The real story behind Hostess

Salon.com has a good summary of what really happened to Hostess; the title, “Vulture capitalism–not unions–killed Twinkies” summarizes it pretty well, but I thought this quote from a worker deserved repetition:

“Remember how I said I made $48,000 in 2005 and $34,000 last year? I would make $25,000 in five years if I took their offer. It will be hard to replace the job I had, but it will be easy to replace the job they were trying to give me.”
