Striking because they didn't want a pay cut just shows that they don't understand how the economy works. The company didn't try to force a pay cut on them because the big wigs wanted more money in their pocket. They were getting a pay cut because the entire company can't afford to pay them the same wage due to falling revenue. If the company can't afford to pay them at the same rate, what is is supposed to do? Pay them pretend-money?
Oh, you know, they could have started cutting from the top to bottom instead of the other way around.
But these 18,000+ people are better off not working is such a disgrace for a company. So long Hostess, no one will miss you.
