Our plants are still growing. One here is stl and one in Minnesota. Come feb/march we will be so busy I'll have over time entering orders. We had 25% growth as if last quarter. We buy steel in the USA also. Which is nice. We only have a few things we get across seas.

Of course! That totally explains it!!! Brian's services are no longer needed after being replaced by the magic wand so he now spends countless hours trolling Granite City topix and reminding everyone in Granite what a shit-hole town we live in (not) while proclaiming his (delusional) superiority in his Wood River basement. ;)

Brian,
How did you become such an a-hole? First you gripe about food-stamps and such then you make rude comments about guys who work for a living. What is it ? Are you just a total tool or do you really believe your own BS? Who are you to say what someone is worth? You are nobody.

I worked for American before I got with a reputable company. The majority of employees are ex-cons jigs that work at the plant while openly selling crack at the same time. It is a terrible company!

Coming from a person that operates robots, there will never not be a need for humans.(Sorry for the double negative.)

Machines, robots, computers are never without flaw. Humans learn new skills to operate and maintain these systems.

The good news is that with robotics finally the grasp upon production by the union bozos will finally be broken
The bad news is taxpayers will have to pay to support those bozos

Caterpillar is going to have a big round of layoffs in Decatur this June
Sorta fun watching Illinois runing out of people to tax to pay the welfare and other assorted benefits there
