    I'm going to "like this" on facebook.
    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson

    We should buy up all the twinkies out there, food storage you know.

    I'm also thinking Steak and Unions are sounding real good right now.
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.

    Yeah, I'm sure it's all the unions' fault that hostess makes some of the most unhealthy food you can get.

    I'm sure the execs who made the decision to not sell anything healthy, even when America was clearly moving towards healthier eating, took the same cuts they are asking the bakers to take, right?

    I don't know the specifics behind this strike. I do know that all of the things hostess is famous for, are things I wouldn't let my kids eat all the time. And that is certainly not something that can be blamed on the bakers union.
    I hear the Energy Drink industry is really hurting now too. They're not hurting because they're unhealthy, they're hurting because they're not good.

    When all else fails, blame a union.

    Hostess should have adjusted to the market. Twinkies and cupcakes just aren't as popular as they once were. Just look at Krispy Kreme. When I was in HS, everyone ate'em. But now that craze is over. Today? I don't know of anyone who eats Krispy Kreme.

    Yeah, maybe hostess should have stated putting addictive drugs like caffeine in their food. They'd probably still be in business, lol.

    Exactly. Energy Drinks figured this out long ago. If your product tastes like a**, just load it with addictive substances and you'll be good. Heck, that's how Homer made a killing selling tomatoes.

    Exactly.

    I don't know a whole lot about this hostess thing, but from what I've seen the company wanted the employees to forfeit a substantial portion of their pensions, while simultaneously taking pay cuts and cuts in health care.

    The union supposedly agreed to everything except forfeiting their pensions. They didn't want to give up their future, for a company that didn't really have a future.

    Hostess chose to make unhealthy foods, and market them to kids in the hopes that the kids could convince the parents to buy them.

    What they should have done was also offered a healthy line, marketed to parents, and the parents would convince the kids to eat them.

    Since the union members refused to forfeit their pensions, look for a lot of those guys to cash out and start their own bakeries. Maybe they'll even band together and start a huge national company.

    We might be surprised to see who ends up bidding for some of the liquidated hostess assets.
