Don't worry Motts, me and all my friends are buying up the Motts, Dr Pepper, and Snapple and throwing a huge Labor Day party with it all. The stuff is flying off the store shelves like I have never seen it. We have to ask the local Walmart to get more stock.
Those freakin goofs that are striking are not getting our support. The community as a whole is completely done with their immature antics.

hey you morons, why don't you fight your dumb inside battles at your dumb yellow house.
I only see like 4 or 5 of you striking anymore, and they are sitting drunk in their lawn chairs.
What happened to the other 300 idiots that got duped by the rwdsu? Where did those big shots from NYC go?
Spending your union dues, perhaps?

I will continue to buy Motts and all other Dr Pepper Snapple products. Not only do they taste great but some are even produced locally and hopefully will continue to be. I know some of the Motts employees and they have always been content with their employer and some are even happier now that the union is not there. They say that the temps have better attitudes.

I'm actually glad they got the Rotten Apple workforce outta that factory - what a brilliant move. I hear the new workers are doing well now that the folding chair wavers are literally out on the street, on their asses. Funny that they don't even realize that!

When a corporation considers its workers (those who by all accounts helped Mott's and Co. garner record profits) as "commodities" to be swapped-out when a cheaper, less docile workforce (commodity) can be plucked from the masses of miserable peasantry, we have LOST the great American promise of a strong middle-class. This is the first round of what may be a flood of companies following suite; pitting the unemployed against their employed brothers and sisters.
It makes good "business" and profitability", but the fabric of a nation becomes just that much weaker. You may have your legitimate differences with unions, but they at least advocate FOR the working person. The corporation, by definition, exist to make money- by any legal means necessary- even if it is unethical (in my opinion). If you think that is compatible with a just and civil society and helps to strengthen our nation and its citizenry, then you must not have noticed all the jobs and factories that have left America.
Corporations hold NO ALLEGIANCE to any nation, city, State or creed. IF THEY COULD BUY TANKERS OF APPLE JUICE FROM CHINA CHEAPER, THEY WOULD. Do not fool yourself by thinking they LIKE you!! You are only a means to an end- MORE MONEY. That is the Corporate god- mammon.

You and I are a corporation of one.
when you go to the store and you see a product that look the same and probably function the same you look at the price and the one made in the US is twice as much as the one made in china which one do you do you pick.
every one try to keep as much money in there pockets as possible You Me and corporations.

My prayers have been answered, every day I drive by lately there have been no more than 6 people sitting in lawn chairs. Yesterday there were 4. Where are the other 301 striking cracker heads? Well, where ever they are (drunk, high, sleeping, MCDonalds, or Ontario video and news) hope they stay there

Larry, you should show more interest in our cause. I am reporting your comments to the steward so they can gank your strike pay. We all should be on the line during regular working hours, not just me and a few other folks.

Well, it looks like the boycott backfired, you woodchucks!
I went to buy a case of the raspberry applesauce at Brens and the cashier asked me what was going on with all of people coming in asking for cases of that and cinnamon applesauce.

I guess it is because we are showing our support for a company that has not left USA for foreign plants.

Turns out there has been a rush on Motts products all throughout NYS. Who knew that so many people would stockpile Motts products to show the union that only 305 people care out of millions of people in NY.

Me, I do it because of the signs that people are hanging up about the union, it attracted me to the product and gave me a way to say F you to RWDSU.
