We haven't been since Reaganomics, wages for people who actually WORK for a living have stagnated or reversed in the last 30 years while corporations profit have soared.
So much for the "trickle down" theory.
Tax cuts create U.S, jobs theory.
"Free" trade creates U.S. jobs theory.
Self regulation is good for business theory.
But after 30 years of dismal failure, teabaggers keep insisting that square peg WILL fit into that round hole.
Teabaggers instead blame the victims, not the culprit.
Poor teabagger.
Heres your libotard business style,'if you won't give us all your money, we will bring down the ship', the only problem is, you libotards are on that ship, just like the libotards in Washington trying to bring down the whole country just to get a couple more dollars from those that are smart enough to get rich.

Good job at Hostess! I say, shut down all heavily unionized plants and businesses! The real workers will take the jobs and let the union slobs eat road kill.

Recent Article:

And here’s what you won't hear the unions ever talk about:

--Hostess paid out almost $100 million in health benefits for retirees last year, but over half of it covered workers who never had worked at Hostess. The Teamsters’ onerous and antiquated “multi-employer pension plan” foists the pension obligations of a bankrupt company on to the balance sheets of surviving rivals—ensuring a steady death spiral in any declining industry. A similar “MEPP” almost killed YRC, one of the largest trucking companies.

--Union rules forced Hostess to run separate truck fleets for delivering bread vs. sweets. A sweets driver, serving a 7-11 store, was forbidden from restocking shelves with breads already delivered and waiting in the back—he had to call for a bread driver to swing by and handle.

--The union restrictions on the 5,500 distribution routes at Hostess made it unprofitable to serve tiny outlets, yet Hostess was barred from using smaller, sleeker—and non-union—distributors.

--Workers were asked to take an 8% pay cut and pay 17% of their health-care costs instead of zero. Welcome to the club, guys. For this, they would have received 25% ownership of Hostess plus $100 million of Hostess debt to be paid back to the unions.

But the bakers wouldn’t budge.

In the months ahead a chop-shop or food giant may resurrect various Hostess brands, but those 36 plants are shuttered, those 18,500 jobs are gone for good. The union preferred to picket while an 85-year-old company suffocated ... rather than risk having to face inevitable demands for similar concessions at other employers across the country.

Those demands will be forthcoming, anyway, because, as President Obama likes to say in slapping the rich with higher taxes, the math doesn’t work. The only questions are which union will be next, and whether anyone reasonable (or sane) will be listening.

Even a parasite is smart enough to know not to kill its host. In the case of unions, the presence of such preternatural intelligence isn’t yet readily apparent.

Republicans throughout the country have proved yet again they are not on the side of working class Americans by saying they want to lower or eliminate the federal minimum wage.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele’s lack of knowledge on the minimum wage as well,Steele was asked several times if he knew the minimum wage, but through his dodging around of the question, trying to change subject and actually giving two amounts that were both incorrect, it was clear he did not.
Sure Steele is not running for office, but as the chairman of the national Republican Party and being the spokesman for the Republicans as a whole, it goes to the larger problem of the GOP clearly being out of touch with what most Americans go through day to day and want – despite the party claiming they understand better than the Democrats. Republican candidates Joe Miller of Alaska, John Raese of West Virginia, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Linda McMahon of Connecticut have all called for reducing the minimum wage with Raese flat out saying it should be eliminated. If this is what the American people want then those candidates must not have gotten the memo showing most Americans actually want the minimum wage to increase.
The idea that some Republican candidates would not see that as an issue proves they do not understand and do not care about the problems of the middle class. There is no reason to think the previous 116 Republicans who voted against the wage increase in 2007 would now vote for an increase. If Republicans regain the majority, middle class America could see their lives become that much harder.
The Republicans have already proven they do not have the interests of the middle class at heart by voting against a bill that would keep teachers from being laid off, voting against a bill that would give small businesses the credit they need to hire more workers and voting against a bill that would keep American jobs from being shipped overseas.
Nothing the GOP has said and nothing they have done – both now and when they had the majority under President George W. Bush – has shown they want the economy to bounce back and want the middle class to be prosperous again.

Poor STUPID teabaggers.

Hostess Brands, the maker of sweet snacks like Twinkies that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, will ask a bankruptcy judge today to approve a plan that will allow it to pay $1.75 million in bonuses to 19 of its executives. Hostess’ decision to file for bankruptcy came amid disputes with its union workers, who threatened a strike that Hostess said imperiled the company’s finances. The unions are now protesting Hostess’ request for the bonuses, though they are unlikely to prevail, CNN Money reports:
Hostess Brands will ask a bankruptcy judge on Monday for approval to shut down the company and pay $1.75 million in executive bonuses.
Under the plan, bonuses ranging from $7,400 to $130,500 will be paid to 19 executives. The company argues the bonuses are below market rates for such payments.
Even as it blamed unions for the bankruptcy and the 18,500 job losses that will ensue, Hostess already gave its executives pay raises earlier this year. The salary of the company’s chief executive tripled from $750,000 to roughly $2.5 million, and at least nine other executives received pay raises ranging from $90,000 to $400,000. Those raises came just months after Hostess originally filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
Hostess is hardly the only company that has compensated its executives during bankruptcy or times of financial instability. Failed financial firm MF Global gave CEO Jon Corzine an $8 million pay package after it filed for bankruptcy, and Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit received a $6.7 million pay package when he resigned, despite Citi’s 88 percent profit loss during his final quarter. And Hostess isn’t alone in giving executives massive raises while asking for concessions from union workers either: construction giant Caterpillar rewarded its CEO with a 60 percent pay raise, paying him $17 million, even as it forced a pay and pension freeze on its union workforce.

Uncle Tab, did I congratulate you on the election? Well...I am now! Cheers!

They are for everything and anything that's against middle class:

Minimum Wage

Unions

Workman's Comp

Unemployment

Social Securty Benefits

Entitlements they invented

Women's Rights

Equality to all men

They are against tax increases on the wealthy yet favor increases on the middle class (such as what's sitting in Congress as we speak).

I'm all for any Republican voter to go ahead, work and compete against Chinese wages of $350/Mo. and arrive at their all American dream the Republicans claim they can work toward! Just don't try buying groceries, that's all.

I'm just glad we finally got a President who can actually READ the Constitution. I know it wasn't just all intended toward the men in the big houses when it was written by wealthy slave and land owners

what does hostess have to do with bigger government. hostess may have acquired smaller companies with pension plans. you believe that people who invest in their future and retirement is big government?

you do know what a pension plan is, don't you? it's something an employee usually contributes to along with the employer. if the company files bankruptcy, the employees then lose their pension that they may have paid into for years. like enron did to it's workers and then giving their execs big bonuses.
