Bye Bye Twinkies
And these are union factory jobs - the kind that Quinn like to accept lots of contributions from:
- Hostess Brands said Wednesday it will close its Schiller Park bakery, where Twinkies and other iconic sweets have been produced for 84 years, affecting about 400 employees.
Union officials said they were notified of the closure on the same day they were set to start negotiating a new labor contract. About 280 of the workers had voted to unionize in May.
The plant, among only four remaining Hostess bakeries in the country and the last left in Illinois, is expected to close Oct. 19. Twinkies were invented in the Chicago area in 1930.
So we'll be importing Twinkies from Indianapolis of all places - somewhere that Hostess isn't closing a factory for some reason. Chief Illiniwreck continues to fail at even maintaining the simple factory jobs that some of Rahm's illegals might called upon to do one day.
