No More Twinkies? It. Can't. Happen. In. America.

Hostess Brands says it will stop operations and liquidate the entire company if striking workers don't get back on the job by tonight.

Hostess' labor force walked off the job last week as the company sought to cut pay 8 percent and benefits by up to 32 percent. That leaves workers with a paycheck the size of a Donette.

If the bakers and confectioners don't return by tonight, the company has announced it will go to bankruptcy court to get approval to cease operations as soon as Tuesday.

America can then say goodbye to Twinkies...

This is why Unions suck ass.

Because they hold the employer hostage if the employees don't like something. This is a free country (Supposedly) so why not just get a job somewhere else if you don't like it? Private Companies aren't required to follow the same rules as Govt Sector Employment.

The reason Hostess said that, I'm pretty sure, is because they have orders they have to fill. If they don't get filled, they lose the order. If they lose the order, then the company can't meet payroll or any other benefits.

Unions are a Socialist Concept and aren't necessarily good. Just look at the German Nationalist Party. They are both Labor and Politically focused. Labor = manpower. Politics = control, deceit, fear, etc. Labor + Politics = Facism

Yes it is a free country. that means workers have every right in the world to organize and demand a fair share of the profits from their production. It is the workers who should get loyalty from the owners, not stock holders.

I'm going to have to side with Jolly on this one.

The Wagner act allows unions to extort money out of companies. Without the Wagner act it would be a level playing field. The unions could ask for more money, within limits. When they asked for too much money the company would replace them.

A fair negotiation.

This is step two of their evil plan.

Step 1) Begin legalizing cannabis.

Step 2) Close down the Twinkies factories.


When the stoners find out the Twinkies supplies are running out there will be pandemonium. Stoners across the country will rise from their couches in panic and anger devouring everything in their path. It will be hell...

The Myans saw this coming...

Twinkies are the best thing for getting rid of munchies.

Or so I hear...

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
