No one really minds someone profiting from their labors, but not scamming schools to get it!

I get news clippings from all over the US and beyond, and like reading what is happening.

This one was a bit disturbing.

I have seen the commissions reports for the reps and managers for some of the scammers, some approaching or over $1 million or more a year.

That alone is reprehensible, given who's suffering as a result - tax dollars stolen from the use of school kids for their programs and lack of supplies, teachers buying them out of their tiny salaries, and teachers laid off.

Psychopathic behavior, one and all, involved, is it not?  Greed at the very least.

But this takes the cake.

I used to like RPM products - until they bought Tremco in the 1990's.  It was confounding as to why a company with such great products would buy a company that involved themselves in such notorious business practices - unless the ends (profits) justified the means (scamming).

So I received a copy of this article, and thought I would pass it along to you all.

RPM's International Chairman of the Board and CEO, who looks like a decent guy in the article's picture,  is making a great deal off the school scams.  You know Tremco has to have helped the bottom line with its' monopolistic practices, to put it nicely.

So Mr. Sullivan, this question is for you:  How much longer are you going to either allow these practices to continue, or rid yourself of the growing scandal?

Teachers being driven out of jobs, teachers with not enough to pay basic bills paying for supplies, and programs cut across the board in schools while school bond funds, etc. are raised for unnecessary roofing.

Kids' futures hurt, with unnecessary construction and non-competitive bidding monopolies.

Just how much money do you "need"?

Do you even care about the future of this country, and that of your children?

You are a smart man.  You had to have had chemistry in school....and you must remember the basics.

To every action there is an opposite and equal reaction, for the universe to stay in balance.

You can be a leader, or not.

You can take the bull by the horns and admit the practices, stop them, and be a good citizen - or do like Warren Buffet, who has repeatedly ignored such cries re:  Johns-Manville openly going along to get along - private labeling for Tremco.

Everything about this scam stinks, top to bottom.

You can change it.
