Hostess liquidation puts 286
in NC out of work

News Observer [Raleigh,NC], by Kelly Poe

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/17/2012 7:14:04 AM

ROCKY MOUNT -- The 286 people who work in the Merita bread factory on North Church Street are out of work following Friday’s announcement that parent company Hostess will seek permission to end operations and liquidate its assets. About 75 of the workers participated in a nationwide strike that started at midnight Tuesday. Hostess Brands had warned the workers to return to work by 5 p.m. Thursday or face the company’s liquidation. The deadline came and went as picketers stood around a heater under umbrellas in the rain. “It’s five o’ clock and nobody’s crying,” one woman yelled.

Comments:
The comments on this article are indicative of the tolerant liberal mindset. These people don´t deserve their jobs because people are getting fat on unhealthy Twinkies made out of GMO´s. Totalitarianism comes so easy to them. The enviro movement and the ´healthy lifestyle´ liberals scare me.

The strikers make as much sense as the occupy Wall street group.

Well, NC is a right-to-work state, for all the good it did those 286.

We are a right to work state, yet:
About 300 workers at the Merita Bread plant in Orlando may soon be out of a job after the Hostess company filed for bankruptcy last week.
The wonderful warm bread smell from Michigan Ave to I-4, will be sadly missed.

These people actually think they´re heroic for surrendering their jobs at the altar of Obama.Too bad the people with this same mentality are running the government from top to bottom.Of course nobody quits a government job while they congratulate morons like this.

If you ever showed a liberal a balance sheet,smoke would come out of their ears.I only wish the owner blamed the closing on Obamacare.

I say if you participate in a strike that puts the company out of business and therefore you out of work you shouldn´t be entitled to unemployment benefits since you voluntarily participated. Same as quitting!

AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka, most frequent visitor to the White House, has led the Obama parade in switching blame (for everything) from President George Bush to Mitt Romney. He has invoked and blamed Bain Capital in his fiery speeches against Hostess Brands Co. Now, his union workers are out of their jobs and Mr. Trumka is claiming victory. The workers are blindly cheering, too, because they think that President Obama will take care of them while they lounge around idly and that will probably be true - for a little while - and then the free benefits are going to go away and reality will set in. Mr. Trumka is going to have less dues-paying members and yet all of these people rejoice. One more step ´forward´ for President Obama´s non-producing and idle America - God help us.

Hostess was in bad financial shape. In the last 10 years they had already gone through one bankruptcy and were in the midst of another, and they told their workers that their financial situation was precarious and that, in order for the company to survive, workers had to give back some of the gains they had made in salary and benefits (that were major factors in Hostess bankruptcies) in terms of an 8% pay cut.

So, let me get this straight. On the one hand there was having a job--at reduced pay, but still a job and, on the other hand, there was having no job. Those were the choices, and union workers chose to strike, and push the company over the cliff to its death.

What logic. Way to go!

I guess they all thought (that fraction of union workers that even bothered to vote on a strike) that the company--staggering along on its last legs--was bluffing, or perhaps they figured an Obamaphone and free air time, welfare, and sitting at home watching endless TV were peferable to having a real job.

P.S.--According to another article about this situation here on Lucianne, these workers --bakers, and delivery truck drivers remember, not highly educated rocket scientists--were pulling down as much as $22 per hour plus medical benefits, 9 weeks annual paid vacation, and a company pension.

Moreover, the Teamsters, the other union involved, decided not to strike and had issued a statement saying that its own financial experts had certified that Hostess was, indeed, on its last financial legs and was not bluffing about having to close if there was a strike against it, and still the Bakers union went on strike.

Talk about" cutting off your nose to spite your face"!

The Teamsters talked to management and saw the balance sheet, and told their members not to strike. They even urged the AFL-CIO to not be stupid. Trumka is still telling his out-of-work members management took 300% pay increases, and this was just a union busting ploy. And the idiots who struck still believe him.

Is it too naive to ask why Hostess didn´t simply hire other non-union workers who wanted jobs?

Remember the airline strike during the Reagan years? He fired their arses and the airlines hired other people. Why can´t this be done? You mean to tell me that non-union workers cannot be found to replace the Hostess union workers in a State like NC where jobs are scarce?

I don´t get it. Where is it carved in stone that when union workers refuse to work, they get fired and replaced by non-union workers who are willing to work?

M2, the company did bring in some temps. Some jobs require experience, and cannot be taught in a day.

Observer 177, the delivery truck drivers are not just delivering product: they are responsible for sales, too.

Shipping and sales route drivers all came into work. Do not blame them. Some production workers crossed the line as well, but not nearly enough. Production was less than half. Obviously, food is sensitive in production, especially bread, where shelf life is short. The Philadelphia plant completely shut down when they went on strike. Rocky Mount could not begin to keep up with Philadelphia´s demands as well as their own.

Lamont Phillips misunderstanding of his pension is telling: he thought that because the company could no longer contribute to it, that it no longer existed. I have no doubt the union encouraged this thinking.

My husband *was* the plant manager in Rocky Mount. He worked 60 hours a week, including weekends at home. As I asked in another post, who pickets a company in bankruptcy?

Trumka can just as well blame Michelle Obama for telling people not to purchase and consume items like Twinkies. It´s pretty simple, when a company can no longer sell enough of its products it will eventually go out of business, and there is nothing that the loud talking union thugs can do about that, everybody just loses their jobs.

Thomas had thought the threat to liquidate was hollow, but even though it wasn’t, he still thinks holding out was the best decision.

“We just could not keep giving and giving and giving,” Thomas said.

Silly wabbit. Now, instead of being short 8%, you´re short 100%.

I´ve worked for companies that suspended 401K contributions in hard times. That doesn´t mean the 401K goes away - you´re still contributing. What a bunch of fools. AND - I understand that after 01/01 the unemployment eligibility time will be dialed back from 99 weeks to 29 weeks. Happy Holidays - hope your kids enjoy the lump of coal.

When junk food companies go under it is more than the economy. It´s the over regulation, and the ridiculous union demands.

Junk food is recession proof, Hershey PA thrived during the depression because even in the worst of time sugar sells.

Here are my favorite parts from the article:

1) Lamont Phillips worked at the plant for 23 years. He is 41. He would qualify for full pension benefits in about 8 years. That would mean he could retire at age 49! Say what?

2) Johnny Thomas worked at the plan for 9 years. Thomas said he worries for those co-workers who can’t go back to school. He said many of his colleagues are single parents.

Typical Obama voters. Retire on a union pension early, don´t go to school (too hard, I guess), and don´t get married. Believe in Obama and the union bosses for your future. And when Obama and the union bosses throw you overboard, guess what? Obama and the union bosses WILL get their pensions. These sorry sap Hostess union workers will not get theirs. Serves them right for being ignorant, dumb, and stupid.

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night.

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park.

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
