    I remember New Coke BTW
    Actually, in consumer taste tests, people liked new coke better than original.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's an amazing thing the left does, blame people years ago for current things. Be it Hostess, or be it 'Bush's Fault!'

    It's like living in the present scares them or something.

    You mean like, just three short years ago, in 2009, when the union made concessions of over a hundred million dollars in labor saving costs to the company and the thousands of union members that lost their jobs?

    Think twice? It seems as though they did and decided not to be played again.

    Outrageous demands? You mean like pensions, so they don't have to depend on SS for their retirement?

    The workers will survive, they'll find jobs and management will walk away with their usual 'golden parachute'.

    Yeah, here's a couple of articles on it.

    But it's much more fun for the usual suspects typical union bashing, cut workers pay/benefits to bare minimum, then bash again when they don't make enough money to pay federal income tax or don't have enough retirement so that they have to survive on SS.

    Twinkies eBay: Hostess Treats On Sale For $200,000 Amid Twinkie-pocalypse Fears

    While it will be possible to buy Hostess treats from stores for "a few more days" until already baked products run out, the inevitable -- and wildly inflated -- "black market" of Hostess products has already reared its costly head on the Interwebs in preparation for the impending Twinkie-pocalypse.

    One eBay seller is auctioning off a full box of Twinkies at a starting (and staggering) price of $200,000 (shipping included):


    Twinkies eBay: Hostess Treats On Sale For $200,000 Amid Twinkie-pocalypse Fears


    iLOL

    From what I have seen presently, a box ranges, with variances, from about $20.00 to $10,000,000.00.

    Because the above (a four year period ) doesn't support it at all.

    You done dancing yet?

    And obviously the worker was getting paid too much. $20 dollars and hour to make ****ing Twinkies. That is too much.

    That stat wouldn't have anything to do with modern technology or faster, more efficient machinery now would it?

    Exactly.

    Spot on. But reality will never set into the deep recesses of the minds of those that have an agenda.

    The Capitaliban myth that the rich create jobs is like saying that vampires create blood.
