business news in context, analysis with attitude

With brief, occasional, italicized and sometimes gratuitous commentary…

•  From the BBC:

"Amazon could soon be forced to recognise a trade union in the UK for the first time.

"The GMB union says it has enrolled a majority of workers at Amazon's Coventry warehouse which qualifies them for recognition by law.

"It has written to the company asking to be recognised.

"Amazon says it 'respects its employees' rights to choose to join or not join a labour union'."

Really?  Does it really?
