Corporate greed first displayed by Phelps Dodge and now by their successor Freeport McMoran has always determined the economic stability of this area of Eastern Arizona. They, as the biggest employer in the area can and do control the local economy. Their lack of concern for the area is exemplified by their willingness to close operations at will. They need to be more balanced in their search for the allmighty dollar. But then again they are a foreign company who has purchased one of the largest copper operations in the world.

Brodan62 has cranial-rectalsitis. First Freeport is a US owned US based company that relocated from Louisiana to AZ. They also ARE the employer of choice for anyone with a brain in this 52mile radius. Do not hold grudges over the RIF.LET IT GO. Let us see cheap housing, cheap electric, cheap water cheap trash, the best insurance package in AZ maybe better than most unions. Good 401K, get a weeks paid vacation every month plus more vacation, 2 1/2 on holidays if worked. Unlimited overtime. PD was a joke that drove thier employees into the ground. Now in 2009 when the market crashed they did panic. 2500 plus we lost our jobs. The ones worth a shit got theirs back.

To work for those type of companies, you got to know one of the rule. When the copper is empty, the whole town will be gone for good. So, save your money as possible and move back to where you like it most.
Safford and Morenci cities will be empty soon when the copper will be gone.
