  1. This is becoming a big story in W.Va


    Bresch and her dad (Gov. at the time) were in the news a few years ago with regard to the WVU degree scandal that cost Mike Garrison is job as university president.

    I get why companies do that but the practice stinks.

    Especially, since we now live in an age of corporations being people and all.

    Since these companies are choosing to be foreign nationals, how should they be treated?
  3. I think you write some laws to tax the hell out of them.
    Honestly, I think there should be punishment for American-formed companies that "relocate" the corporate office overseas but continue to do a majority - or stronger percentage of their business on home soil.

    That said Mylan pays a GREAT wage.
    They hired a HR person recently ... She was employed there as a temp - through an agency - making $16 an hour. She was fired on by Mylan recently at $26 an hour.

    In the New York Times telling of the story, they assured us that she was a patriot, and was genuinely reluctant to have to take these steps:

    What if they are reluctant patriots?

    Ms. Bresch says she entered the deal reluctantly, and she genuinely seems to mean it.

    She can go fuck herself.

    Love how the Times is approaching this story.

    "She's really, really sorry…"

    She had to do it...

    It's not her fault.

    This is so galling.

    Their profits in large part are derived from American taxpayers (or debt). Yet they flee and hide behind the American tax code boogie man.

    I know you guys are focusing in, deservedly, on the white glove treatment of the NY Times... but the overall idea of Americans fleeing their responsibilities, while enjoying the benefits of this country, sickens me.

    She sounds like a real stand up gal... (from wiki)

    Bresch, the daughter of West Virginia U.S. Senator and former West Virginia governor Joe Manchin, earned her undergraduate degree from West Virginia University.[2] She was an MBA student at West Virginia University until 1998. In 2007, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Bresch claimed to have an MBA degree from West Virginia University, but that when asked the university disputed that. Soon after, the university awarded her an MBA despite her having completed only 26 of the required 48 credits. Following release of a report commissioned by the university (and written by a panel of faculty members from WVU and other universities), the university announced in April 2008 that it would rescind Bresch's degree,[13] and WVU's provost announced his resignation from that administrative post (while remaining on the faculty).[14] On June 6, 2008, WVU President Michael Garrison resigned in the wake of the scandal.[15]

    The university initially stated that it had awarded the degree after correcting a "records error."[16] Bresch claimed in April 2008 that she had arranged with the WVU Business School to have her "work experience" substitute for the outstanding coursework[17] - a claim reportedly denied by the then-head of the MBA program and rejected by the panel.[13]
