Hostess Announces Layoffs Across State

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – The maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread has informed the state that 135 of its workers in Idaho may be laid off in the coming weeks. The Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy protection in January and has been working on a reorganization plan that involves layoffs and plant closings across the nation. The company earlier this month mailed notices to all of its 18,500 employees in the U.S. According to state records, a notice sent May 7 said the layoffs in Idaho could come by early July at facilities in Twin Falls, Boise, Caldwell, Chubbuck, Heyburn, Idaho Falls, Montpelier, Mountain Home, Nampa, Pocatello, and Rexburg.      Hostess spokesman Erik Halvorson says the company is issuing notices, as required by law, but the goal is still to emerge from bankruptcy. According to the notice up to nineteen people at the Twin Falls branch could be let go. Heyburn could see five people let go.
