I actually respect the CEO’s calling of the union’s bluff. And calling out that it was the union that brought them low.

Yes, management can be smacked here too. A couple of new products in the past 10 years may have been a help.

But the hole was dug, and the union asked them to lay in it.

However, I will miss Yodels, despite having not eaten one in about 20 years. I would guess that Bimbo will be snapping up most of the product lines, though.

(Plus, didja notice in the article that they paid a cool half million annually in property taxes to Wayne? Wow.)
