Anybody heard about the recent brain tumors employees have developed? How can this company stand by and not do anything to help out these employees? Something needs to be done.

I worked there for a year and it was horrible. Piss poor working conditions, management didn't give a rats ass, hardly and ventalation. The poor ventalation requires the employees to breathe in harmful fumes which are most likely causing the brain tumors. Since I've quit I've heard of several guys getting brain tumors who work there. That's no coincidence. ARI should be shut down until they fix the problems. An investigation needs to be done before anyone else gets harmed!

Then get him out of there. I knew a great family man that worked there for
Years. He left Because he was diagnosed with brain cancer and died shortly there after. It is very frightening to think some people work in jobs that truly will be there death. I pray for all that become ill and there families They do need to settle these rumors as it would not be fair to
ARI if it has been caused by something else. There are far to many good
People working there.

I hope all the family's who are suffering from a loved one that has become diagnosed with these tumors can find a way to bring justice to this, no person deserves to work in an unsafe environment to support a family. I understand it's not confirmed but I too have heard about this other than on this site and was concerned about it then. Isnt this something OSHA can investigate and help better the work conditions and managements if they are as bad and shady as stated above? What if management is trying to cover it up? That's horrible to let these poor employees keep breathing in these fumes harming themselves. It saddens me to see all the cruel people in the world like this problem here if it is true people are willing to throw it under the rug and pretend it didn't happen. How do they sleep at night? I hope justice is served and all the employees can better themselves. God bless

I had not heard of the brain tumors of the ARI employees. How many employees have been diagnosed? There seems to be something going on in our area, as I know of 4 children and 5 adults who have been diagnosed with malignant brain tumors over the course of the last 4-5 years. Unsettling. Causes me to wonder about environmental factors??

My son works there. He loves it. He has worked at a few different places harder jobs, and easier jobs. He loves working there. I think most of your job is whether you like it or not. It is what you put into it. I know a lot of people get fired there, and he says that the ones that do, deserve it. If you work hard, and are proud of the job that you do at the end of the day, then it will be a good place to work. As for the brain tumor thing, I think there are places that this can happen. If that kind of work environment is not for someone, they should find work elsewhere. Just sayin'....
