It has not been saved. It is going into private mediation. Did you read the article? The fuckin Union is why they are in this mess in the first place

Which is why I always say that if the neo-cons had their way they would roll back our standard of living to that of Mexico in order to "compete". Why do you think the workers in the United States has to high of a standard of living? Why do you want to see their wages fall?

Simply put....If Hostess or any other company cannot pay a decent wage then they cannot afford to stay in business. By the way...(The CEO gave himself MILLIONS in bonuses).

Get your head out of your ass and learn the truth.

Who Killed Hostess Brands and Twinkies? - Forbes

Former Hostess Twinkies CEO tripled salary to $2.5m before bankruptcy

Why is it all these high paid union workers buy all this foreign crap instead of the higher priced "Made In America" products? Look at all the union workers shopping at wal-mart. Shouldn't they all be supporting American Made?

Hostess will be saved, but it won't be Obama and it certainly won't be the unions. They've got a brand name and that's worth a lot. Someone will buy it and take production to a right-to-work state. Believe me, others will follow.

From the offers, it looks like Hostess will be bought by a mexican company and production moved to mexico, just like Sara Lee.

Good. That's Schumpeter's creative destruction in motion. And it works out fine. Consumers will still get Twinkies and Wonder Bread. Grocers will still sell the stuff. Prudent companies will make money. And union pigs will get slaughtered. Win-win situation.

Yeah. Somehow the union built a TIME MACHINE and went back to January to cause the company to file bankruptcy.

Yes. The OP title IS a joke. Sorry you have no sense of humor, but its not surprising considering everything that comes out of the right's mouth is a joke that the right itself does not see the humor in.



Now please explain how the union built their TIME MACHINE. That's NOT a joke. For the union strike a couple of weeks ago to cause a bankruptcy filing last January does in fact require a TIME MACHINE and violation of CAUSALITY.

Your a fuckin joke. I do have a sense of humor. I'm sitting here spelling out stupidity with a stupid person aren't I? They had someone to come in and want to save the place, but the Union was hard-headed and fucked it up. Read the goddamn article.

Heresy to some, I'm sure, but unions are driving jobs out of states or out of the country altogether. The days of the privileged union workers are gone. Short of a dictatorial socialist takeover (which always fail in the long run anyway), there is no way to compete globally today with the yoke of strong and demanding unions over employers.

It's easy to tell when Oopie Poopie is unhinged. He has to yell in huge bold letters.

And to call attention to his stupidity and fundamental lack of understanding, he started a separate thread on this.

LOL

How has the union made Hostess uncompetitive if their product prices near the lowest in the industry?

Everything I have read says sales are down & pension fund was raided. None of this can be blamed on the union.

You only believe what you are told by the unions and the progressives, despite common sense. I'm not surprised.

I shop at their store. I know their prices are low. I did not read that from any source.

Prove any of it wrong.

The PBGC says they will have to cover the money missing from the pension fund. That means US tax payers have to pay corporate raiders.

You're friggen high.

You can't sell that BS. I've been keeping track of prices for 4 years. Used to be you could get an apple pie for 50 cents. Now the price is around $2.00. Their competitors are closer to $1.50.

Obama will get the Nobel Prize for economics for this.
He's going to be added to Mt.Rushmore.I saw a news article on this just today.
He will get credit for stopping the violence between Israel and Hamas.
So he gets another Nobel Peace Prize for that.
He will get a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC this year.
It has been announced he will dance in the next Dancing with the Stars.
And not to be considered a slacker he will be part of the main event at Wrestlemania this year in a
celebrity tag team match with Hulk Hogan...

Wow that's quite an event calender.

Not to worry folks Valerie Jarrett will be overseeing things at the WH...
