I missed the entire Republic Windows & Doors strike. [h/t Instapundit]. The laid-off workers apper to think they have a right to shake down the bankrupt company’s creditors in order to get their severance pay. It seems that Bank of America, by virtue of receiving the company’s physical assets as a result of its default, is now responsible for its workers.
Many people do not seem to have the idea that employers and employees are social equals in an economic partnership, but instead view employers as social superiors morally obligated to look after the welfare of their inferior employees. By virtue of giving someone a job, you acquire a feudal responsibility to look out for them for the rest of their lives.
[Note: There may be more to the story than the media, trapped as it is in their “heroic strikers” narrative, are willing to tell us. Anybody with more info please chime in.]
