The once beleaguered snack cake maker is trying to make its comeback. How did it get here?
Handling the Twinkie empire hasn't been a piece of cake.
Twinkie bakers follow in the footsteps of foundry workers, baggage handlers, and others, as restructured companies hire employees back at lower wages.
Last-ditch talks to save the Hostess company from liquidation have failed. The Twinkie maker will likely begin the (legal) winding down process to shut everything down and sell off remaining brands and assets.
Hostess Brands may not be dead after all. The company's management and workers will be back at the bargaining table one last time today to try and avoid liquidating the company. A private mediation will take place behind closed doors.
Hostess will hold talks with its bakery workers union to try to avoid the company being shut down. Bad news for people who may have bid thousands of dollars on Twinkies.
