Are you kidding me? All this to save $100K?

My favorite parts are about him cutting the hours of the elevator operators, that there are 30 employees who still haven't received their 2000 World Series rings, and this little gem: "The Yankees management has also disbanded its secretaries' union, thereby giving the club more room regarding secretaries' wages and hours."

Jason,

Were I a business owner, I would look to avoid unions; they're so frequently counter-productive and create a contentious atmosphere around employment circumstances. Now part of that is that you have to do good business in the first place -- I think companies to a certain extent bring on their own consequences when employees unionize against them. Maybe that's inevitable with George, I don't know. --DG

P.S. For those interested, CEO John Mackey of Whole Foods Market -- who impressed me a great deal -- has a very good take on unions, and you can listen to our radio show interview with him of a few weeks ago directly via this link:
