Deafening Silence: Top Democrats Hush as Left-Wing Kellogg's Company Set to Replace American Union Workers
[Breitbart] House and Senate Democrats who have claimed to be champions for labor unions are silent as the Kellogg Company, whose largest shareholder is the left-wing W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is set to replace about 1,400 American union workers who have been on strike since October.

American union workers employed at Kellogg’s have been striking as of October 5, protesting what they say are grueling working conditions at plants in Battle Creek, Michigan; Omaha, Nebraska; Lancaster, Pennsylvania; and Memphis, Tennessee.
Grueling conditions at a cereal plant?
The workers and their union, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers’ International Union (BCTGM), allege that Kellogg’s executives have threatened to move manufacturing to Mexico in an effort to bust up their striking.

In October, a BCTGM union representative said Kellogg’s "continues to threaten to send additional jobs to Mexico if workers do not accept outrageous proposals that take away protections that workers have had for decades."

#3 They are not members of the Teacher or Civil Service unions so they are expendable

#4 Easier said than done. Any Union member who has any sort of dealing with this company will certainly display a gnarly stink eye towards them. Flat tires and all sorts of mischief.

#5 We have a in the Augusta GA area.
(Right to work state)
The line worker reviews a read like a Production Sweat Mill.

Devil advocate chiming in: Look at what you are paying now for corn flakes.

Now imagine union scale wages and demands factored in?

#7 I haven't bought cold cereal in over 30 years, after I read a lab report which found that rats were better nourished by the cardboard boxes containing the cereal than they were by the cereal itself.

#8 $5-6 per 12-oz box.

Thank you Brandon and Kommissars Powell and Yellen. We peasants are so grateful that it's only temporary.

#9 I stopped buying cold cereal years ago when it was priced the same as block cheese and cold cuts...

#10 Almost every morning I do have oatmeal, using rolled oats at 70 cents / lb.

#11 Bubba -- was the report written by a golden lab or chocolate lab? Because that's an old, old urban legend. Corn flakes may not be the best thing, but they're actually food.

#13 Kids need cereal. Lots of vitamins along with whole-grain carbs. The sugar's needed to induce them to actually eat it.

#14 Another case of union members pricing themselves out of their jobs. This is red on red. Actually, if you hire the Mexicans to work at jobs in Mexico then maybe they won't immigratecolonize here.

And, no, I don't believe that kids need Kellogg's sugar. When the kids get hungry, they'll eat and then it's up to the parents to make sure they eat something healthy. Give them toast and butter or oatmeal with raisins.

#15 Growing up we were not allowed to have any sugary cereal. "Too much sugar" Mom said. "It's not good for you." The only cold cereal we had was Corn Flakes. They were cheap but they don't stau crispy for long.

#16 Maybe they can get away with making cereal, but are the union truckers going to haul it?

That's when happens when cold milk meets cereal.

#18 My wife can't understand why I hate cold cereal. Too many years of that as breakfast. And it's all pretty bland without sugar. Don't like oatmeal either. Rather have nothing or an egg and a piece of bacon or sausage. Or hash browns with onion, green pepper, etc.

#20 Food has emotional resonances that only are logical from the inside. My siblings and I were picky eaters, so my father (the organic chemist) tarted up a crêpe recipe until it contained 100% of the US RDA except for fruits and vegetables. Mama’s housekeeper made up a big batch every two weeks, wrapped in tin foil and frozen in individual portions. We ate those six mornings a week. Sugary cereal is a special treat for me to this day. So are normal crêpes.
