About ‘goose’ killers II

Notwithstanding Thomas Sowell going on about John L. Lewis, dead these many years, in his column “Unions killing the goose,” it remains that the pensions and wage rates existing in the private sector for unionized employers derive from negotiations between two sides, labor and management.
Regarding Sowell's comments concerning unionized public employees, the story is different, and his points are certainly worthy of attention.
As for Twinkies, Wonder Bread, aka “gummy white bread,” and such other products offered, given their makers' history of multiple bankruptcies, why the CEO receives compensation in excess of $1 million per year is also an attention-worthy question, one that begs answers.
Concerning work rules, Sowell described some; outlandish as they seem, the stork didn't leave them in the lobby of corporate headquarters — they are/were the joint creation of labor and management.
Seems there is enough blame for all to have a share.
