  •  I think you've just defined 80 to 90% (none)
    or more of American workers as having insufficient moral responsibility to justify one's caring about what happens to them and their dependents.

    Please make a list of employers that it's acceptable for someone to work for while still retaining the right to your sympathy if things go bad.  I'm sure people would love to restrict their employment choices to that approved set.  By the way, do "good" companies ever go kaput?

    I do understand your point, but frankly it's the equivalent of the Religious Right preaching abstinence.  Might be a great idea, but people aren't going to do it.  I think it's reasonable to expect people to exert some responsibility in choosing their employers without saying that if they have to make some compromises to get by then they're undeserving of compassion and respect.

    By the way, the fate of GM may have been clear to you and E. F. Schumacher by the mid-70s, but I remember those times as still being when Japanese cars were considered junky by the general public, so I think you're using 20-20 hindsight, to the extent it matters.
