Uh, no. You went on strike to destroy the company once, you won’t get the chance to do it a second time.

Nobody with half a brain wants to buy a union controlled company.

Someone should manufacture bumper stickers saying ‘Lost your job? Thank a Union!’.

I would put that on my car. And I detest bumper stickers on cars, especially my car.

Hmmm, are they now HOPING for Bain to step in? To bad the winner of the election spent the last 4 years demonizing “the rich.” Now these slaves get to reap the whirlwind, no matter which candidate won their votes!

“Former employees of Hostess Brands Inc. are now hoping that a buyer will save pieces of the liquidating company and put them back to work.”

Unionism is a mental disorder.

any buyer would be a fool to take former employees with their unions back.

Who buys a money loosing plant in a union shop state? Only a crony with a govt loan with zero equity at risk.

Solyndra ex-executives are looking for a new government funded venture...

If I bought Hostess I'd pack the whole shebang up and move it all to a right-to-work state.



Then I'd start makin' Twinkies and Ding-Dongs like there was no tomorrow!
(Never thought I'd write THAT sentence.)

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.

I live in Mexico. We MAKE Twinkies there REAL cheap. Soon you can order them on line at Amazon and avoid all of the Unionized bakers and drivers and bosses and union shops. Life is great...TWINKIE POWER.

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.
