Hawbaker Lays Off 60 To 80 Road Workers Tuesday

Road builder Glenn O. Hawbaker 
cuts work force

By Matt Morgan — mmorgan@centredaily.com
Centre Daily Times
STATE COLLEGE — Glenn O. Hawbaker laid off about 80 workers Tuesday, and the company president said inaction by the state government is to blame.

Dan Hawbaker, president of the heavy construction company, urged state legislators and the governor to devote more money to infrastructure.

He said the latest layoffs number between 60 and 80 workers, but did not provide a specific number. GOH has reduced its force by more than 110 overall this year.

It's to bad the STATE didn't hire Hawbakers and keep tax monies in Pa., instead of hiring out of state Whitford. Maybe things would be different for Pa. tax paying people!

@9:43 What in the world does this have to do with fracking activity?

That guy clearly has no idea what he is talking about. It clearly states in the article above that Hawbaker's (GOH)is a heavy construction company, not a fracking company. Use your head, a woodpecker does.

Where is all the obama stimulus money for infrastructure ? Oh i forgot he gave all those billions to his freinds!

Hawbaker's did this to themselves. They counted on the "gas boom" to keep them going. Now that everyone is pulling out, they don't have work. They bid very little on the bridges and roadways and the ones they did bid on, they were obviously way over on. They've done nothing but jerk their guys around since last November. Most have been on partial unemployment since then. No sympathy from me for them. That's where greed will get you!

Nice of gas companies like Shell to hire Philadelphia and out of state companies to do their construction work and hire out of state companies to truck their water. All why local companies and local independent water haulers are starving for work.

Hey 1:41 - I hope you are in the financial sector if you knew that the price of natural gas was going to fall off a cliff. I am sure that every business person in the world prefers to do the work that is less profitable like the hard bid PADOT work rather than work for the more profitable private side.

This is just the first round of lay-offs; they plan to do it several hundred more from their Aggregate Facilities throughout the state this fall....

The poor families that Hawbaker just kicked to the curb on Tuesday will go from a cost of $15.00 per week for Healthcare and full-time employment to $800.00 a week for COBRA which is twice state Unemployment Insurance pays, while they search desperately for work anywhere as is required by the new UC reporting laws....

One cannot imagine what is was like getting their insurance renewal packets with this years benefits in the mail on the very same day of the layoff either....

Karma....

Can some of you READ? The article clearly says the state isn't spending money on infrastructure (meaning roads and bridges, hence the layoffs. Last time I checked, the state isn't building well locations for oil companies so why the comments about fracking? And those bitching about Obama have only the tea party and Republicans to blame since they are obstructing the infrastructure bills and every job bill that they can.

Hey back at ya 4:41...common sense would tell any business man that once the wells are set (concrete, stone, etc.) there would no longer be a need for the construction companies! Dan Hawbaker "said" that the state has cut back....well, that's true to some extent, there were cut backs....BUT...there's still a lot of roadways and bridges being worked on! They didn't bid on them! They thought they were going to get rich with the well sites. Again, because of greed.
