Striking Obama union thugs are shutting down Hostess Company . Now the company warns if the strike doesn't end soon, They will liquidate and dissolve. I watched as mostly black strike workers pumped their Obama fist at the company with smiles. I guess they will enjoy being jobless and on Obama extended unemployment I eman fun=unemployment for the next 4 years until they scream for an Obama third term. Really so pitiful to see what union thugs have done to business in our great country, They wonder why Obama and his liberal union hack and thugs have caused so many jobs to be lost in America in outsourcing and shut downs . Keep on striking and we can truly call ourselves England the land of the geratest discontent and endless double dip recessions.

Anybody actually think that Hostess crap tastes good? Their bread has so much air pumped in the dough that it's stale by the time it hits the store shelves. Their other snacks are so full of bullshit fillers & preservatives that they are sickening.
Of course when you add union to the mix, the companies have to stay competitively price, so quality always suffers in products puked out at union shops. Just look at the automotive industry.

Is it unions, or union busting? If a company doe's not make a profit, whose fault is it, labor, or management?

Why don't you tell us? Obviously you don't seem to think that today's unions choke management, and the very company they work for, to the point of asphyxiation.
Why is it that the 'other' automakers in this country never have the same problems as the big three? But their emplyees meke a decent wage, and disregard efforts by union thugs to "organize" them?

I worked a short stint as a teamster. Most of my work life was in a non-union, merit based job. I made better than union wage. I am sorry you missed the point, I will try to be clearer. Labor works, provides labor, management makes sure they work to a point where their company makes a profit. If management can not make a profit, they become more efficient, raise prices, cut employees . to raise bottom line to profitibility. Are you part of management at Hostess? Can you provide the answer? I have no idea what a Hostess baker makes. If however they break the union, will Hostess come back with a $15.00 an hour non-union job that doe's not provide much of a living? It is my opinion tha a laborer that preforms his or her job title is due a living wage.

If your in a union and you don't like the pay, find yourself a marketable skill and get a better job. Quit relying on extortion to force your employer to pay you more than they think you're worth... (Which they probably have been doing since the very first day you walked in the door)

Where do we find one of these?
No, I'm not in mgmnt at a union shop. But my 50+ years experience with unions, including teamsters 135, carpenters, uaw, millwrights, etc...has given me plenty of cred. I really do know a lot of the behind the scenes crap that unions are involved in.
But nobody cares...they will always look at the business owner as being the villain.

I guess that was part of what I was trying to say, jobs that provide a living wage are rapidly disapearing. Most manufacturing jobs in this area start at $10.00 an hour, and then they work you till you drop, 21 days work, one day off, repeat.

But think of all the wonderful taxpayer provided benefits that await people who force their employers into bankruptcy. Unions - don't you just love them.

There is a silver lining in all this. As more and more unions bankrupt their employers it is exactly like parasites killing their hosts. Soon there is nothing to feed off and the parasites die off.

About ten years ago I was working for a manufacturing company where the union went on strike for a few days. The company offered a contract where annual pay increases were about 2% and health insurance premiums were significantly higher. The union voted to strike but changed their mind once it became clear that the employer had plans in place to outsource the entire operation to a non union facility.

The same thing is about to happen with Hostess. If the union does not accept the last best offer from the company then the company will find some way to have their products made elsewhere and the employees will be scrounging for minimum wage work when it comes time to find a new job.

Funny how all of the left "Judge it" icons are on all of the post but anything negative about the left doesn't show up on the icons?

Frederich Goebbels would be proud of these kool-aid drinking media brainwashed Obama yard implements.
Good thing this site has an unbiased moderator and not some dipshit Obama entitlement recipient moderating.

Anybody can dump bags of flour into a mixer. Anybody can press the "mix" button. Anybody can stack cartons of product. Yet these guys think they have some special quality that demands whatever pay they ask for.

Go put in your application at the Obamaphone factory. Business should be booming soon.

Ralph as tall as you are, You still got no brains. You never did it seems, Stick to throwing darts Ralph. Least you can pin the dart in the bullseyes with such a long reach.You can play with those Donnie and ,Marie Osmond dolls.I would say Obama and his wife busted his own unions jobs up. Go ahead stirke more and see what happens as more companies layoff and cut hours and pay to the bone to keep from being ruined from Obama care and his thug unions who commit crimes and threaten business and other workers who cross the picket lines. Hoffa Jr has Obama's full blessing to even kill Tea Party people.

Ralph maybe you need to blame you're Dem party for allowing illegals into our country to bustup you're precious unions with cheap labor. Obama is the head Union thug now . I'd love to see what you say about those illegals Ralphy , Those illegals who only work the jobs we wont work. I guess the new company that takes over Hostess will hire mostly illegals =)So whose really busting up those unions ?

Good for the company! Refuse to be abused!

At some point people in many professions need to accept they are grossly overpaid.
