The New Gilded Age 0

It gets more gilded every day. From a report at SFGate:

An executive at Salesforce appears to be enamored with Elon Musk’s desire to work 80-hour weeks and subject his workers to those conditions.

As I have mentioned, I worked for the railroad (I loved the railroad!), which is a heavily unionized environment (though these days, the unions don’t seem to be as strong as they should used to be). By happenstance, I knew a high-ranking union official, the chief lobbyist for one of the major railroad unions, a kind and honest and thoughtful man, indeed, one of the finest men I have ever known.

He was fond of pointing out that “unions are the creation of management.”

To put it another way, if management treats employees fairly, employees have no incentive to form unions.
