Do you think this had anything to do with the Russian/Ukraine conflict with the sanctions against Russian business and individuals?

They can't fly. They miss more heats in a week than Ashland does in a year and they shut down every day at noon to pray. Better be praying that you can keep your job. None of this acceptable AK procedure.

I wonder how things are going up at the dearborn plant. I know it is probably crazy with all the new safety rules and equipment. I know for instance crescent wrenches are banned at our AK facility. What a joke. And you have to wear kevlar sleeves to make a 15 foot walk from a break room to a restroom b/c you are on a walkway in an "operating area". Sort of.
