"Union workers may permanently kill off the iconic Twinkie. Hostess Brands, Inc., the company that makes Twinkies, announced on Wednesday that it will ask a bankruptcy judge to allow it to shut down and sell off its assets as soon as November 20, if union workers do not end their strike by Thursday."

Obama has not yet saved the auto industry. GM is not all that profitable and may very well need either another bailout or file bankruptcy. Hostess is the victim of both Moochelle's endless harping on food that tastes good, and the greed of the unions. Besides, whoever asked the government to step in to the Hosstess problem? NO one I know of.

Came across a deliious little tidbit about Hostess.
Seems one of th owners is none other than former House majority leader Dick Gephardt, D-Missouri.
Yes, a Democrat threatened the union with liquidation of the company unless they took a paycut.
Seems he already bailed the company out once.

d Smith, a Chicago Alderman, took a look at the salary for Walmart CEO Michael Duke. Duke earns $35 million dollars a year. By contrast, a Walmart employee starting out in a Chicago Walmart will earn $8.75 an hour, with a gross salary of $13,650.00 a year. According to ABC News, Alderman Smith decided to crunch these numbers. Calculating Michael Duke’s work week at 40 hours, Smith calculated the hourly wage of CEO Michael Duke. It came out to $16,826.92. In one hour, he earned more than one of his workers does in a year.

The Ceo's salary is determined by the Board of Dierctors. Personally I don't care what CEO's make, I am not an envious person.
