They are not allowed by their contract to strike so they walked off their jobs in a show of support for workers at Hostess facilities that are allowed to strike. (Scott Olson/Getty Images)

The Associated Press reports that Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, is going out of business and 18,500 workers will be laid off in the process. Earlier this week, Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands Inc. warned workers who were striking that it would file a motion to cease operations if they didn't come back to work by Thursday at 5 p.m. We're remembering Hostess in these photos, courtesy of Getty Images.
