Profit = 'corporate greed'

AT&T actually made a profit last year, which means they're guilty of "corporate greed," according to the Communications Workers of America union:
Thursday, union leaders delivered a petition with 3,500 names on it declaring "corporate greed" and calling on the company to settle on a fair labor agreement.
The very fact that AT&T is profitable is cited by CWA as evidence of the company's evil. As I wrote at The American Spectator:
CWA's political action committee collected $7.6 million in the 2008 election cycle, and 98% of its contributions went to Democrats. But only profitable corporations -- not unions or Democrats -- are ever guilty of "greed."
Read the whole thing.


  1. Perhaps the union should go over to one of the "non-greedy" companies like GM or Chrysler. And lord only knows what they'd think of your tip jar requests!

  2. profitable = don't have to fire your lazy asses in a downhill economy.
    You'd think they'd be on board.

  3. If anyone making a profit is considered to be "greedy", then why are we a capitalist society?

    The founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves over the pansies running Congress now and this whole "everyone is equal but average" mentality crap that the liberals have force fed mindless zombies into believing. No wonder Obama won. He does sort of look like one of the dancing zombies from Thriller.
