Are you allowed to call me a racist on here Danny? Since you and your other personalities love to report those who do not agree with your socialist views I think I shall lower my standards and play along with you. Lets play by Topix rules.

two hedge funds that own Hostess ran the company into the ground. They've looted it as much as they can, giving Hostess executives stunning raises this year (the CEO got a 300% raise). Now they've made insane demands of their labor which already took the brunt of the 2004 bankruptcy, savings that were never put back into the company. The owners are framing the unions, plain and simple.

According to the article, some started to cross the lines in spite of union threats to be fined for doing so. But, it wasn't enough to keep the company afloat.

So yeah, they showed 'em, now the owners still have their retirement and the workers, instead of an 8% cut in pay and bennies, now get to have a 100% cut in pay and bennies. And, you know, there's just lots and lots of jobs out there to just go and grab.

Should've taken the cut in pay, better than no job at all....

Ya those morons should have taken more pay cuts, cuts in health care, time off etc. Hell, people should work for free and be glad they are working. Also stop complaining when they make min wage, working 60 to 70 hours a week while management takes 300% pay increase. Your right Hostess should have a dedicated workforce, what is the problem?

Get freakin real. People complain because Wal Mart goes to third word countries where people are paid pennies yet don't have a problem with corporate america being turned into the same thing by the greedy.

Unions WERE on their way out because working conditions had gotten better. Now there is once again a need for the unions to stand up for the middle class.

Hostess strike continues despite threat of liquidation

Some of the workers said bring on liquidation. They hope that would mean another company may buy some of the iconic Hostess brands and the plant in Biddeford would be continue to operate but under a different owner.

The free market has spoken; not sure why the employees are taking the blame. Seems like Hostess couldn't stay competitive and the cost of labor is only a piece of the puzzle. I thought you people who read the WSJ understood economics? Maybe not. By the way, the new CEO is a hatchet man so no surprise this is where this ended up. There is now a convenient scapegoat that all you righties like to blame everything on for Hostess closing. Yes it's those disgusting people who want a living wage, health care, safe workplaces, vacations, etc. Man, those little people want everything!

Here's the thing, I know there are many folks out there today, who would love to have that job at that "cut rate" salary. so, greedy or not, if the owners can't sustain the profitability of the company, they cannot remain in business.

Sure, sales are down, more competition, rising costs.Sometimes companies must cut back, But, the way I see it in this case, the union are the ones who are refusing to budge, and therefore, over 18,000 workers are now unemployed.
Lay the blame where you will, but, these are tough economic times, sometimes you gotta compromise.

Yes, and Papa John could compromise by not giving away a million free pizzas and instead do the right thing and put the cost of that giveaway towards treating his employees like human beings - a.k.a. provide healthcare. Instead he'd rather use Obamacare as a boogeyman excuse to allow him to continue being a cheapskate towards the people that are the backbone of his fortune.

He said in the past Obamacare would force him to increase the price of his shitty pizzas by 14 cents. WOW that is just too expensive! My $12 shitty pizza now costs $12.14! The horror! I would definitely buy a shitty pizza for $12, but add 14 cents to that and you've crossed the line, buddy!
