I don't believe I ever ate a Twinkie or any of the other products produced by the Hostess Factories. Thats probably just as well because I am by nature a sweettooth. It is a shame to put about 18,000 people out of work because of greed. That seems to be the problem. The Baker's Union will not settle for a wage offered by the company, so its strike time. Now maybe the Hostess Company needs more money, or maybe they have some problems they could not solve in the manufacturing process. The problem is, the Union will not pay for the unemployment checks of the other workers, so the burden falls on the taxpayer. Ho hum. here we go again. Since Twinkies are now selling for up to five thousand dollars due to scarcity, I probably will never taste one. Lets give em' a farewell Ding Dong.
