Maybe they're betting they can get away with paying a terrible salary to people that have a hard time finding a job due to their disability. It's a business model that's worked well at Goodwill
We're talking about compensation in this comment thread. Welcome.
While you're at it, ditch this "high deductible" scam and get some real health insurance
While the miser is merely a capitalist gone mad, the capitalist is a rational miser.

It's much more than just "a cut"
The contract Hostess wants to impose on BCTGM workers includes:
-- An immediate 8 percent wage cut.
-- Shifting 20 percent more of health care costs onto the workers (for some workers, this would mean an increased cost of $240 a month for medical insurance).
-- Eliminating retiree Medigap insurance, which covers gaps in Medicare.
-- Eliminating Pension Supplement to pay health and funeral costs.
-- Closing an undisclosed 10 to 12 plants.
-- Eliminating the eight-hour day, which would mean no time-and-a-half pay after eight hours per day.

"Megaupload's Kim Dotcom, a willfully tacky fat guy with a baby face and a vanity license plate that says "guilty," has styled himself as a kind of comic villain, a composite of everything people love to hate. He effectively serves as empire's face of piracy: an overweight nouveau-riche wannabe hacker who finally gets his comeuppance through the macho justice of Uncle Sam. It's so easy to hate Kim Dotcom that you almost forget that the US convinced the New Zealand government to send in an assault brigade, bereft of a valid warrant but outfitted with automatic weapons and helicopters, to arrest a Finnish citizen at the demand of Hollywood studios. If Kim Dotcom didn't exist, the FBI, with the help of the MPAA, would have invented him."
Political activists love to get together and drink and argue, in my experience
