Anyways this gives me another great reason to move to Canada.

I was pointing out the people upthread using this as an excuse to rag on unions, whether or not they had anything to do with it.
Furthermore, It was not the "union" that rejected the company's offer, it was the employees themselves in a vote, where they rejected the offer overwhelmingly (92% voted to reject it).
Whether the bakers themselves were dumb for rejecting the offer is a separate matter.
This is however avoidable considering their old financial history wasn't exactly great, and the people that went on strike should've at the least done some homework, cause now they're out of a job and they just destroyed a company.
I'm literally going to the store and buying a few boxes of twinkies and devil dogs.
Wow <3 Korra<3 Giants<3
my dad lost his job over this. pretty pissed.
I eat healthy so i can keep this sexy bod, could care less. Feel sorry for the fatties out there though, this will be a tough one to swallow... lol
The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.
$22/hr unskilledunion laborers strike over not wanting a 10% pay cut.
They all get fired, and will probably have to accept employment making 50-60% less than they did before.
Sounds like they made a great decision.
From the article I read on either abcnews or cnn, they were paying as much as $22/hr for employees that were performing a task you could pretty much teach a middle schooler to do.
Pouring premeasured ingredients into a hopper or putting 6 wrapped cakes into a box is something that shouldn't earn more than minimum wage, but because of unions, it does. And that's why a box of twinkies costs $5, and why I stopped buying them a long time ago.
