You Keep Telling Yourselves That, You Drooling Dimwits

(H/t LC & IB Mike Hendrix).

Talk about learning all the wrong lessons from a pretty straight-forward class in real life consequences:

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Labor leaders in Maine say the resilience of the Hostess workers on the picket line at the company’s Biddeford plant, which is in the process of being shut down after the company on Friday said it would liquidate the business, gives them inspiration in the face of what they believe have been ongoing efforts — by politicians, including Gov. Paul LePage, and corporate investors — to reduce union influence.

Bakers’ union officials and their supporters say also that the demise of Hostess Brands Inc., which failed to convince striking workers to return to their jobs, is a warning sign for corporate investors seeking to squeeze more profits out of the working class.

“Unions have been losing power for years,” said Ken Rumney, a striking worker outside of the Hostess plant in Biddeford on Friday. “This is an exceptional case. If Hostess had been allowed to get away with what they’d been trying to do, other corporations would have lined up to try the same tactics. Hopefully, this will be an example to other companies not to [try to] break their unions.”

Let us just first state for the record that you’re obviously as dumb as a sack full of hammers. Very, very dumb hammers.

Then let’s go to agreeing with you that this most certainly will be an example to other companies, but it won’t be quite the example that you “hope” it to be. What it will teach them is to do everything they possibly and legally can to avoid ever hiring unionized labor ever again, one of which would be to exclusively set up shop in Right to Work states. As a citizen of the Republic of Texas, all we can say is “thanks y’all for the business.”

As to what other lessons there might be in this whole Bakers’ Union cutting off their noses to spite their faces deal, there is one that immediately comes to mind: There are about 13,000 suddenly “funemployed” former coworkers of you bakers who didn’t vote to lose their jobs. They might have a dim view of you fuckwits today, ‘s all we’re saying.

Thatisall.

We were told Romney intended to kill Big Bird.

The press kinda overlooked that Obama’s biggest supporters intended to kill Twinkie the Kid.

Guam

Better not send too many people there. Isn’t that the island that that one congresscritter said would tip over if it had too many people?

ND and SD, iirc have the lowest unemployment in the country. ND has two military bases (no fair! We’re bigger, and we only get one!). Nebraska’s unemployment is something like 4%…virtually nonexistent.

Even though I retired recently (with a so-so payout) from a major airline (union), I’m not ready for the rocking chair. Looking for another job, non-union, as I’ve had enough of the socialist mindset. I had enough finally of watching the union’s biggest supporters come on shift, break out the newspaper and portable TV – work, the idea of being… Read more »

This is the 2012 list I pulled down. Did Alaska change recently or did I miss something?

Yeah but they also got nukes so they win. Bush emptied Elsworth’s missile fields but left the B-1s…asshole.

Wonder what’s going to happen in these Right-to-Work states if Øbama manages to give the unions Card Check.

And how many Union executives are going to be losing THEIR jobs over this?

I’m guessing none. Looks like pretty much all the jobs lost are….workers.

And these idiots will continue to think their leadership looks out for them.

Unions are the bastard child of poor management. We don’t need unions today given all the regulatory protections workers have now. It’s not like the days of the Triangle shirt factory and early 20th century working conditions.

Now, if the governor would change his mind about the stupid healthcare exchanges, we’d have the icing on the cake.

LC Light29ID @ #:1 Light, you left Oklahoma off your list. We’ve been Right To Work for better than 15 years now. We also have a pretty low cost of living. Housing is in good supply. I-35 and I-40 intersect in Oklahoma City, so we have more than adequate transportation infrastructure. We’re also a Shall Issue and Castle Doctrine state.… Read more »

Interestingly, a new study reveals that 72% of the new jobs created from June 2009 to September 2012 were created in right-to-work states. Although those states account for only about 40% of the U.S. population, they created 1.86 million of the 2.59 million new jobs created during that time. Unions don’t have a leg to stand on when they claim… Read more »

On Friday, Hostess filed in bankruptcy court to liquidate the company. With extreme prejudice. Today, Rayburn seeks court permission to start selling off pieces. So now all 18,500 workers at Hostess Brands just lost their jobs. Way to go guys! Bake me a lie, as fast as you can. Brace yourself for a wave of union propaganda-as-apologia. You’ll hear Obama-echoes… Read more »
