Yesterday, a bunch of Mr. B.’s co-workers at CBS were told they will be getting laid off. Two weeks before Christmas. Forty people in all from where he works.
The really shitty thing is, if Les Moonves or Katie Couric, both multi-bazillionaires gave up just one weeks pay, they could have saved these 40 peoples jobs. That’s right. The amount of money that CBS had to shave off, which cost 40 people their jobs, is less than a weeks pay for the head of CBS or their “shining star” (said with dripping sarcasm) Katie Couric. (Roughly 6 years pay for Mr. B.)
And I bet both of them will still get big, fat Christmas bonuses.
So a big boot in the ass for the greedy rich, who keep on getting richer, while making sure that the working class get it up the butt right before the holidays.
