Greedy corporate bastards

OK I have a serious rant and I can't hold it in. I work for a medical facility that was somewhat recently 'acquired' by a very large hospital system... whom we will henceforth refer to as "Saint Evil Corporate Bastards Health System". Since the acquisition our profit margin (which was quite impressive prior) dropped through the floor due to several negative repercussions beyond our control. To add insult to injury, a couple weeks ago we were informed that we will have to start paying a small monthly "shared expenses" fee for the privilege of being part of their glorious enterprise. This small fee is over 40 grand! That is not the annual by the way that is the actual monthly fee!!! Which of course means we have to pay the Saint Evil Corporate Bastards Health System a half a million dollars a year for the privilege of being... I'm trying to think of a family friendly term... let's just say we bent over for the soap and from there use your imagination.

I predict when it becomes obvious to some 'higher-up' that we are no longer the money making machine we once were it will be 100% our fault.
