3. Especially good because it makes the point in "business" talk...

 

This guy knows what he's talking about because he's done it. Of course, as he mentions, the CEOs are as irrational as anyone else (despite their aspirations to cool and objective, steely-eyed analysis) and will insist that it is unions that are the source of all their problems.

It comes down once again to the screwing of the middles class in terms of wages. By starving us of wage increases commensurate with the increase in productivity, management has screwed themselves. It just takes a long time for them to realize what that uncomfortable feeling in their rear end is due to.
