I was listening to the Ben Ferguson show yesterday and he made a good point.
If you are making twinkies, you don't really deserve to make a lavish living. Why be unionized?
You think kids say "I want to bake twinkies when I grow up!!"
If you are a baker at Hostess, you just aren't worth that much, I am sorry. Not trying to be mean, but do you honestly think you deserve $25 an hour plus benefits and retirement putting cream filling into a damn sponge cake? It's not like that takes a lot of work. How exactly can you work your arse off making twinkies?
I love when unions whine about corporate greed and how much CEOs make, but never seem to complain about how much their union bosses make who live lavish lifestyles and eat at the finest restraunts and fly around on private jets on the backs of union dues.

Sucks. My Uncle is a driver for them. All the drivers agreed to these terms a few years ago and took a pay cut but the bakers refused. Now he's unemployed at 50 something and taking care of his mother as well.
