Sure they make bank... Not MILLIONS!!! More like a couple hundred thousand.

They have gone years without an increase in pay... everyone has. As a matter of fact the bankruptcy negotiations included a 8% across the board pay cut that had yet to effect the hourly employees. As a show of good faith and solidarity, management took the pay cut immediately!

These union turds knew years ago that this pay cut was coming.
So this is not like it's big corporate america screwing it's employees out of their pay. This was to be a unified effort to save the company.

Most who initially went on strike are NEW EMPLOYEES who replaced those who left after the first bankruptcy filing. They knew the deal coming in.

So these pieces of shit cut off their own noses to spite their own faces and unfortunately have now bled to death.

As for my friend... His wife works a very low paying job and he is MAYBE bringing in an estimated 180k. He even flips cars on the side to help make ends meet. His kids are in public schools and they canceled their last family vacation to save money.

So once again... fuck you lazy union employees.

180k is like making 40k 20 years go. Its nothing. Especially when the GOV is taking %40-50. NOT TO MENTION EVERY OTHER HIDDEN TAX THAT THEY RAPE YOU WITH after you get your paycheck... ie- sales tax, 10 dollars toll roads (that we already paid for in the first place)

oh and the %10 inflation year over year. You guys are living in a fantasy world.

To you anyone making over 100k is rich, and they should have half their shit taken and forced over to you LAZY bitches who can barely get a service job at CVS.

Re: I am personal friends with a C-Level Hostess Employee...
The average C-level for a company that employs over 2,000ppl makes at least HALF A MILLION/ year.

His wife is a public servant and makes MAYBE 30k a year...

So at 210K combined...

They probably bring home 135K...

Not a lavish lifestyle...

And since they aren't on any gov assistance... they pay their own way.

If you are proud that you build solid gold toilets for less..
You're a dumbass who never aspired to do shit with your life.

FFS a public school teacher here makes 80K.


To my original point... Hostess isn't a shit rolls downhill company. The top brass took pay cuts for no reason.

I've never heard of 180k being low... Right?
That's above average.

$4000 a week...
Doesn't seem like a low pay to me..

Holy shit, how do they fuel their private jet?

How terrible life must be for them. Where can I send relief money?

My family of five would live like Royalty with 135 take home.

We could pay our mortgage off in one year and buy a brand new minivan with change leftover for utilities and food, clothes etc.

The second year...man, I can't even imagine what we would do with all that money.

Actually no, you'd be surprised. Virtually all of your deductions go away and you get no assistance for education at all. You'd try to buy a bigger home and face huge property taxes. $180K is kind of a bad spot to be at on the Marxist graduated income tax scheme.

I got to a point where I deliberately lowered my income by about $30K and was BETTER off financially. I could still write off my education expenses. The government start to take away more than half your income, if you look at state local, property taxes fees etc.

To get that 180K you'd have to live in a place with high costs. For example in New York city, $180K doesn't really cut it. The government swarms like leaches over anyone who tries to pass the upper middle class income barrier.

This year I thought I was going to do better, but my clients have stopped paying me, while still expecting me to work. I think a lot of us are going to start hearing "checks in the mail" under the Obama economy.

Absolute and total bsflagbsflagbsflagbsflag.

Hostess's CEO's salary increased from $750,000 last year year to $2.25 million this year. Nine other executives also reportedly received huge salary increases. Though, to be fair, your OP only talks about "managers" who might be different from the greedy executives who are raiding the place on the way through bankruptcy--which the company is in for the second time.

OP, are you a paid shill?

Re: I am personal friends with a C-Level Hostess Employee...
Screw the unions - the union thugs are only out for themselves and growing their unions so they get more money and power. They put the screws into teachers to join and the teachers do join because the membership brings with it liability insurance in case of lawsuits - very common in this social climate. Then, the unions sit there and tell us we have to vote for Democrats. That pisses me off to no end - WE aren't allowed to talk politics at school but they are allowed to flood our school emails with their propaganda.

That's funny, but we bought a great house in a decent neighborhood right across the street from School for our Kids. A fenced yard, attached two-car garage, a basement, 3 beds 1.5 baths with an addition family room, all hardwood floors and a nice deck for 72,000 thanks to the Housing crash. We had a big down payment and life is good.

We buy good condition used cars and have no car payments, and we don't CC anything unless it's a "same-as-cash" situation.

If we brought home 124,000 per year, we would own life itself. New cars instead of used, and our TVs would be both smart *and* active 3d.
