Interview with a Hostess worker
Why did you support the decision to go on strike?
Because there was no reason to keep the job. My opinion is that I'm better off looking for work and fighting to keep Wonder Bread in a union rather than getting what they offered us and spending the next five years in poverty. I would be guaranteed a 5 percent pay cut every year, and go from $16.12 to $11.26 an hour. It's easy to say, "Well, no, you should just fight to keep the job." The job I had is a wonderful job, and it will be hard to replace. The other one I could have been getting is not. There is a Walmart eight blocks from my house. I can work there. People forget we have already been made these exact same promises by these exact same people. They lied then. Why would we believe it this time? I have a total lack of confidence and faith in these owners.
