I know people who have retired from there. Isn't the big problem lead poisoning? The people who own the place are rich. They don't treat their employees well. People give their all to that place for their adult life. Retire with lead poisoning for which we the taxpayers via Medicare foot the bill. And the owners continue to be rich, arrogant assholes.

Now I wonder why there is no industry in elizabethton. Maybe you should get your facts straight before you start a stupid forum. This is ridiculous.

The reason there is no industry in Elizabethton is the leaders are not doing their job recruiting jobs into the area.

The place has gone downhill. There have been a lot of good men that started the plant pass away, most of the older one's were the back bone of the company, the had the connections and the drive to work hard. Now you have the younger people, of which are son's and grandsons of the older ones. Funny how that works. Now about the lead, you are right but 80% of people who worked there have died from cancer.

Another reason there is no industry is that it would be difficult to find decent employees. People in this county would rather be on the "dole" than to work. They do not wish to make an honest living. We have so many people on drugs, in this area, that it would be hard to find enough to run a plant of some kind. Sad, but true.
