Class War, Indeed

[New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg, however, said on his radio show Friday morning that the finance sector and corporate world were the providers of jobs. According to the Village Voice he went on to say that targeting them was counterproductive to the cause of economic injustice.


“Everyone’s got a thing they want to protest, some of which is not realistic,” Bloomberg said. “And if you focus, for example, on driving the banks out of New York City, you know those are our jobs … You can’t have it both ways: If you want jobs you have to assist companies and give them confidence to go and hire people.”

“The protests that are trying to destroy the jobs of working people in this city aren’t productive,” he said.

Michael Bloomberg, gazillionaire, telling unemployed masses that their complaints amount to destroying bankers jobs. I’ll bet they feel really bad about themselves now.

But wait, I can cheer them up again.

A recent report in Bloomberg Markets magazine revealed that Koch Industries had been caught paying bribes to win contracts, engaging in possibly-illegal trade with Iran, price fixing, and ignoring environmental regulations.

The magazine also uncovered a Koch Industries document admitting that they had violated federal law.
