The workers are the victims Ben. They wrongly relied on the poor advice of their leaders. When a company dies no one wins. And save your breath quoting what the CEO salary or company profits were. If both the owners and employees wanted to be open they would be open. To blame politicians is to give them more power than they are due. They didn't create Ormet and it's out of their power to save it.

As I read your comments about how the union (ormet employees) are to blame, it makes me wonder , why would the employees want the plant to close? I also wonder how much salary the top executives of ormet took home over the last 25 years? How much did Mr. Boyle make during his reign of terror? I also wonder how much the top executives at AEP took home?

So Cera and Gentile get a pass because they sit down with these workers and say I feel your pain? Its about time these reps stood for something isnt it? Obviously they cannot tell the truth to these guys since that would be biting the hands that feed them power.

The union drove the metal industry out...along with negligent CEOs and and expensive energy brought on by the union's choice for President. Petition another union to buy the plant, I don't want to bail it out....better yet, start your own company...

I wonder how many miners and other steel workers lost their insurance? It's a shame...but what do you think is going to happen when the company you worked for is bankrupt...maybe a raise?

Tsk,tsk turley - Not a compassionate conservative? wink wink Funny how people get what the voted for. The Conservatives should run hundreds of 10 second commercials nationally. Just have the word Obamacare on the screen and 5 seconds into the commercial have the voice over say, "Now do you understand why conservatives fought against Obamacare?" fade out.

Luckily, thanks to the messiah that most of them voted for, they can BUY obamacare (if Barry ever figures out the glitches!)....for about what their former employer used to pay!!!....of course, obama promised you job security too, didnt he???.....another wise investment by the working man in the democratic party!
