Response to Unhappy in Utah (Reply #3)

6. Employee abuse by their ultra-wealthy, greedy employers is a regular topic here on DU.

Welcome to DU, Unhappy in Utah -- you've found the right place.

But to add insult to injury at least for me, is the fact as I was searching on the internet Saturday to see if our miner’s got any media coverage with this picket I ran across some articles one stating Berkshire Hathaway is now the 5th most valuable company in the world, another stating Buffett offered David Sokol, former CEO of MidAmerican Energy, an additional 12.5 million dollar compensation just years before it was found out he was allegedly making improper stock trades. But even with all of this money they apparently have they maintain the union miners have to accept the health care cuts so they can remain “competitive”!!!


It's maddening, isn't it! I wish your husband the best.
