If I was the CEO of a corporation that the unions were running into the ground, I'd take the money and run, too. No reason not to.

Nice to see those Christian morals so blatantly displayed.

one year ago:

Some creditors question Hostess pay raises approved in late July a year ago

Brian Driscoll, CEO, around $750,000 to $2,550,000
Gary Wandschneider, EVP, $500,000 to $900,000
John Stewart, EVP, $400,000 to $700,000
David Loeser, EVP, $375,000 to $656,256
Kent Magill, EVP, $375,000 to $656,256
Richard Seban, EVP, $375,000 to $656,256
John Akeson, SVP, $300,000 to $480,000
Steven Birgfeld, SVP, $240,000 to $360,000
Martha Ross, SVP, $240,000 to $360,000
Rob Kissick, SVP, $182,000 to $273,008

Now: We demand salary rollbacks of union workers, an end to pension payments, a reduction of benefit costs!

And you can't figure out why the workers would strike. No wonder American business is in the crapper, with "let them eat cake" support like yours. I remember when Lee Iacocca cut his own salary to $1 a year so he could look the union negotiators in the eye and say "We're all in this together." It appears that no one in management at Hostess - or across a litany of other American enterprises - is that smart.
