And, no more Hostess Cupcakes either! Although it sounds like the Unions were to blame for this one (how stupid to lose all those jobs rather than take a very small pay cut for 1 year.) As I keep saying, it is time for unions to vanish from the U.S. of A.

Ah, Micahael, free enterprise is still alive in this country. For how long, no one knows.

I just read a story about one of Hostess's accountants who was laid off earlier. He went arounf and bought up 16+ cases of twinkies and is selling them on the internet at some outrages price. He hopes he will be able to sell his whole supply out at the inflated prices as that would give him some breathing room in his unemployment status.

O yes, he knows he has to get them sold before their "use by" date because contrary to the common folk tale that they have an unlimited shelf life because of all the chenmicals, they do go bad after a month or so after the use by day.

Yes there are, Lina. But like almost everything else in socialist countries you are a forced member, paying dues to an organization that performs no really useful service for you.

Of course, that is the same as Uniuon shops here in the US.

Here's another little idea to ponder. You know all those very high paid (millions of $s per year) news anchors? They all have their own agents negotiating their contracts with the networks. They still, have to be members of the Union to hold their jobs.

Years ago, when I was advertising my servies on radio in my area, I was told that if I continued to advertise and appear as my own spokesperson, I would have to join the union.
