    Well, I am eating mine with satisfaction.... Too bad they won't ever be the same. Until another company buys them up and keeps making them.

    Never Forget...

    I was lucky enough to get the last 2 Twinkies (boxes) and cupcakes in a convenience store this afternoon up here in Kaysville.

    In the store last night all the Twinkies and Hostess stuff was gone. I guess people are stocking up.
    Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.

    You don't have to go home, but there's no need to stay here.

    Unions: Let's go on strike!
    Hostess: If we stop production we'll have to close.
    Unions: Pay us more!
    Hostess: We're closed now.
    Unions: Can they do that?

    Replace "Hostess" with "GM" or "Ford" for another wonderful illustration of what unions can do for America.


    Unions are the reason why corporate America outsources their labor overseas. Don't like your Nike's made in some sweatshop in China? Then just say NO to Unions.

    Never forget: a one-dimensional viewpoint is never a good approximation of reality when human factors are involved. Unions are responsible for many of the benefits we all enjoy today in the workplace (things like fair wage structures, paid holidays, humane work hours, and so on).

    For the education-minded, another view of what happened at Hostess:

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/1...ostess-Bankery

    Excerpt:

    When I received my first paycheck from then Interstate Bakeries in 1999 it had a memo stapled to it. The memo announced that Wonder had just had the most productive quarter in baking history. It stated that the health of the company and brand had never been better. The break room was buzzing with excitement because our contract was soon to be up for renegotiation and this would surely mean smooth sailing. A few weeks later we got the 'oops' letter. Turns out it was all an 'accounting' error and the company was failing miserably.

    Conveniently though, CEO Charles Sullivan and the board managed to sell their stock before word got out about the bad news. No jail time of course. In fact, Sullivan was brought back as a consultant after his resignation. Enron happened a few years later and at the bakery we were amazed how much attention they got compared to us.

    I agree unions have had a place in improving the wages and work place. But have they run their course?

    KEY WORD: "...were..."


    And as a side note - From the attached excerpt - How does the company go from the best they ever have to bankrupt by just a simple little clerical oopsie? I'm calling BS on that excerpt. Over-dramatize much?
