On February 13th, Monday there will be a plant walkout of employees who believe they should be making more money and have a better work environment. If you're tired of being under paid and seeing a huge turn over rate then join us. We too want a drug free work place but you don't get that at a place that pays nothing!!!

I hope it works for you, that place is horrible they fired people like crazy when I worked there and didn't pay anything back then and the place was infested with drugs. I really hope it works out people are being taken advantage of in rockwood by those that have.

Have you ever thought about the fact that should you walk out then the company just may elect to close up-move out of Rockwood. Jobs are very scarce at this time and it is better to have something rather than nothing. Think about it!!! Several years ago when Breezy Wynn came to Roane County all the employees complained and complained, walked out etc. and guess what one day the company told them they would close up and did.

It's called job abandonment, they'll replace you and not miss a beat. You can all file for assistance together.

It doesn't matter what you think you need. You are paid what you are worth. If you want to be paid more , you need to increase your worth.Get your GED. Take some classes at Roane State. Financial assistance is availiable.

What qualifications do the workers have that make them think they are worth so much more money? Electrician, Plumber, Welder? Get another job somewhere, they are plentiful if you have a trade. So many people, when asked what they can do, reply "ANYTHING" and when it narrows down, can do NOTHING. Get some education and a life.

they don't want to work their way up, though. they want to come in making bank like they're worth something. they might do a little better if they would put as much effort into a job as they do into this forum or whining & complaining... oh, and the walk out isn't going to happen but if you do walk out just remember that you're not irreplaceable. And there are plenty of people out there that would like the opportunity to work. Its a job, there aren't many around here so quit complaining about the ones that are. And these *low wages* seem to keep my bills paid and gas in my car...

You want change? Improve your life. Improve your situation. Educate yourself. You can say whatever you want about you're managers and supervisors but the fact of the matter is you're a commodity and they know this. I'm not trying to be insulting. There's nothing wrong with being where you're at. You walk out and you'll be replaced almost immediately. There's plenty of people who will gladly take your place and won't complain about it. You want more money? Go back to school and prove your worth. You're paid based on what you deserve. If you honestly feel like you deserve better then prove it to someone. Being complacent as you seem to be isn't proving anything other than you're you're getting exactly what you deserve. A better life won't be handed to you. You are the only one who can change that.
