Maybe they should call it "The Vice Squad".

While we are waiting for the outcome of tuesdays meetings:

(Hostess has stressed that sacrifices were made across-the-board at the company, though workers may feel like they've given up far more than executives. As the Wall Street Journal reported, the company's four top executives agreed earlier this year to work for a salary of $1 until Hostess emerged from bankruptcy -- but only after enjoying raises of 75 to 80 percent in 2011, when the company had already hired restructuring lawyers.)

How generous of them ......

You may have heard that Hostess Bakery plants shut down due to a workers' strike.

But you may not have heard how it was split up. The State Department hired all the
Twinkies, the Secret Service hired all the HoHos, the generals are sleeping with the
Cupcakes and the voters sent all the Ding Dongs to Congress.

I just Retired after spending 37 years working my butt off building Freeway Bridges and now I'm enjoying a Union pension, I don't feel for one minute that I skated along screwing my employers because I was Union, I earned it . Have you seen the Hostess CEO got a 300% increase in pay, maybe that had some bearing on their problems... Ya think ?
A whole lot of " I earned it", " get what's coming to me", "working my butt off", suppose non union workers loaf all day?? And who cares how much a CEO is getting paid. The fore mention quotes from above should be credited to the Boss...not an employee who should be thankful he's even it a job. The new American, stick it to the man philosophy...

Too bad we didn't bail out Tweenkies inc. Then we could own 3 failing corporations that only survive because the are propped up by the Gov.
