They have to pay the patents to each recipe as well which will be stacks on stacks on stacks.

I'm waiting for a dodgy. My family used to buy American, unless you can prove that nightmarish electrical issues and poor design since the late 70's is the union's fault I'm gonna have to disagree with you.

Besides you don't need to be doing drugs.

SHENS!

Now you are totally changing the requirements (ie from "a healthy company that fell apart due to unions" now to some specific electrical BS)...

Its a fact the US was getting their ***** handed to them because other countries could build cars cheaper. If you dont agree with this please explain why the US started moving plants to Mexico.

Maybe, just maybe, he is saying that for a long time the quality of American cars was ****ing terrible so the businesses that made them struggled... What a noble concept!

Thats exactly what hes saying.. and the quality was terrible because it cost the US more to make the same car due to higher wages. So for the same price you get less quality... exactly what I was trying to say.

What I am saying is GM and other American car companies made poor quality cars for years and lost an entire generation of buyers in the process. Not including their continued attempts to market based on income levels, an outdated strategy.

Could you make the argument that paying high wages because of union demands strained their profit margins even further? Definitely. However to blame every problem like poor quality, poor design, and poor management is too much of a stretch in my opinion.

Sure union demands may have exacerbated the problem, but I wouldn't call American car companies healthy other than their union problem.

My point really is, no one even notices the unions when the company is running fine. Once the company starts performing badly everyone loves to blame the union.

Besides, its the business's goal to maximize profits. What's so bad about the unions doing the same thing?

As far as I know unions were not established to maximize profits, the AFL-CIO was created to limit the work day for all workers to 8 hours per day within a clean and a reasonably safe environment. but thats really another subject...

To answer your question... whats so bad about that? Well when 500 bakers strike causing 18,500 people to lose their job. IMO Thats bad. If they are not happy with what they are getting paid, quit, go find another job, dont ruin in for the other 18,000 people.

Fair enough but it is quite surprising that such a minority of workers could shut down a whole company while the CEO is awarded bonuses.

So with that rate, you'll be out of hostess products by tomorrow, or tomorrow night.

apparently the union and hostess agreed to some terms just recently, so he can buy more and continue to consume boxes in one sitting
