If my Math is correct he was getting paid about $11000 a month or $132000 a year to drive a delivery truck? Plus full a fully paid medical and pension plan? No wonder they went under.
Heh, “failure to represent”. Hate to see what the union contracts actually state.
I hope these Ding Dongs laid in their supply of Twinkies. Maybe they can sell them on ebay.
It would never occur to them to blame themselves, they are democrats.
Look for the union label.
If they’re dumb enough to join the union, they deserve the punishment.
Looks to me like the unions have another bread and butter ticket. Who cares about 18,000 folks when there is WALMART to conquer!
How much power will the unions/Obama have then? And how much more will America have lost? Black Friday protests are coming and they mean business. It’s going to be a very ugly Friday and our Zippy is instigating it. He has a one track mind I’m thinkin’.
So. why don’t a bunch of unions get together and buy the company and run it the way they wish? Wouldn’t that prove to the world that the union way is the best way? hehe.
All went according to plan.
My first try, and hubby LOVES them. You have to play with the amount of batter you put in the shallow pan, they make 6 halves at a time. I used cream cheese frosting for the filling. There choices are nearly endless. You need a pipping bag if you do the lady finger pan to fill them...just yellow cake mix, don't forget the milk for added moisture.
[Doug Mansky, a Hostess driver in Detroit and a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, was in the process of moving to a cheaper condominium on Tuesday, after his union had agreed to an 8% pay cut that he said would shave $200 a week from his income. After Judge Drain cleared Hostess to impose the same new labor terms on the bakers union, they went on strike.]
That means he was making $120,000 a year plus benefits. After the 8% cut he would have been making $110,400 plus benefits (including a 3% annual raise starting next year). Wonder what his unemployment will pay?
UN...FRIGGIN... BELIEVABLE. This self-centered jerk is making $2500.00 a WEEK as a delivery driver of cupcakes? That is $10,000 dollars a MONTH, $120,000 dollars a year (Not to mention all his healthcare benefits, pension/s, etc.) and he wants my heart to bleed because he has to move out of his mansion in a gated community into a mansion in a not so gated community? F*** 'EM. Salaries like this is what has driven so many unionized companies out of business and/or overseas. No wonder the prices of everything is skyrocketing.
Sheeeeeez.... When will people pull their heads out?
"God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
Now they are eligible for ObamaFone!!! And eternal unemployment benefits
If this is true then it wasn't the Baker's Union that was bankrupting the company but the Teamsters and they weren't striking and pulling down over $120,000/yr. I wonder bread wonder why???? Unless he misspoke and meant $200 a month which is a more credible $30,000 + bennies.
So the workers didn’t care if the company they worked for went under, just as long as someone else bought them and out and they could benefit by it. SCREW ‘EM
Typical liberals - slow learners. Now that the company they used to work for is dead, now that they are losing their high-pay unskilled jobs, and now that it’s too late to change the outcome - finally they are learning. The union used them and then killed their jobs because the goons decided the showdown would be good for union leaders in general, regardless of the damage to union workers.
“Laid off”? I thought they were on strike.
Now they’re FIRED.
Too bad about the suckers who fell for their scam, though. At least Sandy will provide a lot of used, wet cars for them to live in, so all is not lost.
