I guess we should care because a lot of people are now unemployed!! I guess nobody cares about the "regular" people who would like to continue to support their families.

First, learn how to spell you moron.
Second, Are you really that stupid that you want all the companies
to shut their doors, because they are owned by someone who was successful and therefore has money? God help America with idiots like you voting.

Anyone who thinks 18,000 people losing their jobs is a good thing is not in their right mind. I feel sorry for the hardworking men and women who will lose their jobs.

I don't understand why they don't get some illegal workers like the meat industry. Hostess is too expensive, almost $4 a box where I live. Illegals will do the jobs cheaper and not want health insurance. Then it would only cost about $2 a box and my kids could eat more Twinkies.
