Your spelling and use of the wrong words in trying to put together a sentence in your last post tells me the level of your intellect. One of the people terminated was the only boiler expert onsite. There is no one to replace his skill currently working there. Companies cut personnel irrationally all the time. You, never having worked there, cannot rationalize any reasons for why people were terminated. Then again, your idiotic posting is not that different from many others who post here and clearly have their heads implanted in their posterior.
Before I retired from the Tech Center I worked with a lot of those people who were terminated. Most were hard working technicians and engineers who contributed greatly to the research done by AA. Before you post your moronic opinion you a##hole know something about the subject!
Amen Edblue. Just pray that Obama has not irreparably harmed the US. He has enabled all the factions who have surfaced in the last six years that have driven our country to the depths.
Every day the buyers dry up and the sellers and shorts take over and drive the price down. I can't imagine at what price these sellers bought that they are making money down here. This will be the scenario until the buyers finally overwhelm the shorts and sellers to reverse the trend. When that happens the shorts will be running for cover. Not until there is substantial good news or aluminum price reversal unfortunately.
The capacity curtailment by AA will be significantly covered by the Maa'den facility. It is the most modern and cost efficient in the world. Bar none. They will not divest from aluminum because this downturn will not last. AA knows more about aluminum than any company in the world. Bar none!
