What Saved Hostess And Twinkies: Automation And Firing 95% Of The Union Workforce


We can all agree that Twinkies are great, and our country breathed a collective sigh of relief when it was announced that they were back for good. What we didn't think about at the time was, at what cost?

It's all fun and games until you have to survive the zombie apocalypse without your Twinkies.
