Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
These are tough times if you’re not a numbers guy.
But even I couldn’t help noticing that Bank of America, which recently came into $25 billion (in guess whose money), has parted with a piddling $1.3 million to end a sit-in by illegally fired workers in Chicago.
You really don’t have to be a numbers guy to figure out that the “haves”, there’s no other way to describe them, were playing with fire when 200 employees of Republic Windows & Doors holed-up in their factory and wouldn’t come out.
“Although we are a lender with no obligation to pay Republic’s employees,” began the B of A statement…
Anyone care to complete that sentence? A phrase about avoiding civil unrest might be appropriate. Or rioting in the streets. Or maybe just a mild retort to the bank having no obligation:
“Oh yes you do!”
What did you plan to do with our loot? Hoard it?
