You clearly have no conception of the difference between an employee and an employer. Employee loses a job, he goes and gets another. Employers business goes under, he loses the business his house, and all his assets. Maybe we should just confiscate the assets of the employees if the business fails?

Ditto brother, I've started my land surveying business two years ago. Just my brother and me, we never borrowed a dime (couldn't) we both sold evertyhing we had, almost lost our house (our office). Two years later, I now have four employees not including me. It has been hard, 7 days a week and 15 hours a day for me. But I'm proud to still be working and am looking to hire another person. If one of my people ever mutter the word "Union" I'd pull the .45 from my desk and knee cap them.

Clearly, all companies are llc's right? If it is so easy to start a company and get rich, thus the rich do not deserve their wealth, why pray tell are the workers not starting their own businesses?

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...
