Hostess bakers go on strike
New York Post, by Josh Kosman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/10/2012 1:14:10 PM

Union workers at Hostess Brands’ plant in Lenexa, Kan., walked off the job yesterday, kicking off a potentially crippling strike that could force the company to liquidate. Hostess’s second-largest union, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers & Grain Millers International Union, said workers at more plants may strike in the next few days. The Post reported exclusively yesterday that as many as eight of the 36 bakery locals were planning a strike this weekend after the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and other products imposed an 8 percent pay cut on workers. The bakers represent about 6,000

I know of at least 25 million Americans that won´t have much sympathy for them.

92% salary is better than 0% salary.
I hope the business shuts down, or moves to a "right to work" state.
Bust the unions.

Let´s see - an 8% pay cut, or a 100% pay cut. Apparently that´s a tough call for a union member.

When Kevcare (forced on us by the Kevlar President) really begins to take effect and companies have to cut back by laying people off, lowering salaries, cutting benefits and so on, and the unions start calling strikes, then what? Which bakery will be next? And then which vegetable canner? What follows?

What is it about the word "bankrupt" do the unions not understand?

Then you´ll whimper back and settle for less anyway. Your lost wages will take years to recoupe if ever.

Or you´ll be replaced... Working in a cupcake factory ain´t rocket science you know.

The workers workers would get the company, the creditors and owners would get shafted and there would be Twinkies galore for mankind.

Product placement could insert a gay character in the next Bond movie. I suggest the name Twinkies Forlunch. His evil ally would be the lesbian gangster Doughnuts Downthere.

In general,there´s quite a few morons that voted themselves out of a job re-electing Obama but these people take the cake and not a ho-ho cake.This is part of the union mentality that the business is always holding out on them money wise,same with government unions. Just borrow some more like the Philly mayor just did to keep teachers on the job,

Folks we all feel bad now because Obama bamboozled millions of people but time is on our side because liberalism always fails.

States are going to have no choice but to lay off government workers because revenue will drop like a rock when money has to go to pay for Obamacare. medicaid is already breaking states backs.

This is happening in Calif too. There is a grocery union on strike. I don´t know all the details but from what I understand the grocery chain wants to take away some of their medical benefits, which are extremely generous. So the employees are on strike. I can´t believe they these people don´t realize we are all losing something these days. I hope the owners hold out.

Maybe they think they have some leverage since two states just legalized recreational pot smoking. There´s a new market out there; can Hostess afford to pass up the opportunity?

Really, though, I don´t feel sorry for these people either. They´re lucky enough to have jobs.

On the heels of impending massiver country-wide layoffs coupled with extorting union strikes...fewer people will be employed, so fewer services and goods will be purchased, stock and market share will cave, foreclosures will escalate and the sales, payroll and property taxes will fade bunkrupting cities and States.

This is not only what the next four years will look like, but it is exactly the plan intended and orchestrated by BO, DNC, Pelosi, Reid and all unions.

The only missing component to this equation is when (not if) our bleak circumstances will embolden the ME, barbaric muslims and terrorists to unleash their holy jihad at a time of our worst economic circumstances in history and a decimated military, pre-WWII levels.

This is the true Obama legacy as well as business and Americans.

I still shop there and the union people get in your face and try to intimidate customers. Unfortunately, other stores in the center are suffering because of their behavior.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff.

The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

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

The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said.
