What was their choice? With unions, it's difficult if not impossible to find replacements for union people. Unions will harass and even threaten non-union replacement workers. How was Hostess supposed to continue business with no workers?
By honoring its contract. By not paying out outrageous bonuses.

Hostess was a victim of vulture capitalists, not unions. But Rush will never say that so you won't learn that.

We're not talking about who was right and who was wrong, we were talking about who actually closed Hostess, and it was the unions. If Hostess was a non-union operation, they would be open today in spite of what their CEO's made. Workers would have walked off the job, and Hostess would just hire other people to do the work.

That is your assumption. You assume Hostess would have found people like you who would work for them for any pay and under any conditions. You assume that Hostess wanted to stay open. Hostess was being operated by vulture capitalist firms, you know like Bain, whose only goal is to suck as much money out of a company as they can.

What is a public service job?

why?

robots can do it.

all of it.

robots will be the future for what was union assembly jobs.

scanners will replace all cashiers.

see gas stations as model for fact check

remember the employee that checked your oil while they filled up the car; and washed the windows.

scanners replaced them.

the USA is not the only market to sell something; and if Americans boycott something, there is plenty of fish to sell to out of America.

you along with many require a dose of reality.

As America fumbles, the opportunity out of America escalates for the ambitious.

There is a vote next week to have Michigan become a right to work state. It can't be stopped by elected state management because they all want Michigan to be a right to work state.

Michigan becoming a right to work state cripples all unions across this country.

of course the teachers union is protected; and is only group spending money to complain about the upcoming vote.

you want to see income really get separated into have and have nots, then watch close.

ambitious folk will eliminate 50% of current jobs; and replace them with a scanner of some type.

Yeah, reality. Like a Romney landlside, a stock market crash on November 7, violent revolution, impeachment trials, and Texas dividing into 5 smaller states? You mean that reality? Oh my.

The union didn't close the company. The company chose not to live up to its contract with the employees and closed. Only the company can close the company.
Sry Chee, have to disagree on this one. The company seems to have closed primarily because of the trucker union contract. That contract created a inefficient duplication of employment that created an excessive expense that cost the bakers union workers their jobs. To a point, I fault the ownership that signed the truckers union contract. The company had 2 choices at that time, agree or disagree. They agreed. BUT the other choice was to shut down then. Instead Hostess shut down now, timing is the only difference. But the union pushed that. I guess that owners accepted the trucker contract with the expectation of continuing business, NOT closing business.
This is a classic example of a struggling company getting involved with a capital finance group...Borderline Solvency, regular banks won't take the risks under certain circumstances. They truly wanted to stay open or the money drys up. These Capital Finance companies do NOT set up to shut companies down! They stand to make more money IF the company survives in the long run or until it can be or restructured resold.
If you ask about the CEO in charge of shutting the company down being approved of $125,000 a month salary, I would like to hear the federal bankruptcy judge explain that too. But that was the courts decision, NOT Hostess, NOT the union or even the capital finance company

Can't honor monetary issues without real money. Only the government can do that & does with historic frequency.
The courts approved the bonuses that I think that you are posting about. If I am wrong about that last point, just let me know.
Bankruptcies are special courts like criminal, divorce/family, traffic etc. THEY are the law. We may disagree but we have to trust them because the numerous sides are represented by their own lawyers. No real choice.

Interesting. They don't want to be held to the Contract, so they are pulling a Bain.

These figures have been deemed a Hoax. Real number for Fox viewers is 69 IQ.A study released last week claims that Fox News viewers have an average IQ of 80 - which is 20 points lower than the national average.

The study has won national media attention via Yahoo News, where it's been Tweeted 500+ times and gained over 600 comments. It's become one of the top ten "hot" politics topics on Reddit, and it was also written up at the Daily Paul.

Unfortunately, the study looks a lot like a hoax.

The Yahoo story is based on a press release supposedly published by the "Intelligence Institute," a supposed think-tank that doesn't exist. The press release provides no links to the "Institute" or to the study the only link takes you to an unrelated study published by Fairleigh Dickinson University in May.

The study's alleged author, P. Nichols, told a remarkably unconvincing story when reached by phone. He explained to PJMedia's Charlie Martin that he couldn't release the study because of a confidentiality agreement. And he confessed to a very dubious method: he collected data by calling households in rural areas where he suspected residents would be ill-informed and uneducated. In other words, he deliberately chose study participants likely to seem "low IQ."

"Nichols" also cited a spurious-sounding motive for his study: he told PJMedia that it was commissioned by a Republican group who wanted to discredit the Tea Party (and presumably Fox-watching) sector of the GOP.

Via Yahoo News, Reddit, and PJMedia.

Hostess Bankruptcy: Company Files For Bankruptcy Just Two ... www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/11/hostess-ban...

MAE ANDERSON and MICHELLE CHAPMAN 01/11/12 04:33 PM ET .... Hostess Reenters Bankruptcy Less Than Three Years After ... Hostess Brands, Maker of ...
Excerpt From Above Link.

This company has tremendous potential if we can remove the barriers to success," Driscoll said.

The Teamsters Union, which represents about 7,500 of Hostess' delivery drivers and merchandisers, said in a statement on Wednesday that it is also committed to working toward a solution.

The company's filing comes nearly three years after its predecessor emerged from bankruptcy proceedings. That company, called Interstate Bakeries and based in Kansas City, Mo., filed for bankruptcy protection in 2004 and changed its name to Hostess Brands after it emerged in 2009.

Hostess said Wednesday that its previous efforts to change, including the prior Chapter 11, were insufficient. Under its most recent bankruptcy filing, it is looking to restructure into a "strong, competitive" company.

In its filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, Hostess listed about $860 million in debt. The company's biggest unsecured creditor is the Bakery & Confectionary Union & Industry International Pension Fund, which it owes about $944.2 million.

In the filing, Hostess also listed its estimated assets between $500 million and $1 billion and its estimated liabilities at more than $1 billion.

The Irving, Texas-based company said that it will be able to maintain routine operations thanks to a $75 million financing commitment from a group of lenders led by Silver Point Capital LP.

robots will perform these unskilled functions moving forward; and scanners replace cashiers.

Michigan as early as next Monday may become a right to work state.

as you cheer your election win, in reality you lose.

over the cliff we all will go; and no debt ceiling raise.

taxes will be raised on everyone; and the govt shutdown to any new spending.

your trash talk is quite humorous.

you think you won; but expect 4 years more of the same with a forced balanced budget, which will eliminate the possibility of Obamacare being implemented.

IQ?....well it would appear those dummies you want to scream about just played you like a drum.

Unions will be destroyed by Michigan's right to work state, Obamacare won't be implemented; and that 47% that pays zero federal income tax will be very soon will be. A forced balanced budget has just been imposed for the next 4 years.

you go ahead and blame the GOP all you want; but remember 49% of this nation is cheering.
