Workers at Awrey´s Bakeries warned
to prepare for layoffs, reports say

Detroit Free Press, by Frank Witsil

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 11/28/2012 6:10:34 PM

Workers at Awrey Bakeries in Livonia are bracing for bad news. The company, more than a century-old, said today that it had no comment on news reports that its future is in jeopardy and that it is about to inform employees that they could be out of jobs in 60 days. But one longtime employee confirmed that union representatives told him that unless Awrey’s finds an investor or buyer, he and about 150 other employees would be out of work, and to expect official company notifications in the mail. “They said they don’t know if we are going to be open

Obama told us before the election that things were getting better.

By the way, is there a website that keeps track of all the layoffs since the majority of my fellow citizens voted to have Obama save our economy?

The union should buy the bakery and run it because they are so much smarter than everyone else.

Actually, I am glad to see that union members are now reaping the results of their votes for Obama. Apparently they are/were too stupid to see the writing on the wall and bought in to all the lies coming from Obama and his henchmen

Things are right on track. The Obama/Union policies close up the little guys ( in many cases non union jobs) and the big companies (union workers) take up he slack in the market. What´s the problem?

this is (per the article) a union shop. And the employee interviewed said ´´they´´ ran the company into the ground. ´´They´´ obviously referring to management. It seems that Awrey´s was bought by an investment group. Thank GOD it wasn´t Bain Capital - we´d never hear the end of it...

There is not enough information in the article
for anyone to comment knowledgeably. We don´t know if it was caused by economic conditions,
union demands, outside ownership, Obamacare on the Horizon, or other conditions, or a combination of them. All we know is that a lot of seemingly good workers will be out of jobs, and that is a sad situation. Worse, it is a growing concern because of the new Health Care law and Government regulations ,including taxes. The owners are most likely the so-called one percent and they are NOT going to stand still and take losses if no turnaround is in sight.

Slightly off topic, but I shop at a place where they are selling little snack cakes that are imported from Italy. I tried them & I think they are better than American Hostess cakes - the flavors are unusual, they are much prettier and they are competitively priced.

State schools isolate non-Muslims
Telegraph [UK], by Andrew Gilligan    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 4/18/2014 11:46:16 PM     Post Reply
Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The news has those in the coffee industry worried. "I am very concerned," said Mauricio Galindo, head of International Coffee Organization.

Roughly 25 Muslim drivers dispatched to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are refusing to drive cabs adorned with advertising for the region’s upcoming Gay Games, citing religious reasons. Two of the three companies operating at Ohio´s largest airport were informed by the drivers — one-third of the airport’s total fleet — last week that they will no longer participate in the airport’s dedicated taxicab program. The companies, Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab, were told by the drivers that their decision was based on religious reasons, airport spokeswoman Jacqueline Mayo told FoxNews.com.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
