The deal Hostess gave us does suck but all of you that are striking do you know what the job market is like out there. You will not find anything close to what you have even with the cuts. Wake up people and get back to work!!!!!!!!!!

HAhaha you union bozos will find that you have no skills and WalMart wont even hire you
Of course your leader, the back guy at the big house, will see to it you get welfare. Just think you will be living on the largess of his plantation just like the trash that you are. Whats really going to be fun to watch is the effect this will have on your children as they enter a new phase in their lives of becoming multigenrational welfare trash

These morons will be taking a big finacial hit when they lose their jobs.
Maybe their wives can get jobs as strippers for the Mexcians that replace them

This is all a scam,they're gonna close anyway.I know from personal experience.I worked at Arvin 17th St,the one Patrick James screwed over.They told us the same thing.The company is not doing well,employees need to agree to wage concessions to stay open,month later everyone lost their jobs.
Same thing happened to UTI in Edinburgh.Take a reduction or close,closed anyway.Executives don't care about people,they care about millions they'll never be able to spend in their lifetime.

This does not surprise me in the least. Unions do not really care about the worker. I was part of the teamsters, their mentality is to screw the employer out of everything thinking deep pockets never end. Good for Hostess. Let the unions feed those now unemployed. Let them make their point on an empty stomach. I hope they starve, the greedy Morons. Life is tough, it's tougher when your stupid!
