    Neither one was willing to adjust.

    A—I loved Twinkies as a kid. Now when I think of eating one, I get nauseous.

    Twinkies are a luxury. The failing corrupted monetary system destroyed both Hostess and the Union ultimately. But the arguments over who was to blame were fun. It is easy to get them to turn on one another. It is natural to them.

    If the union members think the company can make money, then why doesn’t the union reps buy the recipe and keep making them?
    Socialism only works as long as there is someone else to rob.

    As a corporation, Hostess was obviously in death throes. Concessions, in this case would be similar to pumping air into a tire with no sidewall.

    To nearly quote something I heard recently, “Unions are people too.”

    Debt. The vulture capitalists took a profit making company, loaded it with debt, and the market could no longer sustain the margins. Like Mitt wanted to do to America.

    The corporate thieves at the top destroyed the company.
    The union wouldn’t bend to mgmts regressive demands.

    “The private-equity owners had loaded the company down with debt, the CEO had tripled his pay, the union had previously taken a big, big pay cut…” http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/12928-hostess-failure-not-unions-fault

    Because it’s not as if a market economy needs a middle class, after all.
    Oh, wait…

    Maybe Michelle hates cupcakes.

    @tigger,
    hostess is not necessary to national security. Heavy manufacturing, ie, the auto industry, is essential for national security. We need it to build our weapons of war – if we have another shooting war.

    without our heavy manufacturing, who you gonna buy weapons from for the next big war? China? Korea? Japan? makes no sense.

    Actually it’s Corporations that were declared people (with all the rights but not the responsibilities) I’ve yet to see that right being passed to a union anywhere.

    It was the 300% pay increases the CEO’s decided to give themselves.
    they also cut their employees retirement by 75%.
