    You keep missing the part where the 'experts' have been. Consistently...since this country was formed. If you have a job and work for someone else...odds are pretty good you know that. In this case 18000 people have (or is it 'had' yet?) jobs because of those experts. Those jobs are at risk because those 18000 workers decided they didnt want those jobs.

    That's what I thought... You refuse to answer the question.

    Speaks volumes about the validity of your beliefs.

    In nearly 9,000 posts you, yourself, have made it perfectly clear that there will never be enough labor strikes, environmental laws, business regulations, etc. to satisfy you and half the country agrees with you. Businesses can't investment to grow in this sort of environment.

    I don't know if someone will pick up a brand name like Hostess in this business environment but if someone does they won't be paying non-union workers $18+/hour to work in their factories. They'll be paid roughly minimum wage, perhaps a buck or two more.

    It's clear that to support the American worker and save American jobs Barrack Obama must fire the Hostess CEO, buy the company with taxpayer dollars and put his own person in there. This would not only save jobs it would have have broad American support and save a national icon.

    Maybe, maybe not. We'll have to wait and see.

    I can't tell if you're being facetious.

    Some of the comments are NSFW....but this is an interesting site. Looks like some of those who did not support the strike, some who did, and some trollers.

    Wow, somebody needs a hobby.
