  • Twinkie alert!!!!!

    “We expect to be making and selling in July,” Michael Cramer, executive vice president of Hostess Brands told NBC News on Thursday. “Probably the later half of the month before the product hits the stores.”

    Note: The new "shops" will be non-union. Go figure.

    Here is to hoping they will be half the price that they were selling at, and have a human finger in one of them on occasion.
    That least THEN the price will be on par with the quality!

      Whats that suppose to mean? I bet they sell at or below past prices and will taste no different than their predecessors, with no fingers.

          Since you brought it up, wasn't it the Union guys who wouldn't take a pay cut to keep them open? IIRC it was no pay cut = no job!!!

              Management tried to spin it that way, but Union folks already took more than one cut to pay and benefits while management received raises! When does it reach the point that you are no longer working for profit against your bills? How many pay and benefits would you take until work was a nonprofit or money losing venture? Remember management received some very heafty exit payments.

                I'm not sure, but I think it will be a good lesson to the US population when we the "taxed class" get sick of our wages "stolen" and finally "shrug". Its about the same analogy if you think about it. Funny thing is, the party that supports the labor unions with one hand is the same party with their other hand in their back pocket taking hard earned money in the same way they demonize the business owners.... amazing hypocrisy!

                  union or not, management (usually) takes the benefits while the peons take the screwings
