@ScanIAm: the precedence of unions bankrupting the companies is well established. From American car manufacturers, many airline companies and now piece de resistance whole counties, cities and states entering in to dire straits because of union negotiated pension plans.

So cite some examples.  As I read it, hostess became the victim of venture capital and has had no less than 6 CEOs in the last decade.  All of whom walked away with their negotiated salaries.  Why does the negotiation of a union 'cause failure' while the management's negotiation does not?

It doesn't take any particular "philosophy" to look at something and figure out what a disaster it is.

And yet you've done just that using a particularly selfish failure of a philosophy. 

Don't you have some pensions to raid for your lucrative trading practice?
