    The management of “Twinkies” was just terrible. They should have hired more workers, given everybody a big raise and borrowed the money from China. Losses don’t count, ignore them. It worked for Obama.

    They gave everyone who didn’t actually do any labor huge raises.
    The CEO’s pay was more than TRIPLED from $750,000 to $2,550,000 per year.
    Nine other executives had raises which almost DOUBLED their paychecks!
    What did the 18,500 average Americans who did the actual labor at Hostess get? A pay cut and a raid of their pension plan!

    Yeah, Weirdharold, she’s right on stuck on ignorant. (not stupid! There IS a difference)

    The workers were getting paid a fair wage when their union bosses got greedy for an increase in THEIR perks through worker donations. The workers and the company supplying the jobs be darned.

    Now there are thousands losing their jobs right at Christmas.

    Good job unions! Go the heck away, you’ve outlived your usefulness!

    Nope, not quite. The unions showed a lot of flexibility, taking major cuts to pay and benefits. The management and venture capitalists, meanwhile, failed to adapt to changing times but paid themselves massive salaries and increased them just as they were asking for pay cuts from labor. And here’s an actual reference with data:

    To all who think that only the unions get screwed. Why don’t the union reps buy Hostess and keep making their products.
    Communism only works as long as there is someone else to rob.

    Just a hunch but I’d guess it is the result of his ability to read. (Something other than News corp crap.)

    Never fear! The name may change, but the product will continue so long as there are people foolish enuff to eat it.

    Your point wasn’t completely idiotic until you equated private labor working for private bosses as “communism.”

    Why do you let hysterical hyperbole define your argument?

    Wal Mart introduced the $4 generic prescription plan. Millions of people have saved hundreds of millions of dollars. Millions win and thousand lose.

    Unions would not be necessary, nor would regulations, if those in charge were honorable. Until that day occurs, though, anyone who thinks they are not necessary, or that they’re counterproductive, is fooling him/herself.

    Isn’t it interesting how people can read about, be lectured about, and preach living honorably at least once per week, yet after thousands of years of doing so, are unwilling to “walk the walk”?

    Didn’t you know that every strike is about greedy lazy union workers wanting more money for less work? After all, if they really want jobs, they should be willing to work for pennies a day under deadly conditions. It’s the “free market way”. Oh, except when big businesses need welfare, that’s different.
