    Conn. jobs at stake as Hostess ends its business



    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — As many as 200 jobs in Connecticut are on the line as Hostess Brands Inc. says it will go out of business.

    The company notified Connecticut earlier this week that layoffs are possible by mid-December.

    In Connecticut, Hostess jobs include drivers, mechanics, thrift store employees and others in Bridgeport, Cheshire, East Windsor, Norwich and Uncasville.

    Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, says it will lay off its 18,500 employees. It said a nationwide strike crippled its ability to make and deliver products, including Twinkies, Wonder Bread, Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's.

    The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union went on strike Nov. 9 to protest proposed wage and benefits cuts.

    Hostess suspended bakery operations at all its factories and said stores will remain open to sell already-baked products.end of story marker

    I feel sorry for all of those who are going to loose their job.
