  •  I had a boss once, a VP of operations, who (6+ / 0-)

    took great pride in saying he saved the company money by scratching a $0.01 - $0.02 reduction into every floor technicians raise for that quarter.  When you take into consideration that he was:
    - "saving" about $0.60 a week plus some O/T,  and
    - these were high tech staff at the $15-20/hour point

    For the 30 +/- highly educated, value adding and now pissed off techs he was saving on the order of $1000/year total for a $100M company!  This guy also used to walk around with a wad of money in his shirt breast pocket covered by a $100 (no idea what was under that but I would think it was more big bills).

    Point?  That rich self entitled asswipes think that no matter how much money they already have, other people should make as little as possible so they can make more.  Even when "more" is less than his pocket change.  The battle for a living wage continues for the middle class.
