A lot of careers requiring a college degree start out making the equivalent of $17 an hour. How hard can it be to make dough for Hostess?
No one is decrying anyone earning a good living. But when unions tell people they aren't making enough money making dough at $17 an hour and they end up losing their jobs...
You have a degree and make $15.00 an hour

<quoted text> how about when you take a job that's offerd at 17 an hr you don't bitch when your not getting 20. If you don't think your being treated fair go work somewhere else. Its realy no concern of your what the boss makes if your getting what you were offerd.
When you take a job, you do not agree to work that job for that money the rest of your life.

It is these management tactics that keep unions around.

When you pass out raises to management while going on TV crying about the evil union, its really pathetic. They weren't even funding their pension.

There's another funny but true relationship between condoms and Republicans.
The Republican party just doesn't understand that people that cannot afford contraception are not going to stop having sex. Guess who is going to pay to support these unwanted babies? Guess who these babies are going to vote for when they grow up. These right wingers really are clueless.
What do those people gain when their candidate wins an election?

Ryan is light years ahead of the Boy Messiah in understanding budgets. It shows.
Opinions are generally derived from facts. Your opinions are derived from a psychotic's fantasies.
That's why he voted yes to the Bush Budgets and yes to running wars off budget & yes to doubling the debt.

You want facts, look up Paul Ryan's voting record.

The Club for Growth, a right wing group, pegged Ryan as a big spender & big government man.

Those be facts,sonny. Facts you obviously had no clue existed else you would be wacking off to Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan voted to take us off the path of balanced budgets under Bush.

Just as a matter of curiosity, what skills do these bakery workers possess that someone off the street could not learn in a few days?
And they are not working...they are on strike, which is why the company shut down.
By the way, the Teamsters agreed to the pay cuts.
I can tell you never ran a company that made a product.

There is likely expensive equipment to operate and product quality responsibility.

Me, I would want experienced people doing those things. You would stop by 7-11 & hire day laborers.

When I first began teaching in the 1980s, my salary was around $28,000 a year. It would be more today, but many college degree entry levels today start out at $35,000.

The pay in my line of work now is based on production and is equivalent to $15 to $16 an hour. It doesn't require a college degree - just certification and training.

That's right.

But there is an expectation of cost of living advances & pay increases for becoming more experienced & a more valuable employee.

Conservatives believe in Constitutional government and division of powers. Leadership is working quietly with Congress instead of making non-negotiable demands.
If Obama wants higher tax rates, what is he willing to trade in return?
Is no different than Boehner saying raising tax rates is off the table.

<quoted text>I don't argue that it's 'uncommon', carol, I argue that it doesn't make good fiscal sense. If the company isn't doing well in sales, maintaining a losing sales strategy isn't very smart. The idiots in management couldn't find their Twinkies with both hands in their pockets, and they deserve a 300% raise, while the grunts following management's prescription for failure have to take pay cut after pay cut, and watch their contracted retirement disappear?
That's not 'smart' carol. That's rewarding incompetence and greed.
The company was struggling for years. The number of times it changed management was a good indicator employees should have either taken what they could get or quit and found another job. They didn't need a union helping them lose their jobs for them.
