What he is saying is simple economics. Companies that cannot compete in the marketplace must be allowed to fail. That freight hauled by Yellow will not disappear. It will still travel on trucks that require drivers in the seats, workers on the docks, mechanics in the shops and people in the offices. Companies always right size to handle the workload. Economies only grow when government gets out of the way and lets the market work.
The government bailed out General Motors and Chrysler. That was wrong. Properly managed companies would have filled the void and produced enough cars to meet demand. They would have hired enough people to meet the challenge.
Blade you are so all knowing. I thought you were leaving.:438:

However, one idiot that buys up multiple profitable companies, then tries to run them in ground just because they are represented by a Union should be held accountable as well as his partners in crime. All of the companies bought up by Zollars including Yellow were doing just fine before he went on his buying spree with money he nor Yellow had. There is a special place for heartless thugs like him that have no problem ruining the lives of thousands of people for his own personal gain or agenda.
Let's start with this, Zollars was the CEO, an employee. He could buy nothing without the approval of a board of directors. Yellow, YRC etc. only bought companies that were looking to be bought. They only bought companies that were for sale. Plenty of blame to go around.

I don't believe Zollars operated alone.
This was planned by others for years before imo.
Who were the top investors who hired Zollars?
And who were here as he was onboard?
And who are still here?

Economics is more political than scientific imo.

Imagine how much railroad engineers should make when they operate trains a mile or more long!!!
Imagine how much money has actually been saved and made by business since going from single, small and short trailers to doubles, wides, talls, longs and trains.


.......and here we sit.....hoping they don't steal our pensions again....or cut our pay.....or any other robbery you can think of

Small.....they paid full rate that the senior Hoffa could get. And everybody got what they were due.

The bigger they got...the more they made.....the more they want.
And the more we have been trained like monkeys to think we should do more for nothing.

And what part of “partners in crime” did you not understand? That is where the “Plenty of blame to go around” would fall.

But they all drink the yellow kool aid! Never had to work for a living! Always had someone to wipe there a—! Or to many people on the payroll, so they could sleep for hours! Never accountable! For a days work! That’s why yellow kept buying companies raping them and closing them!!!

Oh yeah where’s this place? As he enjoys all of his gains. There’s no special place. Rich get richer while poor get poorer. It’s simple. It’s been like this sense mankind started. Every single one of us has a choice…
