I tried to find a pay rate for Hostess employees, seems the right wingers thought they were getting $30/hr and the left wingers said of course they should strike, but no hint at all of what the actual wages were for union employees. It could have been $10/hr I don't know. I think it comes down to Obamacare, employers are being forced to subsidize uninsured people and are closing doors before it's implemented. Perhaps once Hostess goes through receivorship they'll re-open sans union?
