You are nothing more than owned chattel, OR: "PRODUCT"

OH brother, where art thou?
McCarron has “streamlined” the union nationally, much as he did in Los Angeles. Now, he claims, the union can match the power of regional contractors. Perhaps so, but in whose interest is McCarron “streamlining” the union? McCarron often refers to carpenters as the “product.” He talks about “increasing market share.” He told Winston, “A worker’s success comes down to productivity, not just wages and benefits.” Some of McCarron’s critics are alarmed by his business terminology, fearing that his words signify that he views the Carpenters union as just another business, with one very special difference — it happens to be his business.  http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Pd7A6Y9FycEJ:www.laborstandard.org/New_Postings/Carpenters_Union.htm+&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Ethics

Seems like it was a premonition, and with the wage reducing PLA's and CBA's being signed - it's became the truth.

Confused
Is this the real Ethics or the impostor ?
