Great point! The companies that provide boxes, trucking, marketing & advertising, maintenance, etc.

I wonder if this might take away the joy that the union won!!! (/sarcasm)

Hey fellow union workers...let's torpedo the boat we are on to get back at those guys that own this, on the other side of the ship!!


When we are all treading water we can pump our fists into the air and talk about how we stuck it to the man.


WOO HOO!! We won.....


few hours later....

hrmm I wonder if somebody is going to come along to rescue us? Where is the Union? Where are the lifeboats?


I'm getting tired of floating .......


Well the union is treading water over there....

And they sank the lifeboats with the ship because they didn't want management to escape and float away while we were all in the water.

Oh, so we are all in the water together? Woo HOO we are all equal....

few hours later.


I really can't tread water any longer...

I don't want to die...can we get another boat?


hello??

anybody alive?


oh crap...I'm going to die...

I can't believe union fucktards can't understand this...we'll probably hear that Hostess is racist, and that they want people to suffer. Hostess will be sued, and BO will say "Hostess, we're requiring to open your doors again. Here is a $1M note, open your doors and hire 100% union...you have no choice, you're too big to fail."

Hostess is 100% sure they will liquidate?

Yes sorry with that link it just came out this is new link

The baking giant Hostess says it is going out of business.

The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread made the announcement Friday morning after setting a deadline for 5 p.m. Thursday for striking workers to return to work.

If employees refused, Hostess said it would start liquidating the company.

I have no sympathy for these people. Idiot Union members standing around outside with signs, holding an already struggling company hostage. Now they can start standing in the unemployment line.

Just look at how the unions treated the additional help from other states with Sandy. They felt the outside workers would steal their Overtime, with no regard to how long people might be out of power.

They don't care about anyone but themselves.

I hope I am wrong, but this just may be the start of the domino effect for businesses. With additional taxes, unions and Obamacare, more companies will find it financially impossible to continue. More company layoffs and closures.

And these unemployed sheep will continue to vote for morons like Obama, and whine for their fair share from their daddy the government.

Do you know how much the CEO of Hostess earns?

Driscoll was the previous CEO before new CEO Gregory Rayburn.

"In early February, Hostess had asked the bankruptcy judge to approve a sweet new employment deal for Driscoll. Its terms guaranteed him a base annual salary of $1.5 million, plus cash incentives and "long-term incentive" compensation of up to $2 million. If Hostess liquidated or Driscoll were fired without cause, he'd still get severance pay of $1.95 million as long as he honored a noncompete agreement."
