    You're speaking out of total ignorance.

    i'm glad that this amuses you, as you are so very, very , very poorly informed as to what was going on.

    it is an argument for someone who has nothing to offer to the conversation other than the right wing talking points he has been fed.

    Oh, I see. Hostess went out of business because its evil, greedy, capitalist slave driving management wanted to keep all the money and pay the workers $1 per hour. Is that what your left wing BS blogs have told you?

    Ok, so what are you denying, that outsourcing mainly happened in the 80s and 90s? Or that Unions were in the decline at that time period? (maily due to reagan's administration no longer enforcing labor laws).

    If the unions were to sign up all of the millions of walmart employees---would the union make money? Would the union bosses get higher pay? Would the walmart customers pay higher prices?

    Your position on this is foolish and uninformed. We have laws on the books in every state to protect workers from abuse and poor working conditions, unions do nothing but inflate prices and fill their own pockets.

They do actually have to apply what they know because they are actually involved in policy making, and often employed by businesses.)
    I own a business. I am trying it out. We participate in things like food drives, volunteer our services to help with a given cause and make wage decisions on what generates an employee that strives a little bit harder for the business and its been paying off.

    CSR is the idea a business is part of the community and giving back is not only good for the bottom line in the long run but generates good will and positive PR amongst the community.

    Its not an ivory tower concept. If bad PR were put into dollars every incident of bad PR costing 1$ would cost you 5$ worth of advertising to correct.

    Your inability to not know what the sam hell you are talking and do so with authority is amazing.
