Unions are useless and management can always be trusted to do what's right by their workers. Just ask those coal miners that got laid off after the election

HotWingConspiracy: Or they can just avail themselves of their rights and do what they're doing now.


Yes, but they run the risk of management pulling the plug on the whole operation. Let's not forget that the company is in banko. They could probably get a pretty good deal on it. Then they can jack wages and benefits as high as they want and lead the company into the future!

" Hostess Brands announced last week it would roll back the pay raises it gave top managers in July 2011 prior to the company's filing for Chapter 11 this past January. While it was boosting managers' pay, Hostess eliminated its 401(k) match for rank-and-file workers and laid off 10 percent of the workforce, according the New York Post."

Stop second guessing the job creators in our great society.

Unions should stop using class warfare to break companies.

LordJiro: Yep. For absolutely no reason whatsoever. It never has anything to do with the policies of people running the company, it's those darn unions!


Perhaps the union could just buy a controlling interest in the company and run it as they see fit. Problem solved.

Deep Contact: That's what unions do; shut down companies make sure workers don't get trampled over by greed from the top.


Fixed that for everyone.

My favorite part of the article was the insane level of detail the journalist went into explaining the reasons why the workers are striking.

/in before the middle class bashing, anti-union, Koch Brothers inspired rants
