Joshua Bolten Says Tax Overhaul Good For Whole Economy

Hostess Brands Inc., feeling flush after last month’s tax overhaul, will offer bonuses to workers -- including free snacks.

The company, which makes Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Ho Hos, is providing its employees one-time payments of $1,250 -- with $750 in cash and $500 in the form of a 401(k) contribution. In taking the step, Hostess cited last month’s tax legislation, which slashed the rate for U.S. corporations.
