From your link


If its easy to replace, then take their offer, and start looking for something else, so that in the short time you are looking for a job (since its easy to replace) you will actually have some money coming in. Because some is better than 0.

It is very difficult to find the time to apply and interview for jobs when you are already working a full time job, especially if you are working 1st or 3rd shift. Sometimes dedicating yourself to the job search is a better idea.

Maybe they think Obama will bail them out like he did the Auto workers? Doubt it will happen, not enough voters and they are not all in Ohio and other battleground states.

But the unions might be rescued from their own stupidity by one of Romney's fellow evil 1 percenters.







Leder ran several Romney fundraisers. Of course, by stepping in to save a dying company, he will likely be accused of Vulture capitilism.


i think it was more of a turn-of-phrase...

and also... dude, the "ease of replacement" is not the issue here.

But not as difficult as trying to pay the bills with no money coming in.

I am not necessarily anti union, (although I loathe the teamsters union for purely personal reasons), but when they do something that doesn't seem to be rational, they deserve to be called on it.

I'm surprised we are losing without committing any (apple) turnovers

There were 18,500 people working for Hostess Brands when the company went bankrupt in November, making Twinkies, Wonder Bread and a variety of other brands.But only about 20% to 25% of those jobs will end up returning when all the brands are up and running again, according to estimates by Natalie Everett, a bread and snack industry analyst with IBISWorld. Typically, companies that buy iconic brands like those produced by Hostess invest in equipment and machinery to replace laborers -- which is why the jobs aren't coming back, Everett said.

Teamsters tried to get into the oilfield since the beginning of the year. They're getting laughed at by all the drivers. They even tried to get into a concrete company and only received 15% of the vote. I take unions on a case by case basis.
