That Sends Me into a Shame Spiral... 

Mustang Bobby links to a story about my employer.
The money was spent in the name of improving security at the nation's airports:

· $526.95 for one phone call from the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago to Iowa City.

· $1,180 for 20 gallons of Starbucks Coffee -- $3.69 a cup -- at the Santa Clara Marriott in California.

· $1,540 to rent 14 extension cords at $5 each per day for three weeks at the Wyndham Peaks Resort and Golden Door Spa in Telluride, Colo.

· $8,100 for elevator operators at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan.
I'm too ashamed to continue. I will tell you that Pearson isn't passing along any of that dirty money to it's current employees. They don't pay us shit.
