Agreed, super messed up. This is after the union had already accepted cuts years ago in order for the business to keep running. In hindsight, it was only a matter of time. People are trying to eat healthier, and these sugary snack foods were the first thing off most people's lists (seriously, the only time I ever bought these was at a gas station in the middle of nowhere during a road trip), and it definitely didn't help that management was terrible either (7 different CEOs in 10 years.. that's very high turnover).
It's times like these that make me want more Elizabeth Warrens in a sense. Clearly the wealthy have had things stacked in their favor for quite some time, I'm hoping the pendulum swings the other way for a change to benefit the middle class for once.
The first bankruptcy run, both unions agreed to cuts, this time around only the teamsters did.
