Cry me a river

So, Blount County Mayor Jerry Cunningham was blindsided that the local Rubbermaid plant decided to lay off 200 people. By blindsided, you’d think he meant shocked or concerned. But he’s more concerned because Rubbermaid didn’t tell him:

I am very surprised that any company would have handled the manner in the way that this company chose, he said in a press release.

In the past, other companies, when they have even downsized, have had the courtesy to visit with the different governmental entities relative to these kinds of things inasmuch as it affects so many live, he said.

Well, first of all Sparky, the local government did know because police were there when Rubbermaid fired everybody.

    At what point in our brief history did we switch over to the point where the “government” was involved with 100% of business transactions?

    About 1937

  3. Earl Says:

    Considering that was a private company matter, why on Earth does the Mayor think he deserved to know about it first?

    Maybe he was could have diverted some of the County funds to buying large supplies of Rubbermaid items and boosting local demand?

    “About 1937”

    Or when the clause was written. Pick and Choose. Pick and Choose.
