No, I'm faulting them because they didn't TRY. The focus wasn't on funding the pension fund, but garnering more retirement benefits that the company obviously couldn't' afford. Don't try and tell me otherwise, I went to the union meetings with my parents, I remember what the Union bosses were telling the crowds and I remember my Dad complaining about this very thing way back then.
Does nothing to change the fact that you wanted the union to have more control in company operations yet now you hate unions. While simultaneously holding the company completely blameless - is this about the time time you picked up a copy of Atlas Wanked when you were 13?
And what part of "unions accept massive cutbacks while executives take golden parachutes" did I stutter on? When was the last time you saw top company executives agree to work for $10 an hour to get the company back on track?
How's this relevant to what the Unions did or didn't do?
Only the fantasy you keep repeating, that unions have driven companies into the ground with their extravagant wage demands, while ignoring the cutbacks they have accepted.
I've not seen a company go bankrupt because they paid a CEO too much money. Have you? Citation please?
"Because of" - attempted shifting of goalposts noted, and your continued attempts to hand waive away corporate executives securing golden parachutes for themselves while steering their companies straight into the iceberg of Chapter 11.
Wow, that's a leap! So now I'm embarrassed by rich people? Seriously?
So you didn't read the quote. Seriously.
Having an equal chance, equal opportunity does NOT produce equal outcomes.
That's exactly what it means, statistically, or you do not have equal opportunity. Since you skipped it the first time, I'll just copy and paste:
Otherwise your Starbucks barista would have an equal chance of having a last name of Rockefellar as your Fortune 500 CEO has a chance of growing up in a double-wide. But of course that's not the case.
Have you ever watched the 100 yard dash? In your world, you think equal opportunity means everybody should get a participation trophy, just blah blah blather blather blah blah.
What part of the word statistically are you having a hard time with? Your entire tangent on 100 yard dashes is a non sequitur. We're not randomly grabbing the case of Bob who grew up in a double wide and comparing him to Steve who grew up with the last name of Rockefeller. It's comparing all Bob's to all Steve's - and the #1 factor in how far you go in life remains how much money your daddy had.
Which means we do not have equal opportunity.
