Here’s what you’ll find in the latest OtherWords editorial package, which includes an op-ed by Kevin Shih regarding CEOs who unnecessarily slash jobs–a practice that earns them outrageous compensation and harms America’s economy. There’s also a CEO cartoon accompanying that commentary, a Labor Day op-ed by AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, and a Jim Hightower column extolling the advantages (to Democrats) if the GOP chooses Newt Gingrich as the party’s presidential nominee in 2012.
