Short-sighted Petulance

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 is nothing with which to pay employees (or hire more of them).  So while it may be emotionally satisfying to "stick it to the man" through strikes and protests, perhaps the disgruntled should take a look around, realize that the economy isn't too great, and keep in mind that they may end up doing serious damage to companies they are counting on to help them feed their families.

Sure, if the companies go out of business, the unemployed will get government benefits.. . for awhile.  But after awhile, if too many businesses go under, who exactly is supposed to provide the tax revenues that subsidize those benefits?
