They're holding the Twinkie hostage.
People accuse labor unions of sending their employers into bankruptcy. The Hostess baker's unions took audacity to a new level: their employer already is in bankruptcy, for the second time since 2004, but they're striking to kill the deal that would prevent an exit. So Hostess is planning to liquidate, and 18,500 jobs will be lost instead of 627. Management can go on strike, too.
