On Page 1B on Dec. 26, there was an article about the possible strike by dockworkers for more money. At the top of the article, we read about the negotiations and possible repercussions. Later, we found out that a longshoreman’s average annual compensation is $124,000.
I think that you could have saved your readers time if your first paragraph had included this sentence; “Longshoremen averaging $124,000 per year are threatening to strike.” I would not have to read anymore.
I hope that this generous compensation package includes counseling because if they think that anybody in today’s economy has any sympathy for them, they’re crazy.
