More Laura Clawson on Hostess

Laura Clawson of the Daily Kos has written another piece on the Hostess plant closures.  This time she analyzes the situation with a focus on mismanagement of the company.  She also notes that income inequality will have a long term negative impact on the middle and working classes.  Many will suffer so a few can prosper.

Clawson ends her article with these words: “This is growing economic inequality in action, and standing for these workers’ pensions—even if you don’t have one yourself—is fighting an economy of hedge funds and for the top one percent.”  Sadly, we’ve seen too many times that working people have no sense of solidarity.  Until more workers wake up, the Hostess story will be repeated again and again.
