Even Twinkies Can’t Survive this Economy

Wealth Wire reports the following:

(November 15, 2012)  After four days of striking by employees at Hostess, the company has returned with an ultimatum: if enough workers do not resume their positions by 5:00pm EST today, CEO Gregory Rayburn will be forced to liquidate the entire company, leaving the nearly 18,000 employees jobless.

The strike began on Nov. 9, after the company won the right to impose an 8% pay cut on employees in bankruptcy court. Now, the company says, if the strike doesn’t end by the end of the day, they will seek permission from U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain to shut down all operations and sell assets.

In other words, even Twinkies can’t survive this economy!

Twinkies, born during the ‘Great’ Depression!  Seriously?

What will the OWS street people live on now?  Doritos?

If you’re a prepper, you might want to stock up on chemically-produced, long shelf life treats now.  Bob H. (of Ezell’s) kept a Twinkie in his desk for eleven years, with the end wrap open to the elements.  No mold = no food value + preservatives.

He eventually disposed of it; didn’t eat it, though.

  1. I was just thinking about picking up some with the groceries. Don’t eat them often but heck they’ll keep in the food locker forever.

  2. Driving past the Hostess factory in St. Louis used to be one of the few pleasures of the commute: the smell of baking bread was heavenly.

    Sadly I don’t think the Republic…what little is left of it, will either.

  6. You know its the end of line when Hostess can’t cater to cops anymore. Very sad indeed.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
