The collapse of capitalism & white collar society will be like an avalanche, picking up Spd & growing ever larger & more destructive.

& blue collar will get the shaft first.

Yes lowering the standard of living across the board, worldwide.

Funny some people actually think this kind of thing is good for equality.

What an Ebay item. That could bring in big buckaroos.
Why not do it, and share the money with them? Win Win.

This economy is a cereal killer.

I do.

I put mine in containers. I break the box down and put it in the cardboard pile to use to light my fireplace.

Frosted Flakes are blah anyway. They get mushy too fast. I'm a raisin bran person myself but for junk cereal, I loves me some peanut butter crunch.

Again, its that same mentality that everyone should have a job no matter what. The company is not allowed to let go of their employees for any reason they see fit? Any company should be allowed to let go of any employee for any reason outside of discrimination.

There is a very good reason that not everyone has a job or at least a good paying job. Want to know why? Because it is not possible. Employees who all got paid high salaries, would not in turn spend that money the same way they earned it. Every company would be losing money.

There is a specific reason that one employee gets a large amount of money at one company, because that company is doing well and another employee makes almost nothing, because that company is about to fold etc. etc.

Know for a fact that if you are making good money, there are tons of employees that are not and that is the way it should be. It motivates people to learn and better themselves and stand out from the rest of the employee pool.

Your comment about "law suit here?" is at least part of the reason companies opt to go overseas...insurance against frivolous suits add to the cost of doing business ....I mean besides ridiculous executive pay/perks.

Blame my frivoluos mentality (I know you are not saying this), and you are right people like me are the reason brands have to cut cost, but not for suits, its simpler white brands produced in the end of the world are cheaper and cheap people like me get them.

Why would I pay 3 bucks for 300 g of a cereal if I can get 1 kg for 99 cents just without a tiger in the box.

They need to cut cost like expensive first world labor to mantain the margins

This is sad, yet it's interesting as well.

But, coming from an engineer who works in manufacturing and is very familiar with FDA regs and GMP.... there could be major consequences for a stunt like this!

I have one of the original Twinkies before Hostess shut down and got re-opened in my freezer.

Who knows, someone might pay me money for it someday.

It sucks when people loose their jobs. But let's be serious. Kelloggs does not exist to employ people. They exist to make money, namely for their shareholders. And in, what to me seems like, a growing health conscious market, how else will you be able to compete and sell your garbage food? They had no choice but to move the plant to a cheaper labour market.

Again, not that I agree with it or that I think it's EH OH KAY that people lose their jobs. But that's how a capitalist economy works.

I suggest we move away from this # and try a better styled economy to avoid such things in the future anyways.

thought the same exact thing. If they only wrote this on one bag like they're alluding, and I bought that one..., their message would never have been seen by anyone.

I say sell it on Ebay and send the money to the people who signed the bag. They are going to need it.


Imagine working somewhere for 20+ years and then one day you watch the last bag come off the conveyor belt. You hear the machines shut down for the last time. You and your coworkers gather around the last bag of serial you and them will make at a place you have spent a lifetime at.

I bet that was an emotional moment when they all said their goodbyes and signed that bag. Yeah, its a sad story no matter how you slice it.

Shame. Some of the jobs will go to Belleville, Ontario according to Kellogg's, and the rest will go to China, to their Yihai Kerry joint venture. They're said to be expanding a major new facility in Rayong, Thailand for cereal and snack food production, which will certainly be closing additional Canadian plants then.

Welcome to the global free market.


Consumers are just as guilty.
People complain about these things all the time without actually doing anything to change the way things are going.
Locals b**ch and whine about a new corporate store opening and all the people who will be put out of business, but they all go and shop there the moment it opens.

Maybe if people actually stood by their principles and stopped expecting everyone else to do things for them things would not be as bad as they are? People obviously choose to support these corporations instead of small local businesses, and they are to blame.
