Agreed, why do people find it perfectly acceptable for CEOs and upper management to have a contract but not for hourly? Who else in this world can get millions of $ when fired, only CEOs are that important.
That seems to be a crying shame that people think that paying your help is such a bad thing.

That is disheartening. That is a huge wage gap and I don't know how americans can compete. Cut corporate taxes and slash wages to $3/hr. How do we sustain our country going that direction.

It's a little more complex than that. Slapping tariffs on everything might seem like a good idea, unless you are in a U.S. business that exports a lot of stuff. Tariffs can also screw us over if other countries start playing trade war, and even impede our own production in terms of importing things we can't make or produce.

Union workers are overpaid and they work 1 hour a day. Time to make room.
My generation? I doubt they'd mind too much if it meant a better, more secure, life for their children & grandchildren.
Although, I don't blame the media. They just repeated what they were fed.
