I like how companies have twisted the meaning of layoff to take the place of let go or fired.

This is just the begining im sure there will be more layed off before Christmas. They just need to see where ppl will be going and who needs to replace them. I have a idea lets offer all the 62 year old and older employees insurance untill medicaid picks them up and let the younger employees that have children and families get ro stay. Or better yet get some real management and manage the ppl who stand around and collect a paycheck.

As an employee that will be in the 10 it is ridiculous to see the ones that never show up or else dont do anything and still have a job

Yes but there's still 180 to 190 they still have jobs

This is just one example of why people hate corporate america. Does the company realize how much money they waste every day carrying dead weight such as employees who don't do anything all day? How about having some real management to actually manage they way a real company does. My heart goes out to the workers and their families. Yes there are still people with jobs but that doesn't make the few being laid off anymore insignifigant.

But hey, thanks for paying union dues all those years. I just went through the same thing in corning as the union turned their back. Unions are bullshit

ahhh is the glass half full or half empty? I believe it's half empty ... good luck finding a job and I hope the ones that got laid off you voted for the man in power you got what you deserve.. for the rest I'm terribly sorry..

I have news for the post about giving someone insurance until Medicare picks them up..........you pay for your insurance with Medicare! plus picking up perscription coverage. So at a cost of at least $200 plus for each that is a hefty total of $400 plus for a couple. Do you see why many are opting to work well past 65?

Dear Employee - you can thank the Local 88612 for keeping the bad employees in the building. Speaking as an ex Morgan employee-their lay-offs have nothing to do with Obama-it's all about the foreign owned Morgan hating the unions in Coudy and St. Marys and moving the work to their other facilities. And I can't blame them!! The unions in Morgan are progress blockers!!
P.S. Getting permanently laid off after 19 years of employment from Morgan was the best thing to happen to me :)

This is only the begining! I would agree with the 62 idea but now on TV they are saying you have to work until you are 80 to survive. The government is in control Obamana care You people voted for him or should I say Phildelphia put him in. Maybe we will have to move to Phildelphia. That is the only city that voted him in. I travel quite abit and all Isaw in Pa was Romeny banners. What happened??? The poor service men that are defending us never got their absentie ballots to even vote.Sorry folks but this is only the begining. I,m moving to Texas because the are resending from the USA. Good for them. Other states should also and leave Washington all alone. Let the States rule we don,t need Washington to tell us what to do.

Unions and their leader obuma will be the end of every job there is left in the united states!

Sure blame it on Obama. Why don't some of you people get a life and think before you post comments on here. It is terrible to lose your job in this economy but to post such stupid comments is ridiculous. I also think some who post comments should go back to school and learn how to spell.

I find this interesting. I have seen similar cutbacks at other places.There is always someone that ends up getting lucky and staying while everyone else is like, WTF how can they get rid of these people that do their jobs and keep the people that don't? I think it just points to out of touch management. Sooner or later it will catch up with them.

Why then, do you not tell us why we should NOT blame obama?? Get a life?? That man is going to affect all our lives before the next 4 years are over. Our Constitution is being trampled on and grossly misinterpreted all for the benefit of his socialist agenda.

Yeah...blame Obama for everything. How about blaming those GOP "Job creators" who claim they have to continue paying a far lower percentage of their incomes than the rest of us do because they are the "JOB CREATORS!" Well, when exactly are they going to start creating these jobs? I know they have created thousands in places like China and Mexico but hey! They get those tax breaks for the past 12+ years that the rest of us are financing with higher taxes. We could use some of those jobs here ourselves. So don't blame this administration. They are the ones fighting for us while the GOP wants only to protect the richest Americans.

Well I can see a lot of sore ass Republican poor losers commenting here. Blame Congress, It's not just The President ppl. He surely doesn't have ALL the say! Sucks to lose your job at Holiday time, although any time is bad. I feel too if you are old enough to retire, you should!! Give the younger generation a chance! Best of luck. Unions aren't always what they say they are too !!!

The Union cannot control the economy or the actions of Management. The Union can only re-act to what the management does. I too feel it is terrible to loose ones job, but if the numbers are not there to keep workers on, the less senior employees must go. I just wish the Union President could have found time to attend the meeting.

Wasnt it YOUR president that was talking about the 5 million jobs he would create his first 2 years in office? Well here we are....5 years later

Anonymous said...

Really? He dont have the say? Must be why he is on t.v saying "we will absolutely not reach a deal unless they raise taxes"??? Why dont you explain to me exactly HOW anybody (rich or poor) should have to pay a penny more to fuel his spending habits? You know why he is so set on the idea of taxes? This is part of a payment for "obama care". We will just be right here again in 6 months anyway! Because he cannot control himself. Soon they will be back at the table to raise the debt ceiling again. This is the change you can believe in...Ah yes, I can still here him saying "When Im president I will cut the deficit in half in my first term. When Im president everything we do in the white house will be public information. When Im president I will reign in on wasteful government spending. When Im president I will bring out troops home day 1". And the list goes on and on. You know as well as we do

This is a confusing event that Morgan AM&T has carried out. over the last year the parent company Morgan Crucible has invested a great deal of money in this facility. Between new equipment and ever evolving changes within the plant layout, it makes no sense. So one of 2 things have taken place.

A) Seriously bad management and sales projections or

B) A piss poor attempt to a raise a facade over the upcoming negotiations in January.

Either way its the 10 employees who just had their holiday shat upon by corporate greed.

Question??? Why is the Bulb Company in Bath closing???? 260 jobs. Why is the Company in Buffalo closing???You need to watch TV Every day a company is closing. Obama care????

"Shat upon." LOL! Don't often see the past tense of that verb.

For all the morons who think Obama is the reason for layoffs and plant closings.....

"Trickle Down Economics" started under Reagan and continues to this day, but the Republican majority in congress who all want to cut taxes and give it to the rich. Reagan was first elected in 1980.
Tell me, how long does it take to work?
In the meantime, the rich have gotten MUCH richer, the poor have gotten MUCH poorer, and the in-between are being squeezed more and more every day.
It has to do with greed, and the helpiong hand our elected officials give to the rich. Why? Who donates money to the politicians? THE RICH PEOPLE!!!! Just like Corbett is owned by the gas industry (Why? Because they give him the most money!!!), our politicians are owned by big business, who don't pay any taxes. Electing Romney would have put one of 'them' in charge of all of us, just like Bush1 and Bush2, both of whom are filthy stinking rich.
It's time for the middle class to rise up and take back what we built from the owners, who took it from us.

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not
warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure."
