    Twinkies are coming back Union Free this summer with 200 employees and plans to add another 100 more at a later date. When Hostess closed it doors in 2012 there where 18,000 people employed.

    A Wall Street Journal article says that they will reopen four bakeries and plan to eventually hire 1,500 workers--union free.

    I can see another NLRB law suit in the making.

    The NLRB needs to move to Russia where they belong.

    Got to remember the union rules Hostess was working under.
    Like different trucks, loaders, drivers, for each product.
    Now the new company can make twinkies and other products and put them all in the same truck.

    It will be interesting to see if 1,500 non-union workers can do the same job as 18,000 union workers.
