“I really didn't hear that much,” she said. “I was just trying to figure out what he was doing there, how does this work for him, can he make much money, would it be better to start with some money in the case, or for it to be empty, so people feel sorry for you? I was analyzing it financially.”
What do you do, Jackie?
“I'm a lawyer in labor relations with the United States Postal Service. I just negotiated a national contract.”
