Actually... Lubrizol is probably the best. $30+ hr and a batch operation. Which is really easy, operation wise. Unlike westlake, which is a really difficult and complex plant operationally speaking.

Consider your changes of getting sick by working at one of these plants and $30 an hour is much if your under 6 feet in the ground

Halo....obviously you don't work at a Calvert city plant. Certainly there are health risks by working around chemicals, but due to very strict EPA and OSHA standards, working at a plant is probably safer than working at your local road department.

My father worked at 3 or more Calvert City plants and is in his 80's now and worked in Calvert for at least 30 years and has had cancer 5 times since retiring at 62 years old . He has a complete medical check up every year so the cancer has been caught early so that it has been treatable every time but im sure this is not how he wanted to spend his retirement and if he had to choose again he would have found another line of work . The money is not worth it if when u retire your quality of life goes down because of fear of cancer !

wheres the proof that his cancer was caused by working in the plants. Yes we use carcinogens. Yes we use other hazardous material. As stated we are strictly regulated. We are maticulously monitored if we handle carcinogens regularly. I'm guessing you have probably applied many times, with no luck.

My gran has never worked a day in her life other than raising a family. Did her cancer come from the home?

I have never applied for a plant job and dont want one . When someone has had cancer in several different areas of the body one of the first things they look at is job history .I remember as a child him coming home smelling like chemicals and him talkin about carrying bags of chemicals up stairs to mix batches of what he made which was i believe different emulsions at his last job . I would not want a plant job personally because of the swing shift and not seeing my dad because he was working or sleeping or i was at school . i would have gave anything for him to have been to 1 of my baseball games but he was always working 12 to 16 hour shifts . Thats why i would not work a plant job because i want to see my family and have time to do things with them .There are many ways to get cancer but i am not going to fan the flames ! Sorry about your grandma , my wife lost her father 4 years ago from lung cancer at age 58 from smoking since he was a teenager !

PVC plant is a good job, however the safety isn't the best I have ever seen!
