Good for them. Unions are outdated and unnecessary.(Unless you are a Muslim and need an election bought.)

18,500 more unemployed today. Great job unions and President Obey-Me!

Where is the Twinkie bail out? Surely if Obama can bail out the car companies he could bail out Hostess.

They aren't a big enough union for him to care, plus he no longer needs re-elected.

Good for Hostess!!!
How stupid can people be that will bargain their selves right out of a job???

Just more stupid people who have NO idea what it's like to own and operate a business, and then the idiots listen to the idiotic liberal talking points that all businesses are just filthy rich and they need to give them all of their money and in their miniscule minds they believed that they are owed and more than deserving!

Stupidity is running rampant in the USA and it's destroying this Country!!!
Thank you liberalism! IDIOTS!!!

But, but...weren't they a REPUBLICAN run company??????

Shouldn't the national REPUBLICAN party be proposing ways to save them from the evil union????????..but....only...c rickets?.....

But in reality I'm pretty sure of what happened:

Hostess begins to "cheap out" back around the 70's or 80's. The present Hostess desert products are merely cheap copies of the original product. It didn't happen all at once, but happen it did, while at the same time other manufacturer's products gained a toe-hold. This left the market wide open to even more compition (you can see them on the shelves) and Hostess lost market share. And this has been going on for years and years.

Getting out now was just a smart business move saving them from bankruptcy down the road, but they tried to show it wasn't mismanagement but the evil unions that brought them low. I believe this is so corporate can cover all the egg on their faces.

Shows how much you know , you idiot!

First off, due to incompetent management, this is the second bankruptcy for Hostess in less than 10 years, plus, the workers already conceded almost 50% in pay and benefits...

But you are a stupid greedy conservative moron who wants to get top dollar and buy things for a song and expects everyone else to work for peanuts...

You are not worth a spit!!

And are in the process of killing the economy. Check the labor stats for right to work states. Unemployment in those states is not nearly as high as in other states that aren't right to work.

And now there are 18,000 more added to the Obama unemployment list. I had heard that even the Teamsters Union was telling the bakers to take the deal.

The real truth be know is that many of the Hostess employees were already looking for other work because their pay was already cut to the point where they will be coming out ahead by collecting unemployment....

Maybe so, but according to today's Sac Bee the California jobless rate is the lowest it has been in 4 years...

Also, don't forget that many of those "right to work states" take in more federal money ( read California's money) than they put in...
