  •  Hedge funds didn't bleed them dry? (5+ / 0-)

    They may be closing their doors because the hedge funds don't see any blood left to suck and are dumping the corpse by the side of the road.

    That doesn't mean they couldn't stay open as a union business.  And if the union had made more concessions, we'd just be at this point next year when the hedge funds came back for more.

    Capital wants to pay zero, ZERO, for labor.  Not one penny.  That is their profit model.  What blame do you want the unions to take?  That they think workers deserve to get paid?
