You can already tell by our title the direction this piece is going.  

But it’s much more than just a bunch of selfish crybabies.  Today’s story is about a fundamental shift in how the country thinks and acts, whereby we have lost another critical piece of what made us unique.

But a dispute followed over whether employees should be paid for “standing by” in case of need, whether ultimately activated or not.
