Walker's Job Plan At Work

From BizTimes.com:
Rock-Tenn Converting Company and Rock-Tenn Services Inc. today informed the state they intend to permanently close their plant on Milwaukee’s northwest side, eliminating 199 jobs.

The plant to be closed is located at 1900 W. Cornell St.

Rock-Tenn, which is based in Norcross, Ga., said it expects the Milwaukee plant to be closed by July 17.

Some of the employees to be laid off are members of the United Steel, Paper & Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial & Service Workers International Union.
The article goes on to say that the company is using this as a bargaining lever to make the unions make heavy concessions.

This is life under Walker's reign. Give up your rights and a lot of your hard earned money, or give up your jobs and your homes.

Is it November yet?

  1. Is someone keeping count on Walkers job creation promise?

    250,000 + 199 + the damage that he has already done?

    How long will he keep going in the wrong direction?
