Hostess is having trouble with the baker’s union, and it gave it a deadline—yesterday at 5:00 PM—to stop the strike.

Now, 18,500 workers will lose their jobs as Hostess closes its thirty three bakeries and 565 distribution centers nationwide.  The union was only 5,000 people, but it effected so much more.

Maybe, at one point in time, unions were useful in making sure things were fair and people were taken care of.  Now, it looks like they’re more likely to lose a lot of jobs as they try to negotiate better deals than the rest of us get.
