18,500 layed off by Hostess/company liquidating!
A small union's stubbornness in contract talks with Hostess is being blamed for the shutdown of one of America's snack food icons, the loss of 18,500 jobs just before the holiday season and much-needed tax revenue from hundreds of plants and shops across the country.

Saban eats Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies. Little Debbie is recession-proof, iyam.
Saban doesn't eat twinkies an clearly very few other people do.
My bad, guys... glad to know it's "Little Debbies!"
And I wouldn't worry all that much about the future of Twinkies, either. They're selling assets in bankruptcy, but that just means that the brand will be bought by somebody else.
Not a recession problem; a union problem
The CEO told the employees take a 30% pay cut or they have to close cause they are hemorrhaging money.
How does anyone not know what our Coach eats as a snack by now? LOL how many little BAMA fans are running around buying twinkies because they believe Coach Saban eats them? Well, obviously not many but ONE is too many
Shoot and miss. Crowd yells air ball air ball....
Saban feels insulted right now...

It's a people not eating as much shitty food problem. Capitalism at work.
You think Saban eats Hostess Twinkies? What a Ding-Dong!

This pic is the twinkie section at a Knoxville, TN Kroger. Serious pic. Tweeted by ESPN's Darren Rovell.
What you failed to mention is the way that company was pushed into insolvency by their striking labor unions. Damned greedy bastiges. They don't care about the 18,000 jobs they killed.
Huh? I'm pointing out that the employees are to blame. Company has to pay less or close. Demand for their products isn't there yet the employees think they are entitled to something.

It was apparently not a bluff.
Folks asking about pics so 1. Near Skagway AK 2. Ketchikan AK 3. Space Needle in Seattle. This summer was a great trip.

Well, did you fail to mention it, or not? For the benefit of those not familiar with this typical act of greed by the unions, I felt compelled to provide some pithy information.
*laugh* Well played.
