These are people who had a living wage until the CEOs got greedy. They had a pension. When the economy tanked the CEOs fed themselves well and hurt the employees at a time when there were few other jobs available. Of course I guess rather than work for such a nasty company they could have done what the conservatives claim all people do.
When are the money hungry corporations going to be held accountable? A person who steals is put into jail. A company that steals then blames the workers for not getting other jobs is not only held blameless but then workers are blamed for results of poor management.
