Organizers of the January 21 Women's March in Cincinnati, where thousands came out to demonstrate against the Trump administration, as well as policies and rhetoric put forth during the election, are continuing the momentum with a strike and rally Wednesday.

Hostess says it will permanently close three of its bakeries, including Cincinnati, because of an ongoing national strike. One hundred fifty two people work at the Cincinnati location. All will lose their jobs.

Reportedly union workers walked off the job after a new contract imposed cuts in wages and benefits.   Hostess says the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union strike was preventing the facilities from producing and delivering products.
