Then the well dried up and they want to cut Mr. Union's pay, but Mr. Union still sees Joe CEO getting his multi-million dollar bonuses. I can understand why Mr. Union would get a little upset. I think its human nature to always want more, and also be jealous and resentful of those getting more than you.
True, the corruption is top to bottom. I just feel that the top is getting all the blame and the "poor workers" get the sympathy. Then look at how long ago Dave Bing was trying to change things and got nothing but resistance.
