Another GREAT AMERICAN COMPANY raped by poor management. They have no real sales experience. They ride a desk and have a vision. Get rich and get out. I am so sorry for my brothers who are stuck working and now worrying about their jobs. This sucks!

Having worked for this company and retired after 30 years I feel for those still there. It was a great company when I retired (1999) and went quickly down hill shortly thereafter. I worked in the bread division and when the company changed it's shelf life on the product, from a couple of days to seven days, the bottom fell out. They always want to blame the Union and the Pension Fund but in reality, management should take responsibility for the downfall of this once great peace of American free enterprise.....

How can you even dare to claim Pension Fund and Union wages, they haven't paid into the pension fund since last June, and we all basically took wage cuts 2 years ago when they came out last time around, no one that I know of has had a raise and in fact hourly workers have had their hours cut, most by 1/2 (of the people I know anyway)... So if that was their REAL problem then they shouldn't have to file again, correct???!!!!! Damn I'm mad. TELL THE TRUTH, or maybe workers should tell it for them since they don't know what the word "truth" means. I agree with another poster... time for this company to be a worker owned, we know what to do to make it work if let us, you stupid, stupid money hungry $%^&&*(*%$##
(by the way shall I mention that within a month of them coming out of bankruptcy last time workers were appalled that they continued on their same tactics that got them in hot water in the first place, we were betting a year and they would be back in trouble, but I guess a year wasn't time enough to funnel your bonuses and gross salaries into your overseas accounts)

You figure after all the free product placement in "Zombieland" Twinkie futures would have outpaced crude.
