Twinkies? Ding dongs? White Powder? God, the street slang you kids are using for your drugs is getting ridiculous. Back in my day, you just had to huff a can of Dulux Magnolia paint and that'd do you for the night.
The employees have already been through this before. They couldn't afford to lose 8% of their wages. Hostess was sinking because they made a shitty product. Maybe if they also had spent some of their precious profits developing a less wretched thing to eat than a twinkie, maybe they wouldn't be in the coffin.
Do you seriously think the employees were trying to drive Hostess out of business when they depended on that company for their livlihoods?
