"Hundreds of families who were abused"??? Here's the "reality and facts". Paccar provided some of the better jobs in the Nashville area. Those "abused" employees were free to get other jobs in the area but the "reality" was those other jobs were not as good as the one they already had at Paccar. The fact that you stayed on for 38 years is proof it couldn't have been that bad--either that or you were a very slow learner, Mose.
Thanks for your good holiday wishes--you also have a happy and safe 4th.
OK, Mose, lets try it this way. Eight years ago on June 20th Paccar closed the Nashville plant and you began your retirement. If the plant had remained open I suspect you would have went to work after June 20th just like you did for the previous 38 years. Your retirement was not totally voluntary and you were pretty much forced to retire. No matter how you spin it, Mose, you were let go, canned, or fired.
Also, it is hard to understand your bitterness toward Paccar. You made a good living for 38 years and you are now in retirement which you seem to be enjoying very much. If it were not for Paccar none of that would have been possible, and you continue to try to bite the hand that feeds you. Is this the old UAW strategy where you have to constantly demonize the company to justify your existence?
