Hostess is going out of business! No more twinkies or wonder bread. Maybe the world will end next month. :(

I am sorry that Hostess is going out of business, but it is the workers fault. They refused to take a cut in pay and benefits. Well, guess what? Now they have no income at all. The company forewarned them that if they didn't agree to the cuts, that they would go out of business. So, the workers cannot blame anyone but themselves!!!

I don't often but I'll be sad that I can't. I can't remember the last time I had one but I'm going to get one later today :)

I read that the company hadn't been paying their pensions for a year and then tried to cut wages and benefits.

It is sad. I would have rather take a pay cut than totally lose my job..

As for buying their products, no..$5 for a box of ho-ho's was my cut off point. My mom will probably cry though, cuz she loves them, LOL.
