    The word is "bagel" not "pagel." You're breaking the phrase in the wrong place. It's a hard bread roll that is shaped like a ring. It's a circle of bread. They are particularly good with garlic, onion, sesame and poppy seeds on them, toasted and spread with cream cheese.

    The Teamsters are a very powerful labor union in the US. You could google them for more information.
