Twinkie Maker Hostess to Close
Wall Street Journal, by Rachel Feintzeig

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 11/16/2012 9:45:44 AM

Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of iconic treats such as Twinkies and traditional pantry staple Wonder Bread, is shuttering its plants and liquidating its 82-year-old business. A victim of changing consumer tastes, high commodity costs and, most importantly, strained labor relations, Hostess ultimately was brought to its knees by a national strike orchestrated by its second-largest union. The work stoppage, launched Nov. 9 by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union to protest a fresh labor contract, affected about two-thirds of Hostess´s 36 plants. The strike was making it impossible for the Irving, Tex., company to continue producing

Comments:
Don´t you love it when the union leader shoot themselves in the foot? I feel sorry for the people who didn´t want to strike but got swept along in this mess.

One third of the workers were union. ONE. THIRD. And yet they brought everyone down. May the union card holders in this travesty NEVER find work again.

Oh, the union bosses accomplished exactly what they intended to. It was intended as a lesson to other companies: go along with us or we´ll make you shutter the plant, even if we don´t represent the majority of your workers. The union bosses don´t care about the workers, only their own power and money.

The word "Maker" in the headline strikes me.
It takes at least ten makers to pay the salaries alone of each gov´t worker making the same pay. Not counting all the other costs of running the gov´t and handouts, plus state and local. What is the ratio right now? I wonder.

Sorry for the non-union employees losing their jobs. I wish someone with the knowledge and experience would start a job force data base for conservatives searching for work; rather like an Angie´s List of motivated employees. Conservatives must help each other get through these hard times.

As to the impact of Hostess closing upon me personally, not to worry. I have a copycat Twinkie filling recipe that gets raves every time I serve it. Yum.

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism.

Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race.

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but
