said in a telephone interview Wednesday. “That was the number one thing — no matter how much money you made, no matter how you vote, no matter how old you are.”
