WTF? In this day and age of limited research, disinterest in bipartisan politics, and a strong desire to drop the I told you so, of course a failing business is going to become political fodder.

This discussion should probably be in politics...

Hardly anyone knows that the unions already took a 30% pay cut, and the company was demanding a further cut that would bring their wages down to about half of what they were making in 2005.

They weren't even A reason. It would be like saying that the Big Mac I bought for $2 is the reason I can't make my mortgage payment.

As for "poorly run" - poorly run also includes allowing salary and benefit packages to reach unsustainable levels.

btw

I know nothing of the detailed financials of this company. It seems it's been badly run for a long time and was in need of major re-working. It seems that the costs imposed by Obamacare could not possibly have caused this going back several years, although they could aggravate it should the company have been continuing operations.

Also - the top four executives were paid $1 for 2012. Their salaries (with raises) were to be re-instated in 2013.

The new CEO was offered this "big raise" (i.e. promotion) in order to incentivize him to stay and try to run the flailing company. Yes, a new $1.95 million pay package, but they just got rid of the old CEO who they were paying $1.4 million a year to.

All in all - this is nothing but a ruse. There is absolutely no way the executive pay packages is what brought this company down. Period.

The company has $860 million in debt and has been losing ~$150 million a year for the last few years.

The total of the raises the executives got is approximately $4 million.

While certainly a shitty PR move, it is by far and away NOT a big contributor to the bankruptcy.

I wonder how many people reading this are aware that the CEO received a huge raise NOT because he just "got it" but because he was only promoted to CEO in the spring? Probably next to nobody.

The New Norm Minority Rules. Of 18500 workers 5000 were Union. They should have locked them out and hired scabs.

i see someone blaming someone else ( obama) instead of blaming the company for screwing over their workers to benefit themselves.

" Actually saw one idiot selling a box of Twinkies for $1500."

The person BUYING a box of Twinkies for $1500 is the idiot. The seller is a genius.

Hostess Bakery, is the first casualty of the Obamacare and the Unions.

yea lets blame obama for everything. while hostess was trying to cut bakers pay by 8% + benefits by 32% the ceo gave himself a 300% raise. 9 executives received 60-100% raises while filing their 2nd bankruptcy. meanwhile they stopped paying into the employees pension owing over 160 million dollars. but yea lets blame the obamacare for it.
