It's going to start happening to a lot of companies.

It's the George Soros 'European Model' - part of government consolidation.

It's okay...the government will soon issue replacements.

I want to believe that they were "overcapacity" because demand for that crap is dying, but I don't think that's the case.

Yeah, the whole ****ing thing is a disaster, but hopefully it will lead to some real changes in collective bargaining.

This is a prime example why the new "normal" unemployment rate is going to be 6-7%, not the 3-4% that we have previously been used to. Low-income workers are going to be more content to just say **** it and take unemployment for years on end instead of taking less to keep an undesirable job.

Our welfare system essentially incentivizes this attitude, and US taxpayers will pay for it.

This is terrible timing.

States are beginning to legalize recreational marijuana and now Hostess is going out of business?

Frito Lay stocks just went up.

Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation Benefits expires next month. Depending on the state, people are only going to get like 6 months of benefits.
