I don't fault the company for shutting down, I fault the bakers union for being such hard headed idiots that they refused to accept a concessions package that every other union at Hostess, even the Teamsters, had accepted, thus flushing all their jobs down the crapper. Hell, in some places the other unions, including the Teamsters, were crossing the bakers' picket lines, and Teamsters NEVER do that, so that oughta tell you the bakers were wrong. I don't celebrate the loss of jobs, but I can't blame the company for folding their tents. I blame the bakers for their obstinacy and greed and their "hooray for me and eff you" attitude towards fellow union members who were willing to take cuts to save their jobs.
