They can buy the plants & the machinery. They can move the machinery and sell the land/buildings. Take a loss on those parts of the assets and refuse to hire any union members.
The unions should not gain one single thing over this strike.
Besides—who would want this group of malcontents working under their roof??? I sure would not.
Nevada, Tennessee, Texas, & S Dakota all have NO INCOME taxes.
I order Mexican coca-cola from Amazon.com. It is made with sugar cane instead of corn syrup and you can really tell the difference.
It would be kind of fun to see a rash of Baker’s Unions members being lynched by those in the other unions that were willing to make concessions to keep their jobs. It’s not like union members haven’t been trained for that kind of mischief.
It’s not just unionized workers. The US has sugar tariffs to protect Florida farmers which makes our sugar double the international price. This means, even with US workers, Mexico could make twinkies cheaper than in America.
Good luck getting your job back!... If Grupo Bimbo were to take over, the company could potentially take food production to Mexico and take advantage of lower priced sugars and raw materials costs.
Unfortunately, even if Grupo Bimbo were to keep Hostess alive, the operational shift to Mexico will mean that the majority of the 18,500 Hostess employees will not get their job back.
Why would they want to go back to work when they have Obama and the union looking out for them?
After spending a weekend enjoying a break from all the pressure that had them relived to lose their jobs, former workers are hopeful someone will swoop in and save their jobs. Guess they finally figured out that the satellite dish and the roof it was attached to were soon to be gone. No more BET, CNN, MSLSD, plumbing, electric, Twinkies.
Hate to break it to the morons, but anyone could find enough $9.00 employees to make a stinking twinkie, and be grateful.
Hey, union employees, how's Obama's hopium working out for you, huh? Hope you had a real fun high while it lasted.
I’m saddened that MO is among the Forced Union (FU, fitting don’t you think?) states. Every time I see one of those ‘Right to Work is a Rip Off’ bumper stickers it makes me want to shoot out some tires to see what happens.
So I guess the over $700 million in loans Hostess is burdened with had nothing to do with the shutdown . . . or the 80% raises for management?
yup, iam sure there’s a long list of folks somewhere in imagination land lining up and thinking “why i just can’t wait to buy hostess and employ all the people who shut it down.”
libtard wet dreams. all their schemes still require someone else’s money to save them.
or you can buy twinkies from any number of other vendors like little debbie for example.
The union workers had a chance to not only save their jobs, but save the Hostess company as well! Instead the union workers and the greedy union thugs chose to kill their own jobs and the company to boot! How in heavens name they could chose to do this to themselves and to their families in this totally failed and failing economy is beyond all reason and comprehension.
After their unemployment benefits all run out, the banks foreclose on their homes and these union workers lose everything, I hope they and their families enjoy living on the street, in their cars and in homeless shelters because they have no one to blame for the mess they are in but THEMSELVES. As for the union leadership THUG bosses who motivated them to take this delusional course of self destruction... they will still "land on their feet" and will as Hans Gruber so aptly put it; "We will be sitting on a beach, earning 20%."
Lord willing, other union workers will finally wake up, learn the "Hostess lesson" and realize that their union overlord, thug bosses do not care about them or the companies that employ them and pay their salary, but only care about themselves, their wealth and their power.
And more to the point, the same union workers that drove the previous owners into bankruptcy.
Screw ‘em. They had a chance at employment and blew it.
Hire some kids out out of cooking schools.
Im into Little Debbie myself.
Now I see why Hostess cakes were so expensive...unions
That was tried several times in the past. Most of the time, it failed.
I believe the first one was the lathe plant, South Bend. They bought themselves out of bankruptcy, installed their own “management”, and after a few years, went on strike against themselves. They went out of business and were liquidated.
CBS radio news just said that the union and Hostess have reached an agreement and the 18,000 jobs are saved.
“If Bimbo (the Mexican company) becomes the buyer, they will probably not only move production to right-to-work states, they will hire the newly minted DREAMers to replace the the union employees.”
. . . and the SEIU would be firmly entrenched in 5 years.
They will want the new owners to pay them what they were demanding of Hostess. They’re not very smart.
I hope they get bought and only re-established in right to work states. Deprive the union states of twinkies or sell them at a price reflecting the transportation to get them there.
two unions - bakers and drivers.
That is what I would expect.
Who did the unions blame then?
What about those GREAT cupcakes and donuts???
