"Workers at Hostess Brands, maker of Twinkies , Ho Hos and Wonder Bread, have threatened to strike if the company imposes “unfair” contract terms, including wage cuts.

The Teamsters Union, representing about 7,500 of the company’s 19,000 employees, said that more than 90 percent of its Hostess members voted to authorize a strike if “unfair contract terms” are approved as part of its bankruptcy proceedings.

Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Jan. 11 and is continuing to operate during bankruptcy proceedings."

Hostess says it is closing three bakeries around the country as some of its workers go on strike.


It seems hard to believe that products many of us grew up with could go away. But that's exactly what Hostess says will happen, sooner rather than later, unless its bakers go back to work.

In the Chicago area, some Hostess workers who remain on the job say they support their colleagues across the country.

Hostess has three plants in Illinois. Only the Peoria facility is officially on strike.

Could this be the end of the Twinkie and the Ho-Ho?

"I'm pretty sure they'll go under," said Hostess baker Melvin Davis. "If people don't go back to work, they'll go under."

I knew the end was coming. I knew it.

When fat people can longer get twinkies, well it's not a world I wanna live in.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

I don't buy it. Hostess makes a lot of money, their costs haven't changed much in years and they have a killer distribution network.

Somehow they got into trouble, but there have to be a lot of places for them to cut back before they take hard working people, ones needed to keep things running, and shaft them with wage cuts.

Not that something like that might not be needed, but if the people at the top aren't taking the heaviest cuts, then this is all B.S.

If you can't keep your business up and pay your people, you don't deserve large amounts of money.

I always hated twinkies. people could never survive on them after a nuclear war anyway, they would be irradiated if they really did exist. I dont believe this in any way causes any more serious doom than anything else going on.

theres plenty of more serious DOOM out there for people who want it

The good thing is there are still some twinkie pans for sale on various online websites and even in some nicer home and garden retail stores.

Recipes, including vegan versions can be found online and in some cookbooks and on copycat recipe website. If you have patience to bake them it is doom off.

On top of that, there has been a war against obeseity.

And everything Hostess makes is bad for you so their thin profit margins are non existant now.

Personally I still buy the cinnamon streusel cakes and ding dongs but I excersise and I eat them in moderation.



Oh well. The union will fight for money that isn't there and eventually they will bankrupt and liquidate. They would rather make x amount of dollars or none at all.

Gotta love union mentality.

If there is no company, there is no union and problem of pay will be over.

That union will show them!! They will win!!

Yeah she comes on here talking this big shit like she's someone special then she disappears and hides like a scared bitch then she some back with this stupid shit. Seems if the world really was going to come to an end on Dec. 21 she'd be up here everyday trying to get the info out instead of playing these stupid games, and she has the nerve to call the people here biatches. Best you GTFO and Stay TFO and don't come back.



I hear you are singing a song of the past
I see no tears
I know that you know it may be the last
For many years
You'd gamble or give anything
To be in with the better half
But how many friends must I have
To begin with to make you laugh

Will you still have a song to sing
When the razor boy comes
And take your fancy things away
Will you still be singing it
On that cold and windy day

You know that the coming is so close at hand
You feel all right
I guess only women in cages can stand
This kind of night
I guess only women in cages
Can play down
The things they lose
You think no tomorrow will come
When you lay down
You can't refuse
