I am sorry to hear about the plant closing. I worked there as HR manager for a little over a year and there are a lot of really good people working there. God bless them and their families.

What??? You are not blaming a union for the closing? Everyone else does when a plant closes. Come on folks...let's blame the UAW, IAM, Steelworkers and any other union out there. It has to be the union's fault. Come on you can do better than this.
