    Hostess Executives Received Large Pay Increases While The Company Was Preparing A Bankruptcy Filing.


    Hostess management, which is currently blaming unions for killing the Twinkie, awarded company execs absurdly large raises around the same time as filing for bankruptcy in January 2012 - including a 300% pay raise for then-CEO Brian Driscoll.

    According to the the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union:

    "As the company was preparing to file for bankruptcy earlier this year, the then CEO of Hostess was awarded a 300 percent raise (from approximately $750,000 to $2,550,000) and at least nine other top executives of the company received massive pay raises. One such executive received a pay increase from $500,000 to $900,000 and another received one taking his salary from $375,000 to $656,256."

    The upper management was never going to let the business succeed. It was worth more to THEM sold off.
