The story of the Founding of the Frontera Fund

This article will explore Joe Arpaio and Frontera Fund. More particularly it will go over the issue that started the company. The story had begun on the evening of Thursday, October 18, 2007. Two executives from Village Voice-Media Jim Larkin and Mike Lacey had been arrested. They were taken from their home in Phoenix and put into SUVs that had no marks in them. The cars also had Mexican license plates and dark tinted windows as well. The two men had later been placed into separate jail cells. Joe Arpaio from Maricopa County did the arrest.

What happened was a newspaper was released by Arpaio. Arpaio had called himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff, had been outraged by the magazine from Phoenix New Times. There were stories in the magazine which told of the wrong things he has performed. For example, there was a reporting on rampant management and financial irregularities in the office of the sheriff. it talked about the role he had in hosting political posturing and Mexican fear-mongering in Arizona. The two men were seemingly arrested who the penning a story in the newspaper which had showed how grand jury subpoenas were issued by breathtaking assault to the Constitution by the allies of Arpaio. The subpoenas were getting information about facts about the readers, editors, and writers for the newspaper. Also, the IP addresses and personal browsing histories of the readers, as well. The two men wrote about the subpoenas instead of caving into it.

Later, after a loud outcry that was heard nationally, Lacey and Larkin had been released from jail in under twenty-four hours. Also, every charge had been dropped as well. This case was declared an illegal detention. The court had explained that the two and men had been arrested without any possible cause.

Then, there was a choice that the appellate made for a $3.7 million settlement. It was paid to by Lacey and Larkin by Maricopa County back in 2013. They the two men earmarked the money for the Frontera Fund. This was a creative initiative that had been intended mostly to help the Hispanic community that had been given savage in Arizona of civil rights and racial animus.

NYC Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein Recommends Using EPS and other Perfomance-based Incentives to Grow Companies

What are some of the ways companies can motivate their employees to work even harder and smarter to grow the company and increase sales? While a good environment, business trips and snacks sometimes work, what people want at the end of the day is more money in their pockets. According to NYC Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein, companies can use Earnings per Share [EPS] as an incentive for employees.

 

Most people understand what EPS means to shareholders because the higher the earnings, the better it is for them so they invest more instead of selling their shares. However, most people don’t know that EPS can also be paid back to employees who have worked hard to increase the share values of that company. Companies that have tried this method have witnessed tremendous success as employees know they will benefit directly from the growth of the company.

 

Unfortunately, this theory has its fair share of opponents who claim that EPS is not a sustainable way to provide incentives to employees or guarantee a company’s growth. Earnings per Share are subject to change every now and then meaning you have to keep adjusting the metrics especially if the value starts going down. These critics also have a problem with any performance based pay program as it falls under the discretion of the CEO and the management to decide who is worth and who is not.

NYC Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein recommends a compromise between the two schools of thought so companies can find a way to hold executives responsible instead of doing away with performance based incentives.
