I guess we should all just keep our mouths shut...work for pennies...clean the masters car....polish the masters shoes...run the masters errands...work seven days a week, 16 hours a day...never get a vacation...etc.etc.etc.....do you right wing, union hating idiots not understand that if we, as normal everyday working class people lose our voices, we are nothing but slaves to the rich. Do you believe for one minute without labor laws and unions to protect the working people that our CEO's and business owners would not take full advantage of us. YOU MUST BE CRAZY or just in denial. Keep fighting against the only things that protect some of you idiots and you might just get what you've been wishing for. FOOLS!!!

You dumb ass, that is exactly why nothing is made here and companies are leaving every day. Brought home 225.00 in 2 weeks in 1970 and had new cars, now 1400.00 every 2 weeks and can't afford a new car. Unions destroyed this country!

unions can be a good thing but they are abusing it! Now instead of a pay cut which tons of company's are having to do right now because of Obama care they are all unemployed! Oh well have fun with that... except they probably will since they can just draw unemployment now! Now are you seeing the problem?

Awww. How will the ky state fair survive?! It is just unamerican that you can't get your preferred junk food battered and deep fried. After all, you should be able to eat as badly as you want, carry no health insurance, then pass the bill to taxpayers when you have a heart attack and can't afford the medical bills, right? Isn't that the conservative American way?

And incidentally, this is their SECOND bankruptcy. They did a restructuring one in 2004 (gasp! Bush years!!!). It seems the brand was on its way out- the bakers strike was just the Twinkie that broke the Carmel's back.

As our society becomes more health conscious- expect other junk food manufacturing to suffer as well. Especially in an age where parents are loath to give their kids (who are already obese) any additionally sugary, fat laden snacks.

its not "unions".it is the greedy ceo's and corporate suits that want to raise prices and lower wages.why does nike,and many other companies use foreign labor?lower wages means higher profit for the bosses.hostess will shut down<using unions as a excuse>then relocate overseas maybe under a new name.then make the same product,pay a lower wage,and ship it here for us to consume.we will buy it and not say a word,just watch the millions in walmarts buying chinese junk that used to be manufactred here.even the walmart employees are getting fed up.many work daily and have no medical,retirement and live on the edge of poverty.some have to utilize food stamps to help their kids,while the ceo's and board of directors enjoy the profits of the largest private retailer in the world.

Who is it that demands low prices? Consumers! That's right you and I. Consumers in search of low priced goods, forced companies such as RCA, Mattel, etc. to seek out lower cost labor options in order to compete with the demand of cheaper prices.

You can buy a tv cheaper now that they are imported from overseas, than you could in 1975 when they were made right here in the USA.

Face it, this beast was created by all of us!

Both companies pay minimum wage, who cares!!! By the way, I looked this up and it cant be found anywhere, you posted this at 3 am, wow you must be really connected. If you cowards was not such management sucks and would stand up to big corporations instead of getting on your knees, you would have something in this suck hole of a place.

I bet your the product of a first cousin relationship. That is the only reason that you can explain being as stupid as you sound. BUST THE UNIONS and SAVE AMERICA!

/Sarcasm: Yes! Bust the unions and kneel at the feet of your employer! You are lucky to have a job! Now kiss the ring of your manager and accept whatever pay and conditions they want to give you! They are your masters now- and they won't accept any lip, criticism or dissent. Who cares about freedom from having a business treat you unfairly? You give up all your rights to work for a business!
