Petulant. Yeah that's what people who want a decent wage they can live on are. I'm sure you would be just fine with an 8% pay cut and a 30% cut in benefits, but not everyone is. Of course the owners won't talk to the union, they'll just go bankrupt, fire everyone and get rid of their pension obligations (Romney style) which is what this is really about, and then "reemerge" from bankruptcy and hire new people at minimum wage and no benefits. Of course, there was never any thought of management cutting their 6 and 7 figure salaries. Petulant. yeah, right.

Um, liquidate means selling off all assets and dissolving the company. Please get a clue before embarrassing yourself.

I'm sure all the lower income households who are currently benefitting from Wal-Mart's low price structure are going to be more than happy to pay the price increases union benefits will demand.

Yes, but like the poster above, it's easier to act and feel morally superior than it is to engage in the discussion.

Cammm.. here is the idea.. if you want to make your point, you can't just show up and call people stupid.. you must provide ideas to counter their ideas.. if just call folks names..its YOU that looks stupid, not them.

You need to take econ 101 since in post after post you have clearly demonstrated you know nothing about business.

But true never-the-less. Anything that leads to higher prices in the marketplace whether it is increased regulation, taxation, or that drives up operating expenses for businesses is like a tax on the poor.

Stupid obviously doesn't work or these stupid WalMart workers wouldn't be thinking of striking.

Hostess employees insisted on continuing a strike, even as management noted that the company couldn't survive a prolonged union action. Now the employees won't have jobs at all, as their action has forced the company to liquidate.

On Black Friday, some Wal-Mart employees are planning on staging a walkout to protest alleged retaliation for employees who criticize the company. (Not surprisingly, union organizers -- angry that Wal-Mart isn't unionized -- are behind a lot of the controversy.)

Perhaps what all these petulant employees don't realize is that companies are in business to earn a profit.  If they can't, there...
