    [The Teamsters decided that if they didn't get what they wanted from Hostess, they'd kill the company. Grabbing the big bucks was well worth the risk of having no job at all. You can rest assured the likewise morons at GM and Chrysler will think the same way, for after all didn't they rape and sodomize the company they originally worked for until the death rattle was heard night and day throughout its plants, offices, and dealerships until the Union friendly Democrat, Barack Obama, came in and said I'll rape and sodomize the taxpayers instead so you can still keep your jobs in return for your votes. Obama did it once, the Union knows its guaranteed he'll do it again. The sky's the limit on their wages only because they have the taxpayer at their mercy to subsidize them until they reach infinity. GM's new plan for its business success also includes selling a vehicle for $40,000 that costs GM $89,000 to produce. What a plan. The miraculous fruits of affirmative action at work at GM
    Richard Trumka says he's going to send his union goons door to door to convince American businessmen to see the light regarding Obamanomics.]

    "Back in September, following acceptance by the Teamsters. the bakers’ union (BCTGM) at bankrupt Hostess brands—makers of the iconic Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder brand breads—rejected a company proposal to help keep the company in business. By a voice vote of its members, the union opened the door to conduct a company-killing strike and potentially putting 18,500 Hostess workers onto the streets.

    Well, on Friday, the bakers’ union called its members on strike nationwide. Now the job cuts begin.

    On Monday, Hostess permanently closed three of its plants, thanks to the union’s strike:

    Hostess Brands permanently closed three bakeries Monday, including a plant in St. Louis where 365 jobs were cut, in response to a bakers’ union strike that started Friday.

    The bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder bread said it’s trying to avert liquidating the entire company, and it shuttered three plants that were no longer able to produce and deliver products because of picket lines. The other plant closures are in Seattle and Cincinnati, where a combined 262 jobs were cut."

    Maybe we can start buying Twinkies from China.

    Thanks for collapsing another great American institution, Union filth.

    Although I hate seeing American jobs lost, for whatever reason, Twinkies are poisonous and should never be consumed by anybody.

    Wanna' ruin yer health? Just keep eating all that Hostess garbage.

    If obama hadn't paid off the unions, they would have killed GM too.

    Hostess can move out of the country. They have worldwide distribution now. Just liquidate here and expand to a more hospitable place.

    Sort of like what Jeep and GM are doing - but on the taxpayer dime.
