    The company should shut down, fire all those worthless employees, and start back up fresh. F-unions

    They want to take away 28% of their pay package (benefits too).

    If you made $1 a day and had decent insurance and your boss said you'd be making 75 cent a day and they were taking away your drug and dental insurance (fake numbers of course) you'd be pissed too.

    Not if the alternative of ZERO was the only other choice.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Then they should find other employment if they have a better option.

    If not, the company is doing them a favor because that package is still the best option they have.

    Now they get nothing.

    Genius!

    There were days when this was a better offer than the choices I faced.

    LOL@ Axl.

    I've had one Twinkie my entire life. Bleech.

    I used to dig the Cupcakes (chocolate, please!) as a kid - only b/c of the slab'o'frosting-like-substance.

    I think I was a dingdong addict in elementary school. (Now THAT'S sig-line material. LOL) Otherwise, I just don't go out of my way for prepackaged sweets. Even those breakfast ones. Crumb cakes or whatever. I had one a few years ago. What a disappointment.

    Gimme a hand-made DONUT! If I'm gonna die in a diabetic coma, it's going to be with GOOD food.

    And just when Washington and Colorado legalize marijuana, Hostess is about to go belly up. I predict some uprising. Perhaps very slow uprising.

    The last time I tried to buy a ho ho was in the mid west bible belt on a Sunday. I walked into this little country store. Some holly roller was playing on the TV talking about the sin of fornication & dam nation. The little old lady wearing a big gold cross running the store was glued to the TV.

    Well after walking around the store for a while the little old lady noticed me. I was looking for a snack, but I really wasn't hungry hungry. So I figured I didn't need a ho ho, I only needed one. So I walked up to the little old lady holding the bible and ask her where I could find a ho.

    All of a sudden this little old lady starts beating on me with the bible, yelling FORNICATOR at me.


    I never did get that ho.:whistling:

    Peyton Manning will swoop in and buy Hostess like he did those 21 Papa John's franchises in Denver 2 weeks before weed got legal.

    The Texas based corporation told the union morons not to strike. Unions have outlived their need.

    I've been unemployed for 10 months now. Just a couple of thoughts:

    1) I would gladly have taken an 8% cut in salary in lieu of getting laid off.

    2) Many companies in the private sector have found it necessary to cut benefits in order to survive... many more will soon follow as the requirements under Obamacare kick in.

    Look, if the union wants to draw a line and take a stand that's their right. If it causes their members to take a 100% cut in pay and benefits... well, so be it. Welcome to making your bed and then having to sleep in it. I just feel sorry for the non-union employees of the company who will also lose their jobs. This isn't their fault...

    But no worries... government dependence is the new normal... haven't you heard?

    Chrysler Corp. a UAW employer, has 2 plants in Mexico. They pay $.80/hr. no benifits other than 2 meals a day.

    My only point to this post is to wonder are you folks really so stupid to think that they wouldn't do the same to you if they could.

    The local scuttlebutt is that many of the lower paid Union members don't care if the company shuts down. They will receive lots of Unemployment and other benefits from the Government.
