I overheard him several times over the years telling his rich friends how silly I was to care about the people who worked for us. They were as calloused as he was, telling him I would outgrow my interest in others and would learn to focus on the only important thing: making money for Kempner Enterprises. He didn’t show a trace of concern when our construction on a multi-million dollar, eighty-story office building was delayed by government red tape for six months. Hundreds of plumbers, electricians, bricklayers, painters, etc. were thrown out of work. I saw the look of disdain on Dad’s face and heard it in his tone when he said, “Quit worrying about those workers, Mitch. All that matters is the project. When it finally gets going, we’ll hire them back.”
