Try paying fair wages and tax´´, by Peter Wilby, 2010. The text is about the bad side of the rich people and what cons there is about donating to these organizations. They donate to get around the tax, and when they donate they market their product and get even more money.

Try paying fair wages and tax. I agree with some of Peter Wilbys accusations such as the rich are getting richer by donating tax-free money to organizations to exempt from the tax. They have all the money and power they need. They are big investors and producers, but what I think is bad about these organizations is that they are bragging and making a big scene out of this. If you donate money you should not tell the whole world about it, they money you gave will be remembered by whom you gave it to. They are indeed getting richer as new products and donations are coming in, so it is great that they are donating. The thing I disagree with is that Peter means that they should set the employers priority as number one. There are more people in need of these donations, than workers who already earn money and can somehow supply for themselves. There are many poor and there are worse people out there, there are people who have trouble finding food and do not even have a roof over their head. I think that charities are a great thing, because people need to help one another and not be greedy. They need it the most. Vaccine and people in bad conditions should be the number one priority. However, I think that they are doing a wonderful action by donating money to those in need. We all need to donate some of our money to charities and help other
