The Greedy Unions Killed the Twinkie

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches will not be the same without Wonder Bread, thanks to the greedy lowlifes in the Bakers union that forced a shutdown of a national chain that delivered tasty treats and baked goods to the nation for 80 years.

CEO and personal hero Greg Rayburn followed through on his threat to close the Hostess corporation and sell off all of its assets if striking workers continued with their idiotic work stoppages. Now 18,000 former employees will be pounding the streets, applying for food stamps and hoping their states set up ObamaCare exchanges to give them free healthcare.

From FoxNews here:

North Texas-based Hostess Brands, Inc. has decided to go out of business and liquidate its assets after failing to win back striking workers.

“We deeply regret the necessity of today’s decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike,” said Gregory F. Rayburn, chief executive officer. “Hostess Brands will move promptly to lay off most of its 18,500-member workforce and focus on selling its assets to the highest bidders.

About one-third of the company’s workers are union members who are unhappy about the company’s cutbacks during its bankruptcy reorganization.

But problems with several unions — including the Bakery, Confectionery, and Tobacco workers and the Grain Millers International Union — have prevented the company from moving forward.

“For employees whose jobs will be eliminated, additional information can be found at www.hostessbrands.info. The website also contains information for customers and vendors. Most employees who lose their jobs should be eligible for government-provided unemployment benefits,” a news release from the company states.

Some Hostess products include Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Ho-Hos, Fruit Pies and Wonder Bread. The brand also ownd Drakes, Dolly Madison, Nature’s Pride and Merita.

Again, this is the America those Union goons voted for. Hope they enjoy their newfound poverty. I shan’t be shedding any tears over it, except for maybe a few tears of laughter.
