Unions had Hostess over a barrel in so many ways. Bread and snack cakes could not be delivered in the same truck. Different people had to unload and stock bread and snack cakes. Drivers were not permitted to load or unload.
Some of the same kinds of things that quickly doomed the post office after Jimmy Carter permitted government unions. I lost customers years ago because they had to drive 30 miles to the post office to pay postage due on packages I sent after I weighed them and the local post office weighed them. When the post office went so called private and unionized, the Postmaster General went from $100,000 a year to $800,000. Workers had the same options for health insurance as federal employees but they paid much less and the post office paid more of the costs.
UNIONS ARE A BLACK HOLE OF INEFFICIENCY. Especially government unions, do you ever remember government employees being overworked in sweatshops or enduring poor working conditions? Has there been a child labor problem?
We need more like Governor Scott Walker who released the stranglehold unions had on Wisconsin. There schools were required to buy insurance from union companies at three times the going rate.
Why does President Obama love unions so much? Because they provided half a billion dollars and half a million workers for his campaign. What will be the pay back? Forcing unions on companies and states and doing away with RIGHT TO WORK.
