Corporate Greed: Killing Middle-Class America
Updated On: Feb 08, 2018
Feb. 8, 2018 | ECONOMY | This past summer, striking Charter/Spectrum worker Eddie Rogan climbed onto the Mets dugout towards the end of a game at Citi Field and unfurled an IBEW Local 3 banner – for the Long Island father of three, this modest act of civil disobedience time at rating awareness about the plight of the working people was like “screaming into a canyon.” “I’ve got a great marriage and great kids, so I’m extremely lucky there,” Rogan tells LaborPress. “The pain that you feel is that you’ve been with the company for 32 years; the company’s been around for 40 years and there’s never been a labor dispute. Management and the union have always gotten along; the main concern was the customer. But this new company rolls in with new ideas; they want to reinvent the wheel; change everything around and all hell breaks loose. It’s the way the county’s going — corporate greed is basically taking over. It’s killing middle-class America. It’s destroying blue collar workers. And I’m not sure when it’s going to change.”… Labor Press
