Ender quote 2: "Mandate of heaven"

When someone finally says "Enough"

Both oogata and jenni_snake recently posted about the all-too-familiar story of profitable companies cutting jobs (or replacing full-time, benefit-carrying workers with part-time, benefit-less individuals).  The cases they cited took place in Australia and Canada, but it's a familiar complaint here in the U.S. as well.  In fact, there's a developing story right now in Los Angeles, pitting the staff and management of the Los Angeles Times against the newspaper's owner, the Chicago-based Tribune Co.  The article behind the cut was published in the Los Angeles Times business section on Tuesday, Sept. 19th.  A second article, from Thursday's New York Times business section, will follow in a subsequent post.

Laura and Jen, maybe there's hope yet.
