An Employee at Plastic Systems was hit by a forklift that had no breaks last week. The forklift was allowed to be operated for the last year even though management knew that the forklift had no breaks. Hopefully OSHA gets a report on this, the employee was knocked down and hit in the head by one of the forks, causing him to get staples in his head. A couple inches further it could've took an eye or crushed his skull. When will they stop cutting corner's to save a buck? Will it take someone getting killed out there for it to get closed down? Employees are high on pills and heroin to the point they can't even stand up or keep their eyes open. Plastic Systems owes so much money to the hospital that they are making new hires pay for their own drug tests without compensation! I am a firm believer in a thing called Karma, and the management staff at Plastic Systems ( Josh Tudor, Julie Parker ) have it coming in some way or another, bad things happen to bad people.

josh and julie deserve to be responsible, they are allowing this to happen, coke, pills, herion, weed, they are all involved and letting it go on heard from an employee that tells all, that they know and still let people get away with doing and selling and going outside to get high. oh yeah because josh is a pill head himself, and wake up julie josh has been messing with emma and your associates know and laugh about it behind your back

The new "plant manager" Chris Collins is a joke. He doesn't come out in the plant to check on anything. Julie knows about Josh, they are too deep in debt to break up. Chris said he was going to do something about the people doing drugs, yea right it still goes on. Josh IS a pill popping loser who is outside playing games on his phone all day now that he got demoted. He's in charge of shipping so now he has all the free time to goof off. This place has to be a tax write off for the owner in Michigan or he's a complete moron. Either way it can't keep going the way it is. Hate to see the few good workers thay they take advantage of lose their job when it shuts down, which is going to happen.

Pat, he works on first shift. A real nice guy who is trying to support his family. He does not do drugs, never has. He ended up with 25 staples in his head hasn't been able to work since the "accident". It was no accident, it was criminal on behalf of the company. I hope he gets an attorney, but I doubt he will because he wants to work and not cause "problems".

Julie took him to the hospital instead of calling an ambulance for a head injury. She is lucky he didn't have a seizure or worse on the way. She just dropped him off and never checked back. After his tests and treatment she wouldn't even go to give him a ride home. He had to call a friend of the family to come and get him. Julie is a royal bitch for this! Karma will come back on her!

I'm encouraging everyone there to contact unions to see if one will come out and at least scare the sh*t out of the company. They cannot stop a union from coming there to discuss things with employees, that is a protected right.

What do you expect from a place that pays as much or less than a fast food joint? U think 7-8 Bucks an Hour is going to get any kind of worker that gives a damn?

Unions should not be involved, get OSHA involved, get the labor board involved, the States Attorney General's office. They take employee money, they let drugs be dealt there, they know things aren't safe and they let them happen anyway which makes them just as guilty as the people messing things up!

OSHA, and not Unions, should be involved. The guy will hopefully get compensated for what has happened to him. However, I am at a conflict of interest here. Every day I hear or see someone crying about the welfare junkies doing drugs and receiving free assistance. Plastic systems, as crappy as it is, allows for the motivated ones to actually go try and earn a pay check. I don't care if they are doing drugs. It's not happening on my dime if they are working. It's none of my business what someone does behind their own walls. Felons don't stand a chance in this system. I'm not overly sensitive about that. It's their own damn fault, but at the same time I don't want to pay every felons way because they can't find a job. ATI, is a little better alternative. However, the people in Kenton that need jobs like these don't always have the transportation. When Plastic Systems eventually fail, this towns crime rate will climb. Even if it be so slightly it will happen.

I work here and I agree! Problem is they just will hire more pill poppers at $7.70 an hour with never getting a raise. They should give raises to the good workers after so long. Maybe some more decent people will come here.

Like I said, if they are clean,they do not have to worry about a shop wide drug test....I know for a fact more than half would fail. I do give them (the users) credit, at least they are working for their keep and not out stealing from innocent people. Whether it is $8 and hour or $20. They are working!!!!!

That place is worse than high school. Everyone thinks they know everything about everything. The drunks talk about the junkies and vise versa. If everyone would worry about themselves it would be a much easier place to be. I agree people should not be high at work but thats just how some people are. Just like others go home EVERYDAY and drink.

Going home and having a drink is legal, doing drugs ain't. And neither should be part of work! So I will worry about others drinking or doing drugs at work cause it is not safe and they fck up all thr parts.

Even in a bad economy,people with any machining skills are worth more than $7.50to 8.oo Dollars an hour. Seasonal farm work pay 10.00-12.00 an hour! Geesh

In the 80's, a machinist was worth more than $15.00/hour. Relative to minimum wage, cost of goods has doubled over the past 4 decades. Machine Shop hours are typically $75.00/hour + materials. As one of my disciplines is machining, I have to ask, what happened? When did people allow themselves to become so devalued?
