For Those of You Who Doubted Steve Jobs > Michael Dell

Appleinsider reports on an education reform conference in which Steve Jobs went off on the inability of principals to fire horrible teachers because of the power of the teachers' unions.
Jobs said the problem with U.S. institutions is that they have become unionized to a point where ridding public schools of poor teachers is prohibited. "This unionization and lifetime employment of K-12 teachers is off-the-charts crazy," he said.
Dell, who reportedly sat quietly with his hands folded in his lap during Jobs' tirade, responded by saying that unions were created because employers were treating his employees unfairly.
Thanks Mike. I'm glad to hear your opinions are about as exciting as your company's products.
