Junk food enthusiasts everywhere can celebrate, as the return of Twinkies is assured. The cream-filled golden cakes synonymous with childhoods past will be on shelves as early as July. They will be accompanied by Ho Hos, Zingers and Ding Dongs, but won’t be made by employees belonging to labor unions.

The company that bought the division of Hostess responsible for the production of Twinkies will set up shop in multiple locations across the country and bring jobs back to Columbus, Georgia and Emporia, Kansas–two locations that closed following the demise of Hostess Brands, Inc. amid a labor dispute last November. Investment groups Metropoulos and Apollo Global Management (NASDAQ:APO) bought the brands along with other Dolly Madison products following a public outcry about the disappearance of the classic junk food staple.

NBC News reported that many of the company’s old plants will reopen after it hires non-union employees to fill the vacated Teamsters and Bakery Union positions. Michael Cramer, Executive VP of the new Hostess, seemed adamant in his attempt to avoid working with unions, which refused to continue under the existing conditions and forced the hand of company officials last year…

Can ANYBODY here tell us what gender the 16/7 Abusing Bully from Seattle is?
How many months has the Fauching Sociopath, Slewsie been on Topix Bullying other Posters?
But, nobody can tell if He/She?it is the Angry Black Woman that she "Presents" as, or if He/She/It is the Obese Pasty White Male that Collects Gay Porn?

Why does anybody reply to He/She?It with anything but derision?

She glum's onto anything she can see, which somebody posted about their personal life/experience to make a point, and Sociopath Slewsie uses that information which she distorts, to abuse the poster.

Only a Ride to the Light in the sky will cure He/She/It!
