32. Ratface emmitt boyle closed ORMET mill

The rolling mill my husband retired from. Boyle hated his employees so much that when he rode the formerly robust plant into bankruptcy, he gutted the plant to ensure it would never be used as a rolling mill again, and left about 800 steel workers unemployed. The reduction mill went into bankruptcy and closure because Gov. Kasich wouldn't allow an exemption for electrical power, so another 100 people left without jobs. The mills had been in operation since the 1950's, and it took boyle and his backers less than 10 years to run them into the ground.

tripe can put tariffs on imports, but are there any plants left that can open and run? Why the hell does he think they call it the Rust Belt?

This link describes a lock-out at one of boyle's other mills, that he also ruined: http://www.nytimes.com/1992/05/08/us/how-a-union-won-an-appalachian-struggle.html?pagewanted=all

There is a book called Men of Steel that also talks about ORMET, boyle, marc rich and other events in the aluminum industry
