Well why stop there? Give everyone a 100% raise and they can follow Hostess right down the toilet. Forget the shareholders, what skin do they have in the game? They only own the company. It's just their money.
It continues to surprise me how many people think that when labor wins they "earn" it, but when management wins they "stole" it. Don't buyers win at the negotiating table once and a while? Haven't you ever sold a used car for less than your initial asking price? Buyers occasionally have the negotiating power. But stay tuned, skilled labor is becoming more and more scarce. Once worldwide wages have stabilized, labor will win again.
