Submission + - Hostess is Going Out of Business (wsj.com) 2

beerdragoon writes: It is the end of an era. Hostess Brands Inc, the maker of the Twinkie, is going out of business. Apparently unable to negotiate a contract with it's 18,500+ employees, the company has decided to halt all manufacturing and close it's doors for good. If you are one of the people that still eats Twinkies, HoHos or DingDongs then you might want to hit your local convenience store and stock up now!

      I don't deny that there is union abuse, and that reforms are needed. But without unions, the general workplace might well be as dangerous as the family farm and the wages more like the third world.
