There have been a number of stories in recent days implying that the demise of Hostess was somehow the result of unreasonable demands from workers. Here, however, are a couple of stories that debunk that narrative.
In the first (“No cupcake: Workers turn down bad deal from Hostess”) , Dean Baker at the Center on Economic and Policy Research points out that the management team with whom the workers were attempting to negotiate were basically a bunch of predatory knuckleheads.
In the second (“Hostess blames union for bankruptcy after tripling CEO’s pay”) , the folks at Think Progress provide more disturbing details.
