Denny's announces raising their prices. 

Callers vent about self employment costs.
One caller vents about the rising costs of opening a small business in Tucson. He lists specifics including water valves, building permits, sewer connection fees,  taxes and more. Another caller explains he was drowning in paperwork rather than swimming in sales of his business. One caller explains if you own a home and a business, you get taxed twice with property taxes; one for the home and the other for the business building.

Caller Cody supports the Union, argues Hostess won't shut down.
Cody supports the union and argues with Jon. Jon states Unions are destroying jobs, they aren't as good as they used to be.  Cody promotes the benefits unions give. Justice promotes self choice of jobs. Cody argues, the company is limiting wages, cutting back on benefits and the union workers stood up. Justice argues because of the demand of higher wages by the union,the company is facing a financial struggle and can not meet their demands, so they have to make a business decision. 

Callers express how Unions are too demanding, putting employees at risk of losing jobs while the Business is actually taking on more of the financial risk.

Callers point out other places are cutting back wages too; like the military.
