union forces downfall of hostess cakes
Posted in the Cedartown Forum

5000 bakers union members have forced the closing of hostess cakes plants nationwide. 35 plants and ADDITIONAL non-union members of 13,500 workers/families out of a job.
the 5,000 union employees refused to negotiate with the company. the baking industry has VERY thin margins and there was no room for concessions.
the unemployment disbursement ALONE (that's YOUR DIRECT TAX dollars, Citizens) to the 18,5000 people is 453 MILLION dollars.........so these people are out of work (unemployment), they won't be paying taxes that their salaries would've generated, they won't be spending.
THAT's what unions do....it's nothing more the extortion.....and it's a damn shame.

Unemployment is paid by the employer for the employee not tax dollars. However, I do agree with you the unions need to be stopped I mean who would pay 10 dollars for a twinkie so a union worker can make a ridiculous amount of money. You want to make more money? Get an education and a different job. Supply and demand dictates your pay in your chosen field not the union.

you are right 'ridiculous' that unemployment 'insurance' is pauid by the employer......BUT, it is a MANDATED GOVERNMENT regulation, in the form of a tax, and is ADMINISTERED, OVERSEEN, and RUN by the government....in short, ALL unemployment dollars 'collected' from emplyers by the government is 'pooled' and then paid out by formula.
ditto to your remarks about unions. they once served a purpose...now THEY are nothing mo0re than 'profit-centers' for themselves and the bosses and administrations that run them. they have outlived their purpose.
