Twinkie production shutdown

Sun Nov 18, 2012 18:07

Twinkie maker Hostess Brands declared on 18 November, 2012 that the company was going to shut down due to insolvency in face of a nationwide strike called by Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers' International Union. The shutdown was going to affect 33 bakeries, 565 distribution centres, 570 bakery outlet stores and over 18,500 people employed in the overall operations. - Wikipedia

It's certainly weird, but I never really did like them.

They don't taste good enough for how bad they are for you.

Eh, twinkies will still be here, just not under the Hostess name anymore.
i am surprised to see Hostess going under, however.

Bad management, fucker at the top thought they could keep gouging their employees. Fuckers thought they were bullet proof and pushed too hard and broke it.

It fucking sucks for the workers. The only thing they did wrong was work for a bunch of shitty mangers.

It's an all too common story nowadays.

What's amazing is the scale of the strike! Nationally organized across multiple disciplines and hundreds of workplaces.

You really have to piss someone off to warrant that level of response.

Yeah, one of Frohmans chins is just because of Hostess products. But yeah, those assholes took a 300% pay raise while they stopped paying into the workers pension fund, then they said they were shutting down after only 3 days. If you can't last 3 days with no workers, then there are bigger problems. When they blamed the union, it backfired. I for one think they taste like shit, so I could care less. But this is the America we live in, stupid people like Frohman keep voting for the GOP, no matter how fucking batshit they get, and the GOP would murder a schoolbus full of children to make a profit.

Two things, Smith:

1. Don't like Twinkies, and

2. Didn't vote.

Though some Hostess products were okay. Little Debbie is better though.

Does anyone actually like Twinkies?

I mean, I eat pure, straight sugary shit. I enjoy eating candy corn every now and then for christ's sake. Even I think Twinkies are fucking gross.

What kind of obese monstrosity would you have to be to think Twinkies were good?

I think I had one in the 90's? I liked the cream filling? The last time twinkies were relevant in my life was when Family guy made that joke about twinkies being indestructible.
