Carly Fiorina, a former GOP senate candidate, is the former CEO of computer giant HP. While making a television appearance Fiorina, who made $42 million in 2005 said that union workers are paid too much.
The comments happened during the Nov. 25 episode of Meet the Press. Fiorina was sparring with Al Sharpton about economic fairness. As a member of the 1% of top income earners, and one of the top 100 richest women in the world it was absurd for Fiorina to make the following statement according to rawstory.com:
it is not fair that public employee union pensions and benefits are so rich now
Apparently the multi-millionaire believes a living wage where a worker is able to save a few dollars after a paycheck is “too rich.” She is another example of the disconnect between wealth and the reality for the heavy majority of Americans who live their lives week to week and month to month.
Carly Fiorina waged an unsuccessful U.S. senate campaign in an attempt to topple popular California senator Barbara Boxer in 2010. Now she is trying to squeak back into the spotlight, dubiously as ever. Perhaps Fiorina is eyeing a run in 2014 or 2016.
