BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
More than nine years. That's how long Roger Graham worked for Hostess in Birmingham.
But within a matter of minutes Friday morning he no longer had a job.
"About 10 o'clock this morning about half way through the shift boss called us by text and told us wind it down and go home because the company was out of business," said Graham.
Graham knew about the nationwide strike but was told by his managers that employees at the Birmingham location would be fine.
"Our union, we voted to accept the concessions: eight percent pay decrease, insurance went up to $50 a week and we thought we were in good shape," Graham said.
He said when he arrived back at the factory after hearing the news there were no managers around, only employees who were trying to find the same answers.
"Just the route drivers coming in, parking their trucks," said Graham.
Graham's wife says he's always been the bread winner and with a 15-year-old daughter in high school the family said times are going to be even more challenging.
"We had been built up to believe we were going to stay on and it just, it was bad. You don't know what to think, what you're going to do next as bad as the economy is today," said Graham.
Graham said he doesn't even know if he's going to get a paycheck next week. He was told his insurance will last until the end of this month.
Come Monday, he said he will start filling out applications for unemployment.
