: Flint: Whenever I've had to steal from work it was for something I couldn't afford to buy. If the business were owned by the workers outright, there could never be any theft as how could you steal from yourself?
TD Surely you are stealing off your fellow workers, if you steal from a co-owned business ?
Flint: The only areas of good job s growing are biotech and computers (of which I'm in).
TD: Well lucky for you, that you work in a sector that is -GASP- making money. Is it not slightly against your principles to work for a company driven by PROFIT ? And when you say good jobs, you mean well paid, right ? Well, look at what you earn and think about where those components are manufactured...
And as for biotech, aren't those companies in the moral doghouse for trying to patent human genes ? If that's not exploitation, then what is ?
But like you said, there's good jobs with these companies....
Flint: But hey, you got to walk before you can run and we'll take a $1 raise, health care benefits and a grievance-arbitraiton procedure to start with.
TD Doesn't your cushy IT job come with this attached ? If it's an expanding sector, all these benefits will be tagged on to make the package more attractive to potential employees.
I may work at McD's Flint, but who is the bigger hypocrite here ? Maybe you should start a co-op shovelling bullshit - there's enough of it washing round this site to keep a small town in work.
