Do you want the Twinkie to live on?

Just because Hostess might be going away doesn't necessarily mean that Twinkies will follow (or, for that matter, Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, Wonder Bread and other childhood favorites).

In fact, all the media attention and the Twinkie and Ho Ho hoarding have only served to make the Hostess products plenty attractive to a buyer looking for a sweet deal, according to John Pottow, a University of Michigan Law School professor who specializes in bankruptcy.

    Those workers can get another job.
    It should be considered sabotage when a crew goes on strike and destroys a company.


    I mean think about it. what are they fighting for?
    what do they have now?
    a need to go find another job. Right?

    They got hired and they liked the job.

    no one put the workers in a cage and brought them to the hostess plant.
    They showed up on free will.

    Unions need to be banned until this recession is over.

    We would all fare a lot better by reading the ingredients etc, of what we eat! At least a little more common sense might help in making the US loose its #1 ranking in obesity and all that comes with it! I never had a Twinkie, btw!

    I really don't care either way. Twinkines are good, but they aren't as great as every one says they are. It is just the nostalgia of them more than the taste. And..the off brand ones taste just the same.

    it's a scam by the owners to get rid of the unions.

    The Bakers Union is the bad people in this case. 5000 greedy union people lost 18000 jobs. The owners gave the workers a chance to stop this for happening. The owner said he would not close the company (and put 18000 people out of work) if they would take that small pay cut. Blame the 5000 greedy people that join unions. Now in this bad economy of Obama's that will be out of work for a long time. ( Don't blame Bush because it has been 4 years of Obama)

    You Take a job that pays you $11.00 an hour with certain benefits. Don't come back demanding more money and benefits later. You knew what the pay and benefits were when you took the job.

    The UNIONS need to go.... UNIONS are killing this country. UNIONS are bad. I live in a Right to Work State and we do not have the problems like they have in states that have UNIONS.

    Your lack of understanding of this case is not really surprising. Try reading the real story of how the owners were greedy thugs and gave themselves huge raises while crying poor.

    I don't NOT want it to live on, but I don't really care if it does or doesn't. It was never one of my favorites, due to the texture. And the creme filling was way too sweet for my tastes. In a free market society, products come, and products go.

    Any attempt to artificially keep the Twinky alive will throw off the natural balance of capitalism.

    Well, kind of/sort of. I honestly do not care about the Twinkie or any of the Hostess products. I care more about the 18,500 people who just lost their jobs.
    I didn't like Twinkies anyway because they had beef fat in them. :p
