May I ask what the job market is like at the moment in the US? I know I can get facts and figures from the net, but it would be good to hear from real Americans on that.
In the UK, jobs are still hard to come by. Austerity measures are not working, causing the double dip recession. Manufacturing still being outsourced to China etc. Construction industry is not moving. Looks like more of the same for 2013. We should be in recovery by now.
Although I have not seen Hostess products in the UK, I am aware of some of the brands from US TV. Whatever the real reasons behind bankruptcy of that company, it's always alarming to see that amount of people lose their jobs.
