Unions suck

guessing the unions have no problems putting 18000+ Hostess employees out of work because they refused a slight pay cut contract...

Another comment from someone who has a political axe to grind without knowing one detail of the actual situation but uses it to post a comment anyway to try and score political points.

It was one union. The Teamsters had agreed to their contract.

This is exactly the uneducated drivel that is bringing this country down. They wanted a 30% paycut, after an earlier 25% paycut. Are you saying you can survive that kind of paycut and call it a slight payout? The executives gave themselves million dollars in bonuses before asking for that second paycut. It was a bain capital style hedge fund that bought Hostess and began these cuts. They will sell off the pieces and patents/trademarks like they planned to in the first place.

The management never reinvested into the company, they were baking on 60+ year old gear. Had they done so they could of gotten by with less employees and kept the standard of living up for the remaining employees.

But I bet it's okay for everyone to make minimum wage.

Except you.
