I'm writing this at work, between calls, which means that no matter how angry and scared and close-to-panicky I am, I'm keeping it rated PG at worst.
But I'm writing it at work between calls, because if I don't get rid of what I have to say (and I can't say it to customers), I'll end up having that panic attack.
Here's the thing. As far as I can see, our upper management's attitude toward the union demands is very similar to today's vote in Congress and theirs toward the American people at the whole.
As long as the people at the top get theirs, they don't care what happens to the rest of us.
Or worse, they're anticipating getting rid of us so they can have even more for themselves.
Hike up healthcare costs to the employee or take away life-giving services because you don't want to pay for part of them; it's just a matter of degree, really.
Send money overseas to pay for war, or to hire outsourced call centers. Just a matter of degree.
I feel sick.
But maybe I shouldn't admit that here.
After all, who would pay for it?
