As Globe closure looms, pressmen reach agreement; Guild goes home - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe Check out the picture at the top of the story. Compare the physiques of the Guild rep.s to that of the management negotiator (facing the camera). Remember well, these are the people fighting for LIFETIME JOB GUARANTEES. A little personal responsibility, and performance measurements may be something of a paradigm shift, perhaps. If one or two of them were fat, then OK. But it's a unanimous 5 versus the one thin management guy. I've seen many similar examples over the past 20+ years of being in the business/government workplace. Shmessy opined (tho' not posted yet) something to the effect of: "Look at the sizes of those people! It's like the movie Wall-E. No wonder we must all teach our next generation to speak Chinese?" Am I being "judgemental" Yes. What's that old quote about "Being fat, dumb and lazy is no way to go through life, son"???? A way of life is a way of life. That picture says something that is NOT a mere coincidence.
