“Let us accept Rev. Al’s point and the president’s point about fairness,” Fiorina replied. “But equally, it is not fair that public employee union pensions and benefits are so rich now that cities and states are going bankrupt and college tuition is going up 25 and 30 percent or police and firefighters are being cut. There’s a lot that isn’t fair right now.”
For the record, Fiorina is the person who started the first big wave of technology mass-firings and off-shoring to low-wage counties like India and China. During her brief tenure at HP, Fiorina fired over 18,000 employees and coined the phrase Right-sizing to dismiss it. When the Board canned her, she got a very fair $43 Million golden parachute for her troubles.
