Didn't Hostess close down Thursday because of this? Last I knew, there were possibly some companies interested in buying up the remains...

Maybe I'm wrong - wouldn't be the first time.

The judge is forcing them to talk because it's crazy that they're going to shit down the entire company over a labor disbute. Blame who you want, everyone loses in that senerio.

I heard this and think it is wrong. Can a judge order them to talk out a deal? WTH. The company wants to shut down, let them. I truly can't believe that Obama is involved in this. Does Michelle know? Hasn't the 1st lady declared a war on junk food? If Obama is involved in this, she's gonna kick his @ss.

ANY national or international corporation should pay a living wage w/benefits including healthcare. This keeps them off the taxpayer and supports the entire economy since Americans buy from all of us. If you want everyone to be making the minimum wage then go live in a cardboard box in Mexico!

Re: If Hostess agrees to terms with the unions I will boycott their product forever.
Amazing how people are so quick to come to the defense of the administration of this business. Especially after it's been mismanaged for years and in and out of bankruptcy multiple times in the last decade..

Yet it's the unions that caused this mess? Fucking idiotic bootlickers, wake the hell up.

The US is allowing corporations to make slaves out of us all through legislation written in their favor and lowering wages to near poverty is one of the first steps. Some of you idiots not only welcome it, you actually are asking for it by backing the suits and stomping your fellow laborers.

After the company moves to mexico the low wage American wont be able to afford their product proving the fallacy of their math. The American wont be able to afford the house pmt and the economy will continue to slide negative.

The new workers w/no healthcare benefits will be supported by American taxes.

You sir are a communist and a purveyor of economic misery. Every sort of government intervention and price control results in disaster, economic doom and as a byproduct reduced government coffers.

The only thing government should be doing is to do what Teddy Roosevelt did, bust the trusts and break up all monopolies. Instead government reinforces the monopolies, their real clients.

Hey idiot, get with it. Hostess International Bakeries is gone....done...history...over...kaput.

Their trademark, routes, and recipies will be sold in bankruptcy court. I think there are 4 offers already.

If a non-union bakery in the USA or an overseas company buys the rights to market the products, the new products will be much cheaper and likely have better ingredients.
