The judge noted that the bakery union went on strike after rejecting the company's latest contract offer, even though it never filed an objection to it.

"Many people, myself included, have serious questions as to the logic behind this strike,"

Perhaps, they're tired of being asked to sacrifice, when the CEO took a 300% raise... Odd, you never mention numbers ... Of course, they KILL your rhetoric, prick ! LMAOROTFU~!

It is a lie that the former Hostess CEO Driscoll received a 300% increase (that you have repeated many times). A motion for the increase was filed to the bankrupsy trusties, but was withdrawn at which point the FORMER CEO Driscoll left the company.

"When the Teamsters saw the court motion, Ken Hall, the union's secretary-treasurer and No. 2 man, was irate. So much, he thought, for what he described as Driscoll's "happy talk" about "shared sacrifice." Hall says he tracked Driscoll down by phone and told him, "If you don't withdraw this motion, these negotiations are done." Hostess withdrew the motion a few weeks later when Driscoll left -- the same Driscoll who, Hostess told the court in its motion, was "key" to "reestablishing" Hostess's "competitive position going forward." Abbott and Costello couldn't have made this stuff up if they'd gone to Wharton."

You don't mention that the top 4 executives at Hostess agreed to only be paid $1 for 2012.

So Driscoll un-quit and the package that was never approved was given to him 8 months after he quit?

If it is out of date then why did you quote for it here:

You posted the compensation package asked for, but left out the next paragraph that said he did not receive it!
