The Post-Asshole Era

No, we're not entering it, but to a great degree corporate execs oppose and fight labor because that's what their DNA was programmed with in the cloning vats. If they were concerned with saving money and maximizing shareholder value they'd cut their salaries and expense accounts and corporate jets. They're not. They're concerned with being assholes and beating people down. Making peace with labor is largely about a few people deciding that maybe we shouldn't spend all of our time being giant assholes in a counterproductive way.

That's something.
