BJ'S BLOG 12/03/12 "Bringing Back Twinkies"
For those who haven’t heard, Hostess, the company that make Twinkies and Ding Dongs, went bankrupt and was shutting down its doors for good.
There was a huge public outcry to save these pastries from leaving store shelves.
Well, last week, the executives who killed it said that Twinkies will live on, if they get their 1.8 million dollar bonuses first, and they got it approved!
This is what is wrong with America; they went bankrupt and yet still think it’s ok to have these ridiculous demands!
I don't care who you are, but as an executive, you have failed because the product that I, and millions of others love, is no longer on the shelves for us to buy. You can blame the union or whoever you want, but the bottom line is…you are the one who has failed, so take accountability for your mistakes!
The worst part of this is how greedy these executives are. This bankruptcy wiped out 18 thousand jobs and these jerks are so entitled they think they should get their bonuses. This is why I hate big business; they don’t care about the little guy or their customers anymore.
