Nasty union goons and leaders kill Twinkies....
Riiiight, those nasty union goons gave the CEO a 300% pay raise, along with executive raises of 35 - 80%:
The BCTGM was informed (via the Unsecured Creditor Committee) that the Hostess CEO was awarded a 300% raise (from approximately $750,000 to $2,550,000) prior to the January 11, 2012 bankruptcy filing. Additionally, at least nine additional top executives also received incredible raises ranging from 35% to 80%. For example, one such executive received a pay increase from $500,000 to $900,000. The chief negotiator for Hostess received a pay increase from $375,000 to $656,256.
Dang unions and their greedy CEOs...oh, wait...
Just curious tele, are you happy to be on the wrong side of *every* issue?
