That was rank paternalism of course and maybe even a tiny bit of BS. He wasn't an agenl, and everyone wasn't well and fairly treated across the company, something that's well-known. But I think in his core he had a very deep ceimntommt to the idea that he had a moral obligation to every human being that worked for him. That actually wasn't such an umomncon attitude for CEOs of the day.

Original Text

Mind you, Grandpa fought the unions, and he fought them hard. He said he didn't like to be forced to do something he wanted to do voluntarily. That was rank paternalism of course and maybe even a tiny bit of BS. He wasn't an angel, and everyone wasn't well and fairly treated across the company, something that's well-known. But I think in his core he had a very deep commitment to the idea that he had a moral obligation to every human being that worked for him. That actually wasn't such an uncommon attitude for CEOs of the day.
