"Big Labor"

by Jerry Bader

As one who has battled the bulge his entire life, I'm not going to fixate on his weight.  But the sleeping on the job, allegedly putting in a couple hours a day, and making the kind of scratch that he does is all significant. Why? Because unions want to believe they can manage companies better than companies can. It's why they want to be 50-50 partners in management. 

This is why I say to hell with that. If unions want to put a slug like this in a position like that, it is their choice. But don't do that and try to tell us you understand what it takes to make and keep a business profitable.
