I don't recall this company receiving any bailouts but they do pay taxes to the state. So Mr. Rendell stay out of the private sector. Or better yet why don't you rile the dummies who are anti-capitalists up in arms like your party is doing with AIG when they are the ones at fault.

And how much would we have saved if this bunch had been in charge and not free spending fat eddie? This is the same governor who says we are going to need more taxes and he will layoff several thousand employees and the he hires a pulic relations firm to explain the stimulus to us. In short, we are being screwed, what else do we have to know? How much is this firm getting?$100,000 and it is a friend of the governor. HOW NICE.

I am really glad I don't ever buy gas from them. Their gas is horrible, so I'm not surprised that they are a lousy company to work for.

Hey Ed, a company's duty is to its shareholders. Funny you don't want them to layoff, but Pennsylvania's gas tax is one of the highest in the nation.

Rendell is a joke. I guess this makes him feel good about himself. What business is this of his anyway.

He should worry about the state workers who get paid to be lazy.

Rendell...why don't you take a dose of your own criticism and whack all those stupid, do-no-benefit state jobs, especially the recent ones you handed out after you announced a hiring freeze for the state.
You're a disgrace...and a hipocrite!

Its all about GREED. There's no reason to lay these workers off when the company made such a HUGE profit.

And what about duty the customers? Layoff and watch quality and productivity go down the tubes. Then see how long any company survives. And what about people with no jobs? What will they buy without money to spend? Who then will pump money into the economy?

You can thank Wall Mart and this stinking Wall Mart economy for part of this mess. I guess we'll all have to move to China to work.

When a company's responsibility to its shareholders trumped its responsibility to its community, we all lost. Taxes paid by employees are lost when they lose their jobs. Take a modest hit on the profits and keep the company running with as much of the staff intact as possible, and your company will make out in the long run. There is too much emphasis on large profits in the short run.
good logic

Why is it the governor's business to determine who gets layed off from a company that has seen a huge drop in fuel demand this year?

This is nothing more than lip service to appeal to the populist mindset that is poisoning our country.

How does Rendell know whats best for Sunoco? This is a career politician who has never ran a private business in his life.

You can thank Congress for allowing our manufacturing capacity to be shipped overseas, NAFTA and "free trade". Pile on Laws, Regulation and taxes here and allow companies to flee overseas where they are not subject to same. Self inflicted wound and we keep sending these fools back.
