Yep, they were fools. They put 500 million into the company trying to save it.

Somebody will buy the rights, make the product in Mexico and make a killing.

Bain-type move? Really? Is that the new buzz word? Did you say the same thing 25 years ago when Beatrice was taking over a boatload of companies? What about Kraft or Nestle inhaling loads of companies? They sunk a lot of cash into Hostess, but you were not paying any attention, were you?

What did the UNION to try to save it?
I hope to HELL all those jobs go to Mexico.
As long I get my cupcakes, I don't really care how many union boys lose their jobs, homes, whatever. Me Me Me....I will adopt the union boy philosophy

Time for the worthless labor force in this country to learn a good lesson. These idiots voted themselves out of work and they voted the coutnry out of prosperity. The truth is that all unskilled labor in this country is now competing for the same jobs as all unskilled labor word-wide. Enjoy the trip, bots, you voted for it. I don't see much competition for real jobs on a picket line.....

Daily Kos?
Worker's Gazzette?
Bottom line, 18K out of work that could be working today.
If they can find cheaper labor off shore, they are nuts to not go there.

The workers voted for the anit-business OBama reign of terror, so now they can see how nice it is too live in a dired up coutnry.

YOU do know there is a petition to socialize the bakery for twinkies and it was sent to BO

I guess it only needs 25000 signitures and they already have 18000

The Teamster's union was all for the offer to buy a 25% stake in the compnay in the first bankruptcy, but the bakers and confection union said NO GO. Had they owned 25%, they could have had more leverage and even gotten finaincing to buy the remaining 75%.

Wouldn't it be a hoot if Romney buys Hostess and reopens it with non-union workers?

Anything to get a jab in there eh?...

Couldn't be a failed business model...

Had to be Romney's fault.

I think I've got a new catch-phrase, "keeping it Bain-style." Its a lot like "Keeping it real" only much more dark and sinister.
