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%.

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

But yeah, it was all the unions fault.

Well, it was the excess of their executives. They finally decided to throw the company in the shitter when their hedge fund backers decided to quit funneling them cash.

But don't mention bankers too loudly lest we attract the attention of Sam....

Do not worry people, as news like these are just designed to rile up ignorant racist freaks like the OP

There will be plenty of these things produced, and rest assured: even the generation after you will be subject to these cancerous sugary "treats" which shouldn't even be fed to animals let alone humans

He is probably thinking it was him - because no other person mentioned Obama. But go ahead and continue being a dumbass I'm really starting to grow some pity for a class as low of an IQ as yours. I guess thats why we have grown accustomed to leaving tips these days

Go ahead - name other factors. I never once said that the company didn't have other problems. Fact remains, a union of retards who bake shit is what pushed it over the edge into making 18k people unemployed. If you try to deny that, than you're more retarded than I thought.

OF course it's Obama's fault, he's a dirty libtard and a negro and is to blame for unions, and the fact you're a failure in all aspects of life

if 5,000 of your workers out of 18,000 going on strike is enough to cause you to go BANKRUPT your company was already fucked. a strike shouldn't cause bankruptcy that quickly.

They were on the brink of it - public information shows that. So when you strike and you push the company over the edge, how can you blame them for your job loss if you were the final straw?

Take a look at any small business - or anything that is suffering in a recession. They tend to not have liquid assets sitting around like healthy corporations do.

Are you saying that it's hostess' fault that they were suffering alongside Michelle Obama's initiative to parent every child? And that it's their fault that baker factory workers decided to strike in one of the worst economic times since the great depression?
