You guys gonna pick that scab again. Let it heal over. Hooper was a turd in a punch bowl, Redman wasn't much better and Tony was as worthless as they came; but there was more wrong with the cement plant than just a POS boss.<quoted text>
Yes little Tony was a daddy's boy. Heres something funny, Larry wouldnt let any supervisors go to or take any type of training, UNTIL he made Tony a foreman, then sent him to some training class, and then cooked his expense report...WOULDNT let Tony's direct boss even see it.
Larry didnt have the respect of anyone out there except his little son, and of course his cock sucker Fred Redman. Fred had his nose so far up Larry's ass it wasnt funny. If Larry farted Fred could taste what he had for dinner!! Here's something else when his other son, Larry Jr.(dope head, white trash) would get picked for a random drug test, he would call daddy and then go home with a tummy ache. This happen more than once. Just a few examples of poor leadership he had....
It started on its way down hill when US Steel sold the place. Capital improvements that should have been made to keep up with the rest of the industry were not made by Lehigh or Harikopis and Buzzi certanly didn't put much money into improvements either. By the time Buzzi bought the place it was so far behind on capital improvements that it was all but too late.
Let it heal over. Try to remember the good times and the friends that worked together for years and years producing some of the best cement in the Midwest.
No one that worked there needs to be reminded time and again about how bad a manager Hooper was. Let the wound heal.
