DOOM ON!!! HOSTESS TO CLOSE (announce tomorrow morning!)

Striking workers defy Hostess' demands

The maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread is expected to announce Friday whether it will follow through on a threat to liquidate.

Members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union Workers went on strike last week at Hostess Brands plants around the country. Production at about a dozen of Hostess' 33 plants has been seriously affected. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January.

A shutdown would result in the loss of about 18,000 jobs

Loss of 18000 jobs.

Can't say I am happy about it exactly -- but its what the union bosses deserve.

Wonder how many of the workers will actually realize that it was the UNION that doomed them to bread lines and soup kitchens?

Because the unions talked them into not backing down... because they insisted that the company was holding back ....

The workers demanded $25-$35 an hour (twinkie inspectors checking the 'cream' level of the twinkies... $35 an hour for THAT?), better health and full retirement. The company said they couldn't afford it and the union convinced them to strike.
