This would be a godsend for my family since my husband was laid off recently from Hostess. The company texted him his pink slip on Nov 16th. Now we are having issues with the company dealing with the Unemployment office. So he has been without any kind of pay thanks in part to thoughtlessness of the Bakers Union and the top management that decided to give themselves a pay raise of 80 - 300% after coming out the last bankruptcy.
