There are so many more things that come with a union other than a slightly higher wage, the most important thing being a voice that will be heard. How some of the bootlickers on this site can be so against that is beyond me.

I think a company with 6 CEOs in 8 years; none of whom had any bread and cake baking industry experience, where workers had taken concessions to help the company survive a previous bankruptcy, where Hostess management had already planned to close plants even if the workers accepted the cuts and stayed at work, where top executives had gotten massive raises as Hostess was about to enter bankruptcy, where investments in the company’s future, promised as part of restructuring after the previous bankruptcy, were never made, where management was put in place by private equity companies, Wall Street investors, “restructuring experts”, third-tier managers from other non-baking food companies and currently a “liquidation specialist” were all factors that helped to expedite Hostess demise.

Blaming Unions alone is overly simplistic and and fallacious thinking but hey, this is GLP so I'm not surprised...

It really is pitiful how clueless you are and even when it's staring you in the face, you still dont get it. Please continue cheering on those who would work you like a mule until you collapse if it makes them a buck.

Not this guy.
 Quoting: JesseDart


Fact is, Wal-Mart's profits are subsidized by the taxpayer, because it purposefully pays wages that place people below the poverty line and thus qualify them for public benefits. There are people in HR depts of WM whose function it is to help employees apply for public benefits, e.g. EBT, AFDC, etc. In CA, employees of WM are 40% more likely to be receiving public assistance than their counterparts that work for other retailers, e.g. Target.

So all you WM fans out there, you must also be fans of enriching the corporate bottom line on the backs of taxpayers.

I'm not. I don't believe that is true capitalism.

You as taxpayers subsidize Walmart profits by paying for their employee benefits, doesnt that irk you at all?

Walmart is so scared of their employees forming unions that they are willing to walk away from stores that are entirely stocked and ready to open, doesnt that alone tell you that their business practices include things that would never fly with an educated organized workforce?

The concept of a union is a good one, but it's abused these days, much like everything else, people are just looking for the easiest way to make the most money and cut the least amount of risks. Unions take all of that into a ball and abuse it to the fullest.

Re: Union Fail: Walmart Reports Record Sales
It's foolish to think Wal-Mart CEO's would suffer or the shareholders be forced to sacrifice.

All Wal-Mart would do under unions is RAISE the price of everything so that the average working family is required to infuse money directly into the union's pockets.

Then the unions can once again use their influence to force their members to vote a certain way as they just did for Obama.

So unions really are a way to infuse money into the far left on the backs of the working people once again. They out-priced their member on the world labor scale and cost this country so much in manufacturing that low paying service jobs are all that are left.

But forcing the average working family to pay more for the price of milk and bread to subsidize unions is not going to help anybody except, of course, the union thugs.

Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales.





They’ve already sold nearly 2 million towels, 1.3 million televisions, and 250,000 bicycles. According to Walmart Chief Executive Bill Simon, over 1.3 million Walmart staffers are on duty. There have been picket lines around the country, but the movement has been far less effective than expected.
 Quoting: Bluebird


I have one question. If anyone can answer it, I will very much appreciate the information.

WalMart reports record sales...right? Is it a record number of merchandise units sold? Or, is it total dollars sold? If it is total dollars, have they taken into account inflation and produced an "inflation corrected" total?

I'm just saying....

These protests all came together very quickly and spontaneously in response to Walmart's request that its employees work on Thanksgiving day.

Walmart told its employees a few weeks before Thanksgiving that they would have to work on Thanksgiving because Walmart's market research is alleged to have found that people want to go shopping as soon as they finished their Thanksgiving dinners.

These protests spontaneously erupted in almost all 50 states.

This isn't a union fail.

Any concern that employs a million people is going to have some irregularities but the Wage and Hour Bureau and OSHA provide a great deal of protection to the average worker.

I highly doubt many are having to work "double shifts" as they are all getting reduced to under 30 hrs thanks to Obamacare.

And someone who plans their career around discount retail sales and thinks this totally unskilled labor will support them and pay a "living wage" is pretty delusional in this day and age. It's at best a part time job or supplemental as discount retail sales is NEVER going to earn enough to support a family of four. Nor shoulsd it.

Unskilled labor is only worth so much and is not a very smart course in life.

ETA The same goes for flipping burgers at McDonalds--not likely to ever pay very much as food industry does not either. And again, it's not exactly rocket science.
