$35k including overtime? And $10k less than he was making before?

Yeah, I can see why they'd walk out. If you think a job is so sacred that you should never give it up at any cost, you're going to get screwed by this economy.

Again, Hostess was making $2.5billion in sales.

Typically labor cost is 30-40% - for 18,500 workers that's about $45k per employee (base), at the low end.

Teamsters workers were getting $18 - $19 per hour, or about $39k.

Apparently bakers union workers made significantly less than that if it took overtime to get $35k.

Bad management. Let the zombie die.
