Don't worry comrades, you can still collect unemployment. WTF if wrong with your union leaders and members?

Read about it earlier on a different website.

Instead of taking a 2% reduction in their pensions, they now get nothin. Their pensions will be liquidated to pay off company debt.

Must suck to be a union member.

Hey, at least the union leaders get to keep their jobs lol <insert sarcasm>. On a serious note, why didn't the striking workers just cross the picket line?

In an economy where you're a) lucky to have a job, b) lucky to have a pension and c) lucky to have health care......these dorks decided to pee it all away.

The problem with unions is that they are so extreme. We actually need support for labor now more than ever, but the unions with power are all high school graduates demanding a doctor's salary and benefits.

And we get it. I like making more than management where I work. That's the way it should be. This place could run easily with half of the company people gone but without half the union workforce it would shut down in a week. The high salaries belong in the working mans pocket too not just the guys that play golf and bullsh!t out front. Btw I am a college grad and PROUD union member.

I like how everyone ignores the corporate greed that causes these situations and at the same time happily attacks working men and women for not taking concessions. I bet the CEO of hostess didn't volunteer to take a pay cut or lose any benefits.

Hey buddy. Hostess headquarters is down here in Texas. Many of the salary office people agreed to pay cuts so they could keep their jobs! Next time do some research before you go spouting off on things you don't know about. The union is at fault for this. This is a lot of jobs to lose suddenly.

And for you other "union proud" people, when the hammer drops on you like it did some people, you wont be so "union proud" anymore. The union cost us our jobs. We got fined if we crossed the picket line. WE WANTED TO WORK. I can't stand the union anymore, it ain't what it was intended to be anymore.

Corporate greed vs Union greed. Is one better or less evil than the other?

I agree with the other person, a job is better than no job. Those people is gonna lose their pensions now. Wonder how much they will still be proud to be union then? Sad.

If a company can't be successful selling junk food to Americans then its obviously not the guy in the assembly lines fault. That is the result if years of mismanagement. I am sure some company guys were gonna take cuts, just not the ones that caused the problems in the first place

Thanks. Mitt won Texas, probably why there wont be a bailout for Hostess from the govt. btw, I do not believe in bailouts anyways. I did not like it when the banks or the automakers got free (yes it was free to them) money off of Americans.
