That's because the union bosses are covered and the dumbasses think that a bankruptcy and liquidation would bring forward a white knight to save the company. Who in the hell would buy a union infested company like Hostess in this Obama/FDR economy and maintain the current benefit structure? Not a damn soul.
Yup....just watching these guys on local TV in southern Maine striking. A lot of these guys are pushung 60-plus. They lose these jobs, well, they are never working anywhere again for the wages & bennifits that they are getting now. Job suicide why the union fat-cats sit back & laugh.
You are right, there is simply no way in the world these unionists are keeping their jobs at the current pay and benefit level. Zero.
The business will likely be parceled out to regional contractors like Dr. Pepper and Big Red. Even though those are independent companies, they don’t produce and distribute most of their own product (Dr. Pepper does their own in Texas of course).
