Libertarian values in action

So, according to Jane Galt's logic it would be troubling if one employee was fired while the rest enforced a ONE MILION DOLLAR PER MONTH wage increase. But we can't do that, because it would be soooo unfair to that poor one guy.

To which I say boo fucking hoo!

Employers fire employees daily, while the Jane Galt's of this world applaud their sacred right to increase profits over people and forming contracts as they see fit. Hire and fire, baby, hire and fire.

If Jane Galt is so concerned about the poor guy who lost his job, she can go help trade unions create contracts by which the winners compensate the loosers. You have net gains form trade, why not consider net gains from collective bargaining?
