Okay 19 million dollars went to whirlpool during the bail out which I got a shaft from that and so did hard working americans.give me a break whirlppol leads the appliance industry in america a they are making millions and it looks like it to me that they want more bail out money.This company is a corparate company ryn by crooks who don't care about anybody but themselves.They wan't to go over seas and but there plants because they can hire cheap labor.Why pay and American worker 15-17 dollars an hour if they can go to china,mexico or any other 3rd world country so that they can hire cheap labor to make Appliances.Well corporate greed has hijack this great country and as long as Americans sit down and don't realize what these ass holes are doing to us we will have no middle class jobs to support our family.Corporations like whirlpool and others should give Americans back our tax payers bail out money and should be sued in court and be put out of business.
