I really do think it's time for those Hostess workers to get back to work.
They are faced with two choices... Go back to work with cut wages, or lose their job and pay check, all together. Less money is better than zero....
That said.....This guy would be very upset right now

I feel bad for the employees who just want to work their shift and earn the wage.
The Union and the Union bosses may want one thing but I doubt all the employees are on board.
Who the hell would throw away long term good jobs for so many people over the chance to temporarily bump your pay now?
Hostess is hardly a sweat shop.

Some creditors question Hostess pay raises approved in late July.

Maybe if the lazy blankety-blanks who sit on their backsides all day doing nothing didn't take so much the company could make a profit.
But sure blame it on the people making 10 bucks an hour working their butts off.
