Holy cow! Here is a prime example of the power of the union and this president over Corporate America. Our economy is toast.

"BIDDEFORD, Maine —
Hostess Brands announced on Wednesday that it will file a motion with a bankruptcy court to liquidate the entire company if striking employees don't return to work by Thursday at 5 p.m.

The Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union has been on strike since last Friday."

Closing a company that's infested with union scum isn't a bad idea.

The only thing that's worth anything is their name brand and maybe some recipes....they will sell those to a more efficient company that isn't infested with union nazis.

The product price will go down too.

When the Nazis came for the communists,

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,

When they came for me,

Hostess is a company that recycles industrial waste and sells it to the ignorant masses as "food product". Instead of expensive toxic waste disposal and clean-up it actually gets to turn a huge profit. Good riddance.

Its not that the workers will not take a pay

"The liquidation would result in Hostess' nearly 18,000 workers losing their jobs. The bakers' union represents around 5,000".

So the union types make up less than 1/3 of those who'll lose their jobs if the company folds. (But I don't think that will happen. I think some eleventh hour deal will be reached, much like the way the government 'miraculously' avoids shutdowns.)

Shut the company down, reopen under another name.
Rehire people who really want to work.
They will surely know who the union thugs are,

Hostess Brands is a lot more than Twinkies. It will be a shame to see them go, and a bigger shame to see 18,500 more workers on unemployment. I hope that every union member watches this and remembers that the same thing could happen to them. The unions have become one of the largest drains on the economy, and the Marxist in Chief will probably give millions of tax dollars to the unions to "fix" the problem before a penny of unemployment is spent. Maybe the union members could go to Barry's house for Thankgiving.
