Why should there be assistance for Whirlpool employees are they better than other laid off/fired factory workers.
In my eyes these workers should have planned for something like this while they were employed. I don't think that whirlpool owes them anymore than a last paycheck..What am I missing???

A brain? Let me guess, you got laid off or fired from your job because you were too lazy or stupid to do it right?

I thought NAFTA, FNT-China was supposed to help the US. That's what our politicians said when they were trying to get them in. Both parties said that.

Surely US politicians don't lie do they? They must have just made an honest mistake.
