PA Paper Mill Workers Shocked Over Plant Closing, Even Though Union Endorsed Biden
A paper mill in Pennsylvania is stunned right now after union employees were told that the plant will be closing.
Workers are shellshocked.
What’s even more shocking is that the union endorsed Joe Biden. Now, people who have worked at the plant for 25-years have no idea what they’re going to do.
The plant employed some 300 Americans.
This is the first “significant” manufacturing loss since Biden was installed.
As you know, President Trump was all about bringing manufacturing back to the US, and sadly, it looks like that heyday may be coming to end under globalist Joe.
The paper mill was told the closing is due to COVID, but workers suspect it’s actually due to “green deal” environmental issues.
Appvion Inc., a paper mill plant in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania, is closing down on April 1 despite its union endorsing Joe Biden in 2020.
The New York Post called it the “first significant manufacturing loss in this state since President Biden took office.” 293 people will lose their jobs: 250 union, 43 management.
“When 300 people lose good-paying jobs, it’s not just 300 people that are adversely affected,” said Stephen McKnight of the Altoona-Blair County Development Corporation. “For every one job lost, an additional four to seven jobs outside the company are hurt, too. The long-term impact is even worse, costing a region millions of dollars that used to go directly into the community, schools and businesses.”
The president of the local United Steelworkers branch, Mitchell Becker, said that he’s had his job for 25 years and had no idea it was on the chopping block.
“We never thought we’d close, we just thought we would be sold,” he said.
Last month Becker assumed he’d be attending a routine meeting, but he and his team received a plant closure announcement instead.
“The mill leadership, including management from Wisconsin, just told us that we’re closing down on April 1st. And then they got up and left the room and let us sit there to vent to each other,” he recalled.
Well, honestly, we should expect to see a lot more of this.
The progressive globalists have no use for a thriving middle-class.
That group, like always, will be first on the chopping block of the “great re-set.”
Either by these tyrannical COVID lockdowns or they’ll be slaughtered on the green altar of environmentalism.
Either way, you’re a fool if you actually thought Biden would be a good “jobs” president.
