http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5852193/Over-400-Washington-Post-employees-signed-petition-asking-Jeff-Bezos-share-wealth.html

Quote:
More than 400 Washington Post employees signed a petition addressed to owner Jeff Bezos pointing out what they call unfair employment practices

The petition calls for 'fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security'


Not content with an "open letter", they set out to make a video and post it on YouTube.

Any wagers on what will happen next?

When you get super wealthy, that's what you do: buy things that enable you to influence the world so you can stay super wealthy.

these employees are idiots.

the news division of the company has been in the red for over a decade. the only reason the company is profitable at all is because they bought kaplan, the higher ed assistance company that mainly does test prep. THAT division pays for its own operations plus everything the newspaper does. the only reason they keep the newspaper running is because it's rich people paying for influence.

So no commentary about worker's rights, welfare and fair pay?
