they want to take us back to the 1900s where you only have to pay an employee a nickel, and have them die on the job, so they can kill off someone else's family member, so 3 white guys can be rich.

I happened to be at Sams and they had a lot of the real Hostess Twinkies on the shelf.

Unions rules killed the company.
Drivers were not allowed to load or help load their own trucks. Bread products had to be loaded on trucks by one union and and cake products had to be loaded by a different union. Even if both products were being delivered to the same locations bread products had to be delivered by bread trucks and cake products had to be delivered by a second truck. That translates in to two trucks instead of one, two dockworkers instead of one and two ramp spaces instead of one, twice as much fuel and so on.
Do you not read anybody elses posts? If you read back a couple of pages Johnnycanuk posted a news article explaining what happened......it's called venture capitalism.
Quote from arrticle:
Hostess was smashed by vulture capitalists — “a management team that,” in the words of economist Dean Baker, “shows little competence and is rapidly stuffing its pockets at the company’s expense.”
Essentially that's what unions do. Union shops won't allow you to change a simple light bulb in your own work area if it goes out - you have to put in a request. Meaning no work gets done until they show up.
The American labor movement has consistently demonstrated its devotion to the public interest. It is, and has been, good for all America. Those who would destroy or further limit the rights of organized labor--those who cripple collective bargaining or prevent organization of the unorganized--do a disservice to the cause of democracy."
