Electricity,labor costs blamed for failed steel bid
BATON ROUGE, La. -- German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp AG complimented
Louisiana as a place to do business, but cited the state's high
utility and labor costs in picking Alabama instead as the home of a
new plant worth thousands of jobs.
Blanco said electricity costs and the effects of hurricanes Katrina
and Rita might have contributed to the decision. She said ThyssenKrupp
officials offered few specifics.
We are in a stranglehold and we don't seem to realize it. We are going to be left with two choices...we increase the regulation of Entergy or we repatriate public utilities back to the city and state and give these fuckers the boot....or the third choice....we die.
What's it gonna take to wake up to the fact this company is killing us?
