However, there is one group of folks who aren't swayed by the mantra of "Simplify, simplify, simplify": the United Auto Workers. As proof, take a look at their Ford contract for 2007. Go on, we'll wait....
Did you see that? It's 22 pounds, folks. Twenty-two pounds worth of legalese. Twenty-two pounds worth of mumbo-jumbo. Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a problem.
Now, I'm not here to judge, and I'm certainly not here to argue against the Little Man getting a fair wage from Big Business. But do automakers really need to sign off on the content of bulletin boards (volume 1, page 138)? Maybe both sides would fare a little better with smaller contracts and smaller legal departments....--Richard Read
