    Why not? The Twinkies have a longer shelf life…

    Better than municipal bonds in cities ran by Democrats.

    Hmm, about their “union busting” tactic, and the fact somebody will probably take over the product line. Gee, is Bain Capital in the background? Amazing how a product line that’s always moved off the shelves has a problem making money. Yep, that’s the Bain model all right.

    There comes a point where workers shouldn’t have to absorb a 30% pay cut and lose your medical just because management can’t run a company. Any bets as to which direction the management’s salaries and benefits have been going? There’s a reason that 90% of the benefits of Obama’s recovery have gone to the top 1%. It’s called putting greed ahead of the health of the company. The nice thing about liquidation and selling off the brand names is that the union workers who built the product get zero percent of the profits, it’ll all go to management.

    trout up to his usual defending the devil posts.

    1.Hostess sales were down because of the sugar content of their products….if a buyer comes up with less sugar items that taste as good, and goes Union-less, a “new” biz could succeed with higher sales volume. (more and more Americans are being diagnosed with diabetes….I am one and we need more products (like Dairy Queen ice cream) that we can safely eat)
    -
    2.the Union had rules that pushed Hostess’ cost of doing business up, up, up….like requiring 2 people to do the job of l, like the “driver” couldn’t carry in the product to fill shelves, and a truck could not carry bread and Twinkies at the same time.
    then there were wages and perks and pensions….
    -
    3.Unions did in American steel makers and state pensions for teachers, police an firemen…..Illinois is case in point.

    Every Time the Union Brass tells their Members the Company is Bluffing when they say they will move Production to another locaation or shut down the Company if the Union Members do not get back to work, The Union Brass cost their Union Members their Jobs, for the fact is the Union Members do not report to work by set deadline, and the Company moves Production (Peterbilt in Madison Tennessee) and (Hostess moved rfrom Chaprer 11 to Liquidation)

    @ARodney

    Because the Union refuses to meet in the middle.

    You statement about Obama is proof Obama cares more about the 1% than the rest of us.

    Hey, the board of directors at Hostess only gave themselves a 75-200% raise earlier this year! They must have been doing great!

    Yes, and it is run by a Democrat who was a big donor to Obama, and the party. And most of the others groups involved had dem ties to players like Gephart and the likes of the teamsters union.

    Actually management get diddly and squat in a backrupcy liquidation. Securied creditors get paid first, unless the Obama administraion gets involved. So it’s bond holders then banks with loans then shareholders.

    @Mr. King

    Only because of the proxmitiry ot DC and it allied businesses. Besides if they were that safe they would be paying less since you can get Fed bonds for less.
