so you think every Union member is a DemoLib?
I know plenty of Union members who are RepubliCONs or Independent.

The Hostess company has had financial issues way before this strike. They had a bankruptcy back in 2004 also and had to restructure and move headquarters. Who was in charge in '04? not Obama.
They've had too many top executives making ridiculous salary and compensation.

Dont worry, some other bakery chain will buy the Twinkie and Wonder Bread brand name and recipe and continue to make them. Probably Nabisco and other regional snack companies.

$16.74/hr average wage rate. Plus nearly $1 billion owed to pensions. Both are now equal to zero.

This is what unions have done to America. These idiots had a job and killed the company. Just an 8% pay decrease. They walked out. No they have no job. This is why American companies are moving out of America. No they can collect unemployment for closing the company down. These are the same idiots that voted for Obama.

B/S. stop the "blame the President" for everything. Unions were around long before the POTUS, Obama became White House material.
Unions are part of the American way of life like Apple Pie.
Corporate America is now hurting from their own regulations.

I read where one was making 11.40 and another was making 17.00 dollars an hour. I wonder what the managment was making.

The president appoints the Labor Secretary, who now just happens to be very pro-union and supportive of their actions. She was appointed by Obama.

Wonder Bread is still being produced in Canada and Mexico. I hardly eat white bread anymore, I prefer Rye, Pumpernickel, Whole Wheat and Sour Dough.
They didnt have to close down. Mgmt did it cuz they are greedy. They could've hired contractors to make bread and twinkies.

Although I hate to see jobs lost and businesses close, Hostess has got to be the manufacturer of some of the most unhealthiest 'foods' known. There are much better snack choices.
C'mon a shelf life life of 6 months has to take an incredible amount of preservatives to do.
If they baked real food that was actually good for you to eat, then it would be a loss.
Do you know that it is easier and cheaper to buy candy than fruit in our schools?
Let's eat smart America.
