Americans awoke this morning to the news that an iconic American company will close its doors costing 18,000 workers their jobs after labor bosses within the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) organized massive strikes.
Hostess is the maker of numerous well-known and beloved products including Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread.
The BCTGM is affiliated with the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The AFL-CIO's boss is Richard Trumka and earlier this year he boasted, "I'm at the White House a couple times a week – two or three times a week."
yep that is what I want from the president..
