Calling All Unheard Victims of the Economy

Posted January 28, 2009 7:51 AM

It's not difficult to find updates on how the global economy is hitting the bigger plastics firms worldwide. Bayer MaterialScience has announced 10% salary cuts across the board, while the U.S. division of LyondellBasell has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. BASF has introduced a combination of plant shutdowns and fewer hours for workers. Tough news, to be sure. But how about the smaller companies? What is happening to the mom-and-pop businesses?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Plastics & Resins, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Plastics & Resins today.

'They Lie Hard Work Do Kill People' Then in top of everything if someone got hurt they let it go anyhow so where's the filling? Workmans Comp? forget it that takes 4ever, then between the Doctors and Lawyers half of that are mapped out byebye, not too good, unfortunatly, like any insurances companies. When you need it doesn't work out neither. Is a 'No Win Situation' in a 'Murphy Law' real life scenarios always. I don't Know Pal's!

Hang in There,
