Before people get carried away thinking about those "billions in profits", they need to look at what percentage that is. On most of those big companies (not all) the actual profit margine is fairly small. If you look at that and do some thinking, you will find out that a lot of those companies can't afford to give much of a raise to everyone.
BTW, if you do some digging, you may be shocked at what companies are making the big profit percentages.
