Call me a socialist, liberal, democrat, etc,etc.
How can people justify these type of contracts and then cry about union auto workers who make $20.00 an hour.

People cry how much they and other factory workers and unions are killing the industries they work for.

I believe in being rewarded for your hard work but I also believe that can go too far.

Look at this and tell me how it's justified, and no, I'm not jealous.

The $20 an hour labor has a total cost of $40+ due to other benefits, and if the stock holders dont care about the spending, neither do I.. I dont begin to care until I become a stock holder by choice, or by force, when the government decides to invest my money.

Top management is the true welfare class in this country. They make the rules for themselves and live very well by those rules at the expense of workers, customers and stockholders. It is "nice to be the King".

A steeply progressive income tax would change the rules and we could rid ourselves of these parasites. We could replace these opportunists with managers dedicated to customers, workers, share holders and themselves in that order.

Yes, but in this country we have people who worship (fear) the wealthy as gods. They truly believe that these greedy criminals EARNED their money.....and they don't care how it was done. The wealthy rule, of course, and have so many brainwashed supporters in the middle class they will never have anything to fear.
Look at how insurance company executives are supported by people who are dead set against affordable health care for all Americans....they'd rather have middle income Americans die and/or go broke than take one penny away from CEOs and upper management. They scream they don't want their taxes to go to people who can't afford health care insurance but happily , gleefully, willingly pay these execs bloated wages, golden parachutes, golden everything in their slavish devotion to their ONLY god , the rich.
