The latest is that Hostess and the union failed to reach an agreement.
So the judge has given Hostess the green light to begin liquidation of the brands.

Sad that only 30% of Hostess employess were union members, but that minority of the workers, following blindly what the union bosses dictated, will cause the loss of jobs for between 12,000 and 16,000 empoyees.

I wonder how many of the union bosses will be jobless this Christmas?

16k out of work? No problem. Our savior, Obama won again. Those few more on welfare programs is no big deal. That is chump change. Unions will complete the already dying of this country.
