I WANT MY FUCKING TWINKIES!!!

Welp - now you have done it libtards. You have taken everything that is good and life - and killed it. Hostess - the company behind Twinkies and Ding Dongs, is now going under thanks to their union of 18k employee's.

At least I can enjoy those sweet juicy tears of over 18,000 retards who think "DUR HUR WE WILL JUST FORM A GROUP AND ASK FOR MONEY OR ELSE LOL!!"

Actually, it was years of declining sales, increasing costs and mismanagement. The unions do not simply demand pay and benefits and get it, the managers of the company look over their financials and agree to the contracts as well. Why are they blameless?

The union that went on strike only represented 5000 workers, not the entire 18k-19k employees. Other unions who worked for the company were willing to take steep concessions.

This is not the first time they have filed for bankruptcy. Last time they blamed the low carb trend. And the unions all took concessions last time around. This time around one of the unions wasn't willing to play ball. Probably because they were already owed a billion dollars.

At the same time they were trying to make the unions take massive cuts, they were floating the CEOs pay raises of between 80% and 300%.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...961572458.html
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-1...er-strike.html

92% of the union that went on strike rejected the proposed concessions in a union vote.

Over the past eight years since the first Hostess bankruptcy, BCTGM members have watched as money from previous concessions that was supposed to go towards capital investment, product development, plant improvement and new equipment, was squandered in executive bonuses, payouts to Wall Street investors and payments to high-priced attorneys and consultants.

BCTGM members are well aware that as the company was preparing to file for bankruptcy earlier this year, the then CEO of Hostess was awarded a 300 percent raise (from approximately $750,000 to $2,550,000) and at least nine other top executives of the company received massive pay raises. One such executive received a pay increase from $500,000 to $900,000 and another received one taking his salary from $375,000 to $656,256.

Over the past 15 months, Hostess workers have seen the company unilaterally end contractually-obligated payments to their pension plan. Despite saving more than $160 million with this action, the company continues to fall deeper and deeper into debt. A mountain of debt and gross mismanagement by a string of failed CEO's with no true experience in the wholesale baking business have left this company unable to compete or survive.


But yeah, it was all the unions fault.

Your article was very biased, and it's obvious you're just a lieberal.

The Recession could technically be Reagan's fault by deregulating the banking industry.

I can understand the error, I'm sure you were kind of busy taking it up the ass from your gay navy buddies (or whatever the fuck you call that gang of homeless people who you pay to molest you)
