Why Do Away With the Tannery?

Dear Editor,

They call it restructuring. It’s more like company greed. The tannery is making money, just not enough. How much is enough?

Why does everyone have to leave the U.S.A. and outsource production to Asia? Sad, isn’t it.

The meeting at the city council chambers on March 12 had some good ideas. Save the tannery, get industrial jobs in there. Not more stores or office buildings to sit empty for years. Get jobs for the many people losing theirs, like the 125 tannery workers. And I’m sure the $500,000 lost income to the sewer authority will make people pay more to use water.

Michigan is about to leave the map!
