No UPMC workers?

So, now we know the truth about UPMC. UPMC does not have any employees. Well, gee whiz, I guess that great big, tall building in Downtown Pittsburgh (you know the one I mean ... the one with the big "UPMC" at the top) is just filled with empty offices. Who'd a thunk it?

But seriously, if UPMC really does not have any employees, then UPMC has not created a single job in Pittsburgh or Allegheny County. And if it hasn't, then why are we giving it all those tax exemptions, the tax exemptions that allow UPMC to pay its upper management salaries that the average Pittsburgher can only dream about? Maybe we should take those tax exemptions back until UPMC starts hiring Pittsburghers ... and paying its own way. (By the way, if UPMC doesn't have any employees, who are those managers managing?)

But, no ... Pittsburgh voters and Pittsburgh city government will allow UPMC to lull us back to sleep with its slick, multimillion-dollar ad campaign. So, as the UPMC ads should say, "Choose your health care as if our bottom line depended on it."

Do you think that the reason UPMC is a nonprofit organization is because it is paying its upper management too much?
