Far as Grupo Bimbo in 2007, it was Bimbo who walked away from the deal. Allowing Yucaipa to buy it for 580 million instead.
Far as not the unions fault. All the other unions agreed to the deal that would have saved Hostess, except one. The bakers union. And it was they who forced the company to close their doors. Had they agreed to the deal as the others did, hostess would not have closed.
PS, Don't waste your time on the pancake wrapped sausage nuggets. And nothing they sell is as good as a McDonald's sausage biscuit. It just isn't.
But those workers won't be unionized.
I work for a company that pays pretty decent and offers benefits. They have made it clear that they don't go for unions, and I'm okay with that. Maybe unions aren't as necessary as they used to be. In the end, they sort of seem like another company. They serve their customers, no matter how irrational what they want might be.
I do think unions are necessary in some settings, but not all. What it comes down to is whether we trust our employers. Some employers are not worthy of trust. Some are.
