What the CEO makes is none of your business
Your wage rate is determined by market forces and you greedily wanted more than you were worth.
If you want what a CEO makes...then go be a CEO

Hello, Olin/winchester sucks, the point system if made for companies that give thier employees sick/personal days off, in olins eyes you dont need a day off, i have been working 13 days on with 1 day off. Managment has made comments how we dont deserve a day off. The only reason we get the 1 day off off is because its the law. Management is stupid to say the least.. force people over for no reason, just to do it. if you get sick, dont call off you will get a point. If you are sick and need 3 days off and Dr says so,cuz you need it off, Olin doesnt care.. you have to medical leave if you need a(5) few days off, and you will still get 1 point if you take medical. so then your only opton is FMLA, then you can take any day off you need, but the company cries BOO HOO to many people on FMLA. well the Company forced people to use FMLA, the only excused absence is if your die..Now winchester is moving to Oxford Ms,.. Joesph Rupp says we make $10 per hour to much, and he cant make it on 6 mil a year. Wish i had that peoblem.. The Move to Oxford isnt about union,taxes ect.. its all about Corperate GREED, Rupp wants more in his pocket and less to the hard working employees..Over the past few yrs the management has treated the union working with no respect,like we are dirt and dogs.
Winchester is a piss poor run company, when they move the employees will loose thier, jobs,homes,car and pension..
This area will suffer..
Hey RUPP, if you want to save money then cut your pay..or get out and go somewhere else, leave winchester alone and right here in east alton.
I LOST MY JOB TO GREED
Well, that just about sums it up entirely, at least from my perspective. I suspect we'll have a worker revolution one of these days in the U.S. or at least a general strike nation-wide. And some people on the right(wrong) side argue that workers have too many rights and the big bad unions are what's crippling our standard of living- no, it is corporate greed that is pushing us to third-world status and third-world treatment by employers.

This isn't just happening at Olin-Winchester... this is happening at all major corporations and companies. We are all treated terrible that work in a factory or plant setting. The managers they hire are toddlers fresh out of college that have never worked a real job in their lives or have any kind of social skills to deal with employees.

You guys are right. They don't care about you.. your family... your physical or mental health. All they care about is the production. But when something happens to them, God forbid, roll out the red carpet for special treatment.

We will always be management scapegoats, even if they have made the poor decisions that have ruined the business. Union or not, everyone is a door mat. Stop blaming the unions... there aren't that many left anyway.
