I’ve been seeing it treated as axiomatic that, of course, workers killed Hostess. It never even seems to have occurred to the Party of Personal Responsibility that the people who were, oh what’s the world I’m looking for?, responsible for managing Hostess might have just a teensy weensy something to do with the company’s death:
It’s fascinating to me the endless amount of excuse-making that is made for the rich and powerful and the blame so easily heaped on the families who suffering at their incompetent and corrupt hands. Dry your tears. Hostess had already awarded the company’s top four executives raises of between 75 and 80 percent, even though the company had already hired restructuring lawyers, according to the WSJ. So long as the right sort of people get obscenely rich as a reward for this incompetence and greed, that’s all that matters. It’s not like depriving the worker of his wages is a sin that cries out to heaven for vengeance or anything. It’s just “prudential judgement” doncha know.
