Well, the unions have won another striking (?) victory. This is the way the proletariat will dispossess the bourgeoisie of its unjustly gotten wealth. In my best Patrick Stewart voice:

Re: 18,000 workers just lost a job Hostess just called it they will shut down
well stupid fucking unions are to thank for that

you cannot strong arm a company into paying you what it doesn't fucking have!
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


Do you know how much the CEO of Hostess earns?

Driscoll was the previous CEO before new CEO Gregory Rayburn.

"In early February, Hostess had asked the bankruptcy judge to approve a sweet new employment deal for Driscoll. Its terms guaranteed him a base annual salary of $1.5 million, plus cash incentives and "long-term incentive" compensation of up to $2 million. If Hostess liquidated or Driscoll were fired without cause, he'd still get severance pay of $1.95 million as long as he honored a noncompete agreement."
 Quoting: JackedVegan


Oh......well for FUCKs sake there Einstein, that makes it all good. Wouldn't want someone making money......close this bitch up and live on someone else's back. Dick Head!
 Quoting: AdHocBOHICA


Yeah, wouldn't want the assembly line scrubs making a decent wage, eh fuckstick?

What's wrong with leveling the playing field? That's what the unions try to do. Do you want rampant, unchecked corporate CEOs?

What if a government were run the same way --- unchecked?

Hey dumbass, go get a business degree, work your ass off for 20 years, have limited time for friends and family (because you're working your ass off) and become an expert in a business. Then, you too might have a shot at becoming a CEO as well. Until then, stop your crying. Senior leaders are usually the best in their game and make this kind of money for a reason! By the way, have you ever looked at what your wonderful union leaership makes?

Whatcha going to eat? Give up the corporations, get off the internet and back into the field. Our Great Grandparents did back breaking labor in the fields. And the kids had oranges only at Christmas time if you were lucky.

Whatcha going to wear too? A wool poncho someone made on a loom? a beaver skin pelt that some trapper prepared? As much as we think we hate corporations, they enabled you to have a closet full of clothes, a computer to type on and a house to live in with all the components and machines to cook your food and do your laundry.

The union should use the Twinkie as their logo fluffy and full of s_it. I hope the union drones are happy being out of work. They don't take the risk that the leadership does and yet gets greedy with their demands and shuts the company down. Brilliant move. Stupidity from the union leadership can be blamed along with their lemming followers. One more group of workers added to the double digit unemployment lines. Obama so loved the poor, he gave us millions more.

Re: 18,000 workers just lost a job Hostess just called it they will shut down
From the Harvard Economic Research Project 1948:

When subject citizens are rendered unable to control their financial affairs, they of course become totally enslaved, a source of cheap labor.

The general rule is that there is profit in confusion; the more confusion the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer solutions.

The primary reason why the individual citizen of a country create political structure is a subconcious wish or desire to perpetuate their own dependancy relationship of childhood. Simply put, they want a human God to eliminate all risk from their lives, pat them on the head, kiss their bruises, put a chicken on every dinner table, clothe their bodies, tuck them into bed at night and tell them everything is going to be alright when they wake in the morning. This public demand is incredible, so the human God, the politician, meets incredibility with incredibility by promising the world and delivering nothing. So who's the bigger liar? The Public or the Godfather


They have had it figured out for a long time!
