It's been for real for a long time. When I was on the road I've picked up and delivered to the plant in Iowa they have moved the operation to. It is for real.

I know a few people who work there. At least they will most likely qualify for a retraining program for displaced workers through the Career Center. While they are retraining I think they get to receive unemployment for the whole time. "I think". It's not like a regular paycheck, but for many its better than the alternative.
So sad

Maybe there's something that will be done with the land. Hopefully nothing to do with life-wasting oil wars.
