Anyone else notice

That when Hostess thought they could cut and run with huge bonuses, they had no problem liquidating the entire company but once the government stepped in and said oh hell no to those bonus they all of a sudden decided to negotiate?

4. I guess I missed "the government stepped in" do you have a link?

I have seen lots of posts about how much money the CEO's were giving themselves.

10. Someone should ask former GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney what he thinks.

Does he feel a brotherly kinship with the CEO's of Hostess and the predator class that's eating them alive.

Too many Bains out here. How does the middle class survive with so many leeches sucking it dry?

11. These private equity firms ought to be charged with racketeering

They're busting out long-established businesses, Mafia style. The only difference is that they're upper-class WASPs and they hide behind incorporation.

Private equity firms ought to be outlawed IMO.

12. A perfect example of "suicide Union busting"

 

18,000 lives destroyed because the top dogs won't give the Bakers' Union a fair shake.

"Suicide by union busting" nails it! Thanks for the meme.
