The Ports of Auckland sacking of 7th March drew some pretty strong viewpoints out of RadioLIVE listeners. Not least, was this particular comment of rage left by Jim Bob here:

John Banks just now on [Wednesday's] One News: "The workers at the port have been well paid now for a long time... their day of reckoning has come now!"
What the hell, John Banks! What about the [port] CEO on $3000 dollars a flipping day! When is his day of reckoning coming, Mr Banks? I'm sick of these head people not leading like real leaders! First cut your own pay, Mr CEO! Lead like a real leader!
I for one who is self employed will be down there with them at the weekend supporting any action they choose to take! I'm so angry at this CEO right now!
HE IS EXACTLY THE REASON I BECAME SELF EMPLOYED!
I got sick of guys like him licking the sweat off the backs of the working class. This chap needs to be brought down a peg, or three!
As for Mr Len "hands tied" Brown, when did the sole owner of a company have no say or influence over what happens there? You're pissing in my pocket and telling me it's a "sunshower", aren't you Len? Sad! The council owns the darned port, so the darned council can step in and take over if they want to! ANYTIME!
Mr Key you have seriously dropped the ball; promising and blabbering on about closing the wage gap with Aussie and you sit there and take no action (which is just a show of support for your highly paid CEO buddies!).
For Christ's sake, you are the government; you're the people who write the law, and you're saying your hands are tied as well! If that is the case mate, don't bloody well count on my vote next election!
