Labor Unions have officially killed off the Twinkie. The company that makes the yummy treat announced today they will start to downsize operations (a.k.a. fire people) as a result of a long battle with union workers.
Hostess Brands Inc., the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, said it had sought court permission to go out of business after failing to get wage and benefit cuts from thousands of its striking bakery workers.
Hostess said a national strike by members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union that began last week had crippled its ability to produce and deliver products at several facilities.
The liquidation of the company will mean that most of its 18,500 employees will lose their jobs, Hostess said on Friday. here
Obama, the Unions and our resident Food Nazi’s must be thrilled! Once again, proving the power they have over individual company’s and their owners. The lost of 18,000 jobs is simply the price we must pay for victory (Union thuggery) and the accomplishment of riding the nation of such lust for sweets! (the Obama’s may quote me).
Yes, there’s nothing that says love to a Liberal, like destroying another American company. And one which makes sugary treats and “white” bread must send tingles up the legs of Liberals. Tingles which can only be compared to Santa stuffing himself down their smoke free, electric, fuel compliment chimney’s with bags full of electronics and Chevy Volts.
We have abundant Food Stamps and 99 weeks of unemployment to offer, as these greedy, selfish individuals soak up the praise for their deeds.
I better not hear any whining and complaining from these ex-employed union people, or I might be forced to stuff cellophane wrappers down their gullets. . . . but I have heard that cellophane is quite filling.
