Daily Kos: Giving Thanks for Hostess Workers by Richard Trumka


http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/11/18/1162645/-Giving-Thanks-for-Hostess-Workers




This is the new American story, but someone finally stood up and said, “Stop!”

Pundits should be applauding the Bakery Workers of Hostess Brands for standing up to Wall Street interests and standing for decent working standards and the middle class.

The truth is that the Bain-style vulture capitalists invested in Hostess to profit not by making quality products, but by bleeding the company of every dollar before discarding it.

They’re doing it because they can, because that’s what Wall Street speculators do when they get their hands into a company’s till.

FULL story at link.
