  •  The business practices you describe (13+ / 0-)

    were the same brand of double-dealing and licensed thievery that Romney used to make his fortune.  And that was the "business savvy" that attracted voters to him?  Horrifying and completely unAmerican.

    I'm sad you've lost your job, but this kind of chicanery has to be outlawed if the workers of our country are to survive big business.

      it hasn't been with such a high profile brand.  Everyone knows about twinkies - it's part of the zeitgeist (ooh, I love being able to use that word!).

      So people are talking about it.  We don't need a commercial to get the word out there.

      Even if it's an argument where the Right insists it's a result of "union thuggery" and where the Correct says it's the result of vulture capitalism, it's an argument being conducted outside of campaign ads and union halls.

      I'm thinking there needs to be an appeal of any and all court decisions in this case.  The higher the court, the bigger the precedent.  Stealing money employees put into a fund cannot be legal - in this case only the court said so - IANAL but seems to me there's no specific law that says "you can't steal from their bank accounts but if they're foolish enough to believe you will deal squarely with them, you can take their self-funded pensions".

      If so, I want to see it.  And if so, it's a law that needs to be challenged all the way up to SCOTUS if it has to so it stops happening.

      Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama
