“An 8% cut would shave $200 a week off the employees income? Lets see...that means 1% would be $25.... So times one hundred....carry the seven.....why......thats like $2500 a week!.....$10,000 a month.....$120,000 a year!....what if thats net?......Ho-Ho indeed!”
And then there are the “work rules,” which probably require that this guy just drive the truck, and have a ride along “helper” to move the product from the truck to the store while good old Doug sits on his ass in the truck playing with his iPad (or maybe himself)! He’s 49. I hope the rest of his life is spent in an unsuccessful search for another job! Payback should be a bitch! It’s going to be “interesting” when all the RATs “feelings” about things hit hard up against the “realities” of economics.
Do any Freepers remember Eastern Airlines? The mechanics union drove them out of business.
Such are the laws in the US that even if a group of disgruntled union employees approached Hostess on their own with a new “union” they would not be sanctioned to do so, and as such Hostess could not talk with them (aside from the personal danger to the “scabs” from their thug former leaders/members to even try to do such a thing from mediation). In a normal real world— this type of thing would occur and the company could save their jobs. It is like there is a total I want it now mentality— and the hell with the future.
Admittedly, companies do not honor any loyalty— unless it is in their corporate philosophy to do so. And even then loyalty can be unrewarded by the hazards of business and failures. Speaking of really big businesses, they simply do not care, and the management training trains to this expectation behaviourally.
Please also keep in mind that the dems will NOT give up on card check, trying to create the same animus in small family companies with 200 or fewer employees. Thank deMAOcrats. They will never see it that way, what few dems like to think they are patriots, on their way to raw labor power, and continue to enable the Cloward Piven dismantling of our country and freedom.
