What good will it do for people to stress over something they can't control? Does anyone actually think Mueller gives a rats ass what hardships of not re-establishing what job sthat were lost to the fire will do to this near ghost town now? They proved that at contract time. I mean $.50 raise over the next 5 years. Thats a whopping 10 cents a year. And worse still, the insurance premium doubled for a family of 2. It was $12.00 per week. In january "2012" it went to $24.00 per week. Not to mention the deductibles, co-pays and overall out of pocket expenses more than doubled. That 5 year period of raises done been eat the hell up with mueller alone. And gas is going to climb til?

Then just last week, some of the "CORPERATE" bigwigs was bragging to distribution employees that the distribution made a profit of 133 million dollars just the last quarter. That is 133 million in 3 quick months. And they couldn't afford but 10 cents a year raise to the ones busting their asses for them to stuff their pockets bigger and bigger. They should have remembered that maybe had they showed the people the appreciation of jobs well done by acting like they know if you treat your employees fair, then they would gladly give 110%.Their greed is exactly why cant keep people in distribution. When a company is so greedy that they humiliate themselves with such a joke of a contract. They will never have any concerns when it comes to employees. They'll choke on all that green one day, and sooner than they know.

Mueller is more a big joke than anything. Yes they have a truckers union out there instead of a steel mills union. A truckers union in a metals factory, is as bad for employees as the company is for itself. With the union already on the companies side, its even sweeter cause mueller buys what little don't agree with co.

Manufacturing makes the money and the profit distribution don't make crap for the company. They are actually a liability they add extra cost to the product selling. With all the accidents distribution has it brings new meaning to liability.

I have to pay $400/month for insurance coverage for two of us ... plus we have a $2000 deductible to meet each year, plus a $30 copay, and then we get up to ... up to an 80/20 split. The prescrip plan is layered at $10/$35/$55. I've not seen a raise these past 4 years.

The fire brought sudden heartache to myself and my family. The unemployment was so scarse, that I feared we would whind up on the street... The good thing is that I finally got a job where team work truly exist, a clean secure facility, great pay with yearly raises and bonuses! Did I mention the awesome Insurance with dental, vision, and life insurance at a very low weekly deduction? The co-pays are 15/30/60. Sweet!!! Thank you GOD for allowing me to move on to better things due to this tragedy! I only pray that those which lost there jobs find something better! GOD bless!
