Hostess Brands permanently closing
3 bakeries following employee strike

Associated Press, by Staff

IRVING, Texas — Hostess Brands Inc. is permanently closing three bakeries following a nationwide strike by its bakers union. The Texas-based maker of Twinkies and Ding Dongs says the strike has prevented it from producing and delivering products. Hostess warned earlier this month that the strike, by about 30 percent of its workforce, could lead to bakery closures. It said Monday that it will close bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati that collectively employ 627 workers. The company has about 18,300 employees. Thousands of members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers

Reality adjustment. I expect a lot more of that the next 4 years.

Part of the severance package should include the name, address, home phone number and cell phone numbers of each union official so they can send their personal thank you.

Most bakeries work under the Department of Agriculture, it´s a very hard job and dangerous as well.

The OSHA regs are already so complex and expensive you are now paying 2.50 a loaf for white bread that should cost .50, add in the unions and wah la the dough boy is out of work.

Bring these factories on down to the South where its right to work; Seattle, St. Louis, and Cincinnati are solid Obama territory so they don´t really need jobs anyway.

Just another example of the unions killing the golden goose. Good for Hostess standing for their principles...and their investors. Bad for the non-union folks on that payroll. Hopefully many will be willing/able to relocate and be worked into one of the surviving bakeries. Unions should--instead of spending millions of dollars on Democrat pols--- simply start their own companies, then run themselves out of business. If I was hiring for a company: Me: "Have you ever been a member of a union?" Applicant: "Yes." Me: "Next."

fta: “We deeply regret this decision, but we have repeatedly explained that we will close facilities that are no longer able to produce and deliver products because of a work stoppage — and that we will close the entire company if widespread strikes cripple our business,” Hostess Brands CEO Gregory F. Rayburn said.

Many companies put their plans on hold a couple of years ago when it became unclear what return they could expect on any further investment. Last Tuesday evening the plans for investment in the United States died.
Companies are in no mode to take any stuff from anyone, especially union employees. The capitol they do have to invest will probably do better outside the US and it is now a question of do they shut down US facilities and sell or move the machinery to a new plant or just walk away. At least shutting down the US operation will stop the bleeding.

Same here #31. I knew the owner of a carpeting business 40+ years ago (sold, delivered and installed commercial carpeting for businesses)who had a dozen employees. They tried to form/join a union. No problem. He closed the doors, terminated his lease and went to work as a one-man regional distributor company for a carpet manufacturer. I asked what happened to the employees. He didn´t know and didn´t seem to care (any more than they cared about him, that is).

Many years ago a paper mill on Lincoln NH went on strike. The river into which they dumped their effluent was upgraded while they were on strike. The net effect was that they needed to treat their discharges, and they could not afford to do so. Plant closed, cleaner river, and union dues gone. What´s wrong with this picture?

This is why unions increasingly like gooberment unionization much more than private enterprise unionization... Gooberment has less ability and propensity to abrogate their contracts by going out of business or seeking bankruptcy relief.

I agree with poster #1 and #38.

One day a few weeks ago I got up and turned on Fox News and Mitt Romney was standing in front of a big yellow truck. I thought, I´ve seen that truck before. It was Marvin Wood and they have a plant in my small town that they struggle to keep open in these hard times. They are a family friendly company and have a "no lay-off" policy. They have had to cut hours to cut costs, but they keep up the employees´ health benefits. If they were union, I´m sure they would have closed the plant years ago.

If you watch "How its made" (awesome show, btw) you will notice that there´s an amazing amount of automation in today´s factories. The solution to these labor issues is to invest in automation. Sure there´s maintenance of the equipment, but that´s small numbers by comparison and can usually be contracted out.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
