Bill Gates, it's time to start being ethical

Protesting unethical behavior.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has 15 'Guiding Principles.' Here's No. 12:
We demand ethical behavior of ourselves.
We have a news flash for Bill, who's the primary owner of Republic Services, the second largest waste company in North America: It isn't ethical to take back the retirement benefits from employees who earned them over a lifetime of hard work.

Here's another news flash: It isn't ethical to throw your employees out of work because they fight to keep their retirement funds out of your hands.

Republic Services last year locked out 80 of its workers who are members of Teamsters Local 215 in Evansville, Ind., in an attempt to force the workers to give up their pensions.

That is all.
