You are unable to link the resulting company failures and problems with the inputs.

Hostess' unions would not let Twinkies be shipped in the same trucks with bread, etc. Union contracts prohibited cost savings, like many union contracts do, they protect jobs at the expense of remaining competitive in the marketplace. Ultimately, companies have to declare bankruptcy to get out from under onerous union contracts.

Blame Hostess' management, but its really the bakers union that lost all the jobs in this iteration of bankruptcy.
