Large corporations often use this tactic of buying back their own stock in order to withhold profits from workers, and instead keep more and more of those profits for their CEOs and Wall Street investors. This practice has further exploded under President Trump’s tax law that overwhelmingly benefited major corporations and the top 1 percent.
