  •  No, that compensation COULD have (12+ / 0-)

    gone to paying down some of the outrageous debt on Hostess' books.

    6 CEOs in 8 years.  MANAGEMENT fucked over Hostess, not the workers.  They did what they are supposed to do....make the stuff, package the stuff, deliver the stuff.

    And those same workers got screwed in 2005....the last time Hostess declared "bankruptcy".  Pay cuts, layoffs and factory closings, all promised to "turn around" the company.  The workers this time around knew what they were in for.....take the pay cut and STILL get layoffs and factory closings.  So they stood the fuck up.  I'm very proud of them for doing so.  If you know you're going down anyway, fight back as hard as you can.

    David Koch is Longshanks, and Occupy is the real Braveheart.
