Then again, I'm a liberal, so unlike conservatives, I believe in the strength of the free market.
I see what you are stuck on, but just don't think you are seeing the whole picture here.
Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain.
Runaway train, never comin' back
Runaway train, tearin' up the track
Runaway train, burnin' in my veins
Surely in this economy the company could have found some stiffs capable of pushing a button and loading pre measured ingredients.
Is the management that incompetent, or do they really do more than that? I don't know. Either way, I'm sorry for you and everyone else looking for a new job, but, no offense, there is no way I would have agreed to those cuts if I worked there.
As it said in that link I posted, it would be hard to replace the job they had, easy to replace the job they were offering.
If the workers are as unskilled as you say they are, then they should be easy enough to replace. It was the company's management that acted like they were impossible to replace and instead chose liquidation. The law would not have prevented them in any way from using replacement workers.
Hilarious to watch those who jumped onto this anti-union bandwagon run and scatter now that the other side is being told.
Guess they jumped the gun too quickly after desperately trying to grab onto something after their ship was sunk just a few weeks ago.
When will conservatives come back to join the rest of us in reality? Not all unions are evil and bad and not all CEOs are the noble "job creators" that should be worshiped.
This brand of deregulation, insider trading, crony capitalism, with execs raiding historic companies merely to rob them of wealth and driving them further into financial instability, and then blaming everything on the workers clearly isn't sustainable nor conducive to an economic recovery.
