Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway reported 9.4 billion dollars profit for the last three months. Only the day before, a company now controlled by Berkshire Hathaway, Kraft Heinz food company, had cut 2,600 jobs.

Buffett is often portrayed as a straight-talking Midwesterner who stands for limiting corporate greed.

Really?! He just doubled his profit by turning the screws on workers at companies he owns, like those at Kraft!
