Hostess employees hope buyers
will put them back to work

Jacksonville Business Journal, by Michael Clinton

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/19/2012 12:41:26 PM

Former employees of Hostess Brands Inc. are now hoping that a buyer will save pieces of the liquidating company and put them back to work. Hostess set a 5 p.m. Nov. 15 deadline for workers involved in a union-organized strike to return to work. The company warned that if the ongoing labor strike continued it would force the company into liquidation, and it wasn’t bluffing — having announced plans to liquidate and lay off 18,000 employees. But now those that are out of work, including nearly 200 in Jacksonville, are hoping that someone will buy the

I´m sure the new owners would want to hire the same people who brought down the company. s/o What would you expect from the selfish idiots. I´m sure those thousands who lost their jobs are thrilled with their hollow victory. s/o

It´s the brand, not the workers that has value.

New owners will rush in with their money in their hot little hands, hardly able to wait to restore the union and its ´bargaining rights´. Idiots!

Really? How stupid can these people be? They were a major cause of Hostess Brands´ failure. Do they honestly think that any new owners - who owe NOTHING to the union - will employ any union workers?

In the WSJ today, Frank Hurt (the idiot in charge of the bakers´ union) said that a new buyer could be suprred to offer a better deal after seeing the bakers´ negative reaction to Hostess´ proposal.

In his dreams. He´s responsible for 18,500 people losing their jobs. Very few of them (if any) will be offered jobs by whoever buys the rights to Hostess products. Most likely, production will move to right-to-work states with non-union labor.

Not to worry, Frank. I´m sure you´ll keep your big salary.

Have you ever noticed that the union "spokesperson" is always a wild eyed woman with a butt that is an ax handle broad and wears giant loop earrings?
And has a voice that would spay a tom cat at a distance of 100 yards.

Never see a reasonable talking person as a union spokesperson.

Agree, the brand is valuable. Some of the managers no doubt are worth retaining. Some of the plants, certain not all of them.

As cruel as it sounds the production employees are expendable. And the unionized bakers are the most, for they are the hardest to deal with.

Just remember that even the Teamsters accepted the 8% pay cut and there were many non-union Hostess workers. About 5,000 bakers union idiots lost 18,500 people their jobs. I would say the union bakers are the least likely to ever be reemployed as union bakers which is exactly what they deserve.

Notice that the hopes of the former workers are now news. Clearly, the union thinks they have some authority on where Hostess goes from here. The union and the employees are finished.

There are, however, no mentions of the hopes, dreams, and investment capital of the owners. Those are not news. But, it is strictly up to Hostess and their creditors on how the assets will be handled. Even if a ´savior´ is interested, the owners are under no obligation to cooperate. Hostess may be worth more in parts than as a whole.

The 18,000 former workers now have plenty of time to consider what they will or will not for do for various dollar amounts. Meanwhile, fat union leaders will have a fine Thanksgiving meal and plan their next walkout. Good luck, turkeys.

If the union believes it was not the problem and that it was the management they can throw the thing into Chapter 7 and bid for it using union funds to buy the company and then they can run it themselves.
Unions are like the old joke about the machine that is broken which shuts down the whole line until it can be fixed. The owner calls the engineer to come fix it and the engineer studies it and takes a hammer and bangs it once and the machine starts. The engineers charges $1,000. The owner demands an itemized statement and the engineer sends him one - hitting the machine with a hammer $10, knowing where to hit $990. The union is the $10 effort, they just forget that.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas. Andrea Lynne Chisholm, 54, and Colin A.J. Chisholm III, 62, were charged in March with making $167,420 in fraudulent medical and food-stamp claims from 2005 to 2012. They were deported from the Bahamas on Monday and arrested hours later in Florida, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists.

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

After an international bidding war, a Westside mansion often described as a French palace has changed hands for $102 million, making it the most expensive residential sale ever recorded in Southern California. As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home´s unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
