Who's Keeping Burger King Workers Below the Poverty Line?
... And so it goes....
There was a story my Strategic management professor used to tell that went something like this: In the 70's, when Toyota started to kick GM's ass, a bunch of executive types went to Japan to get a clue. Their Japanese counterpart told them, "In Japan, we make things. In the US, you play with money."
The gravy-sucking pigs have done their damage. It's time to shut them down. You can blame the Labor Unions all you want for ruining Industry in the US. In my book, it's at least a dead heat with the multiple layers of superfluous, bloated Management that (for example), JIT inventory practices created within the Auto industry and their teir I, II, etc. suppliers. I saw that first-hand. Then there's the whole Credit Industry. Pass the steak and shrimp salad.
Ever go out to dinner with a group of college friends and have to fork over extra money because the collection to pay the bill came up short? That's the way I feel as a taxpayer, being asked to kick in while these assholes keep their "earnings".
