Company warned them too. They went on strike anyway and now they're crying because the company closed the doors. Bunch of morons.

I hate to say it, but I hope this becomes the norm so every one realizes how fucked up this really is. Blows my mind how much people want to push, when they don't even realize thier lucky to have a job right now at all.

I used to tell people all the time, as soon as the books say the company will save money closing a plant, the doors will be locked.

Place next to us in non union. The union comes by every two weeks and pickets for 2 hours. Try to park in our lot and take up all the spots. When we kick them out, they say we are assholes for not supporting them. None of them even worked for the company, it just got a job that they underbid the union company and won the work.

Supply and demand is the way of work these days. the person with the lowest bid wins, period. Deal with it.

What did the company want that drove them to strike?

That's a pretty important detail.

People who read more than the comics and sports page don't need someone to come 'face to face' to tell them their job is coming to an end.

Basically, Hostess wanted wage concessions.

I couldn't help but laugh when I got to the end of the article where Hostess told the unions that if they strike they will immediately liquidate the entire company... two months ago...

They went on strike anyway. Immediate move to liquidate... everyone lost their jobs...

They were probably going under anyway, this isn't the first time they've gone bankrupt.
