We’ve seen company bosses say all kinds of things in the heat of negotiations, but Publisher George Hearst hit a new low today.
In his memo to staff, he said: “If we cannot reach a negotiated agreement in short order, the further passage of time without relief on these important issues may require us to modify our proposal to something worse. We do not wish to take that step, but if it is necessary, we will.”
Wow. The very definition of a bully.
It’s a shame to see someone who once had such a sterling reputation in the community continue to sully it. His approval ratings are dropping like Gov. Paterson’s, for the same reasons.
