the hostess company

has anyone looked into the hostess company and when they went into bankruptcy? It was in 2004 I believe that was the height of the Bush years!
Since that time they have got concession after concession from it's workers while the top management has increased it's income by over 300%! yup this had been the trend corporation took in that era! you remember low or no raises ,freeze on wages as much as possible-cutback Bennie's-give to the rich! runaway gas prices-runaway health insurance premiums-roll back all the checks and balances to protect the ruling class! Enron was typical of the scams workers lost their future!
You see those managers for hostess will continue to live well while the workers who are arse over tea kettle in debt have already lost it all!
I say we ought to have a law that extracts any wealth that the top management has and distributed to the workers they sucked dry!

2. Taxes

Tax those outrageous bonuses they give themselves. The more they take, the bigger the percentage they pay in taxes.
