Hostess asked the employees to take a 8% pay cut to keep them in business so that 18,500 could have jobs.   Some of the unions, especially here in California, objected, and prefered to strike and yell and scream.

In the end, they all are out of a job.  They are hoping that another bakery with better benefits will come over and take them under their wings.  It may works for a few bakeries here in California, but the vast majority of Hostess bakeries and their employees will shut down and lose their jobs.

Sad.

Those things were 6 degrees of perversion from whatever inspired them in the first place.  Fuck fat people and their beloved frankenfoods.  Fuck companies that push pure shit down our throats with their unsolicited advertisements and child targeted packaging.  Fuck 37k tear filled eyes scanning the want-ads for 'Factory Workers Wanted.'

Btw, in Japan a 'hostess' is what they call a whore.  They'd still be in business if they called it Whore Cupcakes.  Did you remember a loaf of Insatiable Slut Bread, dear?  You'd remember that.

I laughed out loud, that was good.

I agree with you on this.  People were given their options, and took the wrong one.  I worked for a company, and back in 08, they told us we would take a 15% pay cut, or find other employment.  I took the cut until I moved on.
