Twinkies and Ding Dongs ....

No,we are  not referring to Biden and other members of the Obama Administration,


 we mean the the baked goods produced by Hostess!


Despite the companies financial troubles, the unions representing the bakery workers decided it was better to strike and put the company out of business than to accept a smaller wage and benefit package. So now, 18,500 MORE workers will join the ranks of the unemployed!

Santa Claus is dead! Hostess, unlike the US Government, can't just print money. When they pay out more than they take in, they go out of business. When you CAN print money, you can delay that day for a while....but not forever.

The MSM is doing 'man on the street' interviews in New York. Everyone said Hostess is going bankrupt because people are too fat. SHEEPLE!

If people are to fat because they eat Hostess products, would it not be logical to assume Hostess was selling a lot of them? How would successful sales drive you bankrupt?

Unions are another storey.

Throw in a Papa John's Pizza for the veggies.

I have to congratulate Hostess for for not asking for a bail-out to support the looters as did GM and the now foreign owned Chrysler. Trumka, the head looter, is so angry his metro-sexual waxed eyebrows are almost touching. He is sweating in his $1000 tailored suit as he is chauffeured around from looting to looting. He even blames it on the past Romney administration.

Blogger and New Guy, I do not know if the troll broke the letter of the rules or not, but he certainly broke the spirit with his last post concerning Sark. It needs to be removed.

Nor do we want to so do not be jealous.

Well, I missed it. I can only guess that I must have hit a nerve in Anonymouse. Thank you Guy Faulkes for looking out for the blog.

NewGuy, I used to have a can of BS Repellant. It must have been made by the same company. :-)

Thank you for taking out the trash.

The unions are a menace to all employees at unionized companies. A local fellow here in Watauga County, Dockery Termire, told me that after WWII he went to Cleveland to work in the auto plants. He said many times he would see auto workers playing poker in the backroom on company time. When he too was put on a ghost shift, he refused to be paid for idle time. They (the union) told him he would either take the idle time or not have a job. Dockery returned to Watauga County within a couple years and opened a garage. He said his time in the auto plants was not a pleasant experience.

Yet we have a majority of liberal sheep who believe, somehow, unions are a good thing. I never understood this thought process. Then again, I never thought I fair county would be overrun with outsiders intent on turning Watauga County into the very cesspool they came from!!! They have done a great job thus far! LOL

Executives at Hostess hoped for a quick bankruptcy and liquidation of assets in order to collect their bonuses. Bypassing mediation was pivotal for the bankruptcy judge to deny Hostess their original filing. Sounds like a Bain Capital move to me. Coincidentaly, CEO Greg Rayburn is touted as a "turnaround expert".

Wolf's Head said...

WOW, how about that!

I'm sure that this class warfare drivel will mean lots to the union idiots who decided it was better to force Hostess to file for bankruptcy than to have jobs.

They're families will be so proud!

It is important to remember that labor contracts are negotiated between labor and management. Management and labor agree to the terms.

guy faulkes said...

"Management and labor agree to the terms."

Not always. The norm appears to be that many times labor asks for more than the job is worth, causing the jobs to go to another state or country or the jobs to be lost when the company is disbanded, either before or after declaring bankruptcy. In either case, the union labor screwed itself.

The question is if these people that in effect quit can apply for unemployment benefits from the government.

Strikes, sick-outs, picket lines, sabotage...

The results are now taking affect. Lock'em out!

Imagine that, a known Socialist's OPINION is socialist.

sinister spinster said:

No, wrong again. Collective bargaining agreements are not really agreements but binding rules upheld by collective bargaining laws enacted by New Deal Congressmen. These collective bargaining laws choke business and give company leaders very little leeway to actually lead their company. The "agreement" spinster refers to is therefore not really an agreement but a set of "kangaroo" rules forced upon a private business by the government.

Most socialists know very little of labor laws and unions, yet support them nonetheless. Then again, most socialist sheep are neither company owners nor leaders in those companies. Dolts like sinster minster are intent on sucking off others taxpayer money rather than contributing.
