While Capper is gone, I suppose I will have to pick up the mantle. Back in September of 2012, Capper wrote a post titled "The Walker Budget Keeps Working! Part CXLV" about Brillion Iron Works laying off almost 200 workers. As noted then, with just two days warning, nearly 200 people's lives were thrown into turmoil.
Well, consider today's announcement that the same company in the small Northeast Wisconsin community of Brillion is laying off another 46 workers as an addendum to that posting. Some in the media are trying to sugar coat this story, talking about how the jobs seem to always "come back." Don't buy it! (Media bias is fake, right?) Actually read quotes from the company's Director of Public Affairs:
"We still have not brought those employees back. Orders are still fairly weak,” said Weir.
