I share your concerns, brubeck49. During the strike, the board and management went on record as saying they would love to pay the musicians more when the economy improves. Unfortunately, the musicians have heard this rhetoric before with NO follow through. Talk is cheap, but this time people are paying attention.
It´s pathetic that Mr. Green, as the administrator of Spokane Symphony Facebook´s page, posted a link to his own fallacious, inflammatory opinion column on it. When I and others pointed out that this seemed to violate the spirit of his recent ban on comments concerning the labor dispute, we were blocked. Not only that, he has apparently taken advantage of Facebook´s relatively new "promote your post" feature--which costs money--to increase the number of "likes" on his link. It´s easy to tell this because the majority of "likes" are from Taiwan, Indonisia and other countries. Not fiscally responsible, ethical decisions for a certified public accountant and executive vice president of the Spokane Symphony Board of Trustees to make, in my opinion.
