Prominent lawyer Thomas Demetrio lambastes United Airlines – as well as all airlines and big corporations in general – for their bully culture in this outstanding speech at a press conference.
About airlines, he says, "They have the highest duty of care to provide protection and safety to its fair paying passengers. That was not done."
"For a long time, airlines – United in general – have bullied us. They have treated us less than we deserve."
Demetrio then describes what we should expect from airlines. "Here's what we want as a society: We want fairness in how people treat us. We want respect. And we want dignity. That's it! It's not a big deal. This seems so simple. Forget the law for a minute that requires common decency and treatment of passengers. Just treat us with respect like your really care."
This is the kind of speech that movements are made from.
