Tell those in those top offices to give back 8% of their wages, and see how they'll react. That's just American greed at its finest.
If they don't like it then they can leave. Nobody is entitled to a job or a certain wage (other then minimum wage). People these days feel like they are entitled to make the same amount as others. That is the type of thinking that gets us into trouble.
The fact that the strike caused this mess is indisputable; it is a fact. You may feel the strike is warranted and blame others for the strike but the fact remains that the strike caused it. It was one union covering only 30% of the employees that caused this mess.
