But the little ppl lose their jobs, and the hedgefund rich guys sell the company by the recipe and walk away even richer.
Certainly someone (or a combination of someones) will have to fill that void. Some Hostess products will resurface, some won't. Some all-new products will surface, some existing products will see an increase in sales. And someone will have to produce these goods. Like the PP who said her husband is on OT now as he works for a competitor. It's the nature of the World. Someone's heartbreak will be to someone else's benefit.
