The Union won I hope they are happy. I didn't wand to win no job and no health care coverge. I hate to tell them but it is every dog for themselves now days. Yes they won alright. I worked everyday of the strike and I'd do it again. I hope they are right but what if they aren't? What if no one buys the plants and we don't go back to work. Yes they won!!!!

Take a look at that post & comment section from a couple of years ago by Hostess workers,(union employees) and read their concerns about how the company is being run at that time. They are wondering how the company can still operate in a few years with all the waste that was going on.

They (union workers) could see this coming and had major concerns about how the company was being run back then. This was all about waste!

Now lets all try to come back to today....And lets see if we can still blame the union workers for the Hostess demise. If they saw this coming years ago with valid questions, how can they be held responsible today?

If you are a union hater it`s simple. Ignore the writing on the wall (then) and blame the unions. It`s what happens. But it was plain as the day was clear who was at fault. Not a strike that brought a company down. Try mismanagement....
