It is unbelievable how people like you bitch about companies returning profits to shareholders. It's like you want to make being a shareholder some exclusive club. If those employees want a say, have them kick in 20,000 each and they would own enough of the company to have a say.
But the disingenuous part of people like you is how you bash the stock market and it's burden to shareholders yet your beloved pension is backed by the same market. When those returns are good, that you project that nobody should care about are good, your union goes to the table asking for crazy demands. When those returns are bad, you do not care because your pension is guaranteed.
Maybe if your pension/retirement was on the line with the ups and downs of the stock market, like MOST OF THE SHAREHOLDERS are, you would not come off as such a pompous tool. Digest that for a second.
