I often bake at home, but I have never been able to match that Hostess Chocolate Cupcake with cream filling that my mind craves whenever I just happen to think about them. LOL.
Continental Baking has been hurting for years.
Bankrupt them ans sell off the assets.
At least if Bimbo buys them the union can go pound sand and the quality will be as good or improve!
“What the judge cannot do is force the owners or investors to toss in more money than they already have (at least to my knowledge of BK law).”
The judge also can’t force their suppliers to sell them ingredients.
Wow. I’m shocked so many in here are on the same page as the union goons and want Hostess to go down. So much for the faux sympathy that was expressed for the thousands of employees now out of work.
Damn. I should go back and study bankruptcy and practice in that field.
> I can’t believe that there are so many freepers into store bought sugary fatty creations.....doesn’t any body bake at home anymore?
I’ve honestly been wondering this myself lately. I mean, I don’t begrudge someone the right to eat whatever they want, but I swear at the grocery store the twinkie shelf is just collecting dust year after year. I haven’t had one in 30-40 years, easily.
Have you noticed that the entitlement generation (twenty and thirty somethings)is much more “pudgy” and out of shape than those of us who graduated from high school in the seventies?
Oh anyway, here is the only thing the NY Times is good for:
Step foot in a JCPenney just once after the public their public service announcement. Haven’t been back in ages.
Talking to a guy the other who told me he was in the store the other day. Jeans on sale: 2 for $5.00. How’s that announcement working out for you, JCPenney?
Can the judge force them to mediate with the union? Thats my impression.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Union law is such a hodge podge from state to state. Maybe the judge can order binding arbitration, but the funny thing is that in this case it would be the same as seling the business to the Union. Get the Union to put up its pension funds as colateral and let the Union RUN the business and see if they can save it.
If not, tell the Union to take a hike, and order it back to work.
Twinkie are kind of nasty if you ask me;HoHos and DingDong are CHOCOLATE , andgood!
BUt not good enough to buy on ebay.
Little Debbie is about to see an upturn in business.
"Judge Suggests Mediation to Save Hos..."
So I'm thinking this:
