It's a matter of perspective, Kneepads, when you put what you put in your mouth and you swallow what you swallow, it's not hard to understand that you'd be happy to take whatever these hedge fund embellzers would dish out: you got no pride and you have no reason to have any pride.

But then you don't work for a living.

I have to wonder why you blame unions for Hostess going out of business.
the Union was fighting against an 8% pay cut, and 32% benefit cut, while the CEO gave himself a 300% raise.
9 executives 60-100% raises while hostess was filing for bankruptcy.
Hostess stopped paying into their employee pension program, and now owes them over $160k.
.
but you're right, fighting to keep wages and benefits is what caused hostess to go under.

it's called avarice.
avarice is what has destroyed the US economy.
Iceland had the right idea: don't bail out the banks, imprison the bankers and seize their personal assets.
Who said I blamed the unions for Hostess? They are bit one problem worldwide.

I don;t think you get it yet. The CEO of Hostess did the right thing, cutoff the money he was wasting on born failures, shutdown, and left these liberal shit to starve as he should've done 4 years ago. He is but one of many who are doing that and already have, and the rest are following suit.

You bastards are FINISHED. Not only are your miserable lives over as you once knew them, they are over COMPLETELY. Your already at the geate for your trip to hell. We pretty much knew you bastards and whores would go right ahead and fuck up the last chance you had left, because it's all you've done your entire life. I'm very much enjoying watching you ALL suffer your way to your demise. You earned it!

Yeah... unions are the problem. It seems to me our country started taking a turn for the worse right about the same time unions lost a lot of influence in the private sector. But go one believing your own horse shit.

Review: the CEO riased his pay to over $2.2 million, he raised the pay of the executives 3X, he spent one billion dollars that wasn't his to spend, he forced unions to take pay cuts, and when he tried to force them to take yet another pay cut on top of the last pay cut, they wouldn't go along...

But it was the union's fault.

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Plenty, including cameron, and blair, they all went through an election. Being appointed by the queen is only tradition. Once they win the election, they get appointed by the queen. Give me an example of one who got turned down.

Plenty isn't all.

And no PM ever in the history of the UK has ever stood for election before the entire population of the subjects of UK.

None.

PM = appointed by the monarch.

And now the union has got 100% of nothing. They did a great job of helping their workers. Helpers them right out of a job.

They were promised 100 percent of nothing when the hedge fund managers offered them a 25 percent share in the business that they ran into the ground- Hostess got Bain'd.

Blame the union for the decisions that were made by the executives that gave themselves raises why cutting worker's pay...

Nice job, Kneepads.

And now they have nothing. No job. No future. No hope. Get in that welfare line and wait on their obammy stamps. But they don't have a job and they won't ever have one that good again.

What future, Kneepads?

And 'before 'they had a company that had already cut their pay in half.

And their future was with a company that was in bankruptcy and the executives that tripled their salaries while they insisted the workers had to take yet another pay cut?

It is not something something you could possible understand, Kneepads: you open your mouth and you take in what people are going to give you. People with testicles: they aren't going to take that kind of abuse.

So when you keep banging your head against your boy friend;'s belt buckle, you might ponder what it would be like if you only had a pair, and what you would do in their shoes.

But stop putting the blame of the two billion dollar failure on the people who sweep the floor and bake the bread.

Hostess was Bain'd.

Now their future will be unemployment until it runs out and the welfare line after it runs out. No job. And they will never have a job that good again.

Not sure what the executives pay would have to do with it. Now they all have no job. Those workers were screwed by their union and this is all on obammys record.

Hostess was run into the ground by venture capitalists, Kneepads.

Hostess was Bain'd.

Do put the blame on failure for those that made the business decisions- start with the guys who gave themselves raises and who are now asking the bankruptcy courts to pay their golden parachutes.

The management.
