An American food company announced its financial failure

The American food company Hostess and representatives of its workers have agreed to enter negotiations. Hostess announced its financial failure this week. It suspended production and entered a court process to end operations permanently and deal with its debts. Hostess acted after workers began to strike two weeks ago to protest plans for cuts in retirement pay, health care and other benefits. Monday, a bankruptcy court judge in the state of New York urged Hostess to try to find a different solution through talks with labor union officials. 18,000 workers would lose their jobs if Hostess closes. The company opened in 1930. It makes bread and sweet baked goods including its famed Twinkies.

Perfect, I think!

I don't think that I've ever eaten a Twinkie, but they are immensely well-known.

Thank you.

If I have a chance to eat it, I will try.
