Skip to comments.Union: 'Bain-style' killing of Twinkie (Romney's fault)
Posted on 11/16/2012 10:35:11 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY
The Bain attack is back.
This time its being used against Hostess Brands, the Twinkies and Wonder Bread maker that announced Friday it was closing. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka drew the comparison in a public statement Friday.
Whats happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of whats wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor, Trumka said in a public statement. Crony capitalism and consistently poor management drove Hostess into the ground, but its workers are paying the price.
Earlier Friday, Hostess Brands announced that it would be closing, which the company said was precipitated by a workers strike.
Trumkas comparing Hostess to Brain comes after an election in which former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was criticized for co-founding Bain Capital.

Richard Trumka, the very picture of chubby screaming lying communist.
umm your guy won. Enjoy your free birth control!
I am glad Trumka told me the truth, I was going to blame it on the Union not having sense enough to quit striking.
One of the comments:
“They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney there would be massive layoffs. And they were right.” LOL
Hey, Trumka, if you and your union are so business-saavy, why don't you buy the Hostess assests and make it work.
Most people are on to this BS now. Reverse the topic or even change the topic to demonize the other side. Bush’s fault, Romney’s fault. Trumpka is his parent’s fault. His mother should have had an abortion. Fat ugly, communist bastard.
Perfect, Kosciusco; perfect. You win.
No, he wants Obama to seize the assets and give them to the Baker’s Union.
How could a company be so evil as to not pay people what they want?
leftists never take credit for their successes
Nope. Soetoro owns it. Where was the GM-style bailout where the bond-holder’s wealth transferred to the Union? Twinkle-toes should have bailed out the Twinkie-makers. Or else retrain these bakers to make arugala salads and wagyu beef.
Well you will not have your twinkies now.
Great post. I spent my entire working career listening to UAW types talk about how things were ALWAYS the fault of management.
If Baraq can pony up hundreds of million for his green energy companies that create dozens of jobs, why not for 18,000 union members? Call ‘em GREEN TWINKIES !!
yeah, 5000 goonyan employess make the remaining 13000 non-union ones pay.
Will not be surprised if the company that owns “Little Debbies” will end up taking over.
And within a year, they would be unemployed again.
