(Campaign for America's Future) -- You’ve probably heard that Hostess is closing down and putting more than 18,000 people out of work because greedy unions asked for too much. It’s a lie. Ask yourself this: are the problems in our economy because working people get too much, or too little? And if this company can get away with driving down wages and cutting benefits, what will happen to your wages and benefits?
Last week Hostess shocked the country with an announcement, they were shutting the company down and said they were doing this because the union representing their employees would not make concessions. The corporate right jumped on the story, explaining to the public that the problem with our economy is unions that help working people get raises, not to mention the unthinkable idea that people should get pensions.
