Listening to Oakley this morning, I heard that the contract offered by Caterpillar was NOT voted on. That means that a handful of union activists sealed the fate of their co-workers and a large number of others. I heard an estimate of 2,100 total jobs were lost.
How is it that Caterpillar is the villain for our news media? They made a good faith offer to keep the plant going. On the other hand, 2,100 people had their livelihoods curtailed by faceless goons.
If I were one of those people I would attempt a class action lawsuit against those INDIVIDUALS involved.
