SkyPilot, like your handle, can't agree with your sentiments. A kid has bad parents, he has no choce, you can feel sorry for him. He grows up, and suppose he joins a union to get a job, that is a choice. He loses his job because of his union, too bad, you can feel sorry for him but our old friend schadenfreude kicks in, what did you expect. Poor life choices is the progenitor of bad luck.
So no one is dancing on the grave of someone who lost their job, no, they are recognizing that actions have consequences. No shame is due them. Think these positions through and check for self-righteousness.
The irony is just amazing.
