The Job-Loss Recovery continues in Ohio...

From AP:
TIMKEN WILL BEGIN CLOSING CANTON BEARINGS PLANTS
CANTON — The Timken Co. said Friday that it will begin closing three Canton bearings plants that employ 1,300 workers.
Once again, Bush demonstrates that he is the anti-Midas. If Bush visits your workplace to give a policy speech (i.e. photo op), you'd better get your resume polished and start looking for a new job.

From last year's "Jobs and Growth" speech:
I appreciate the Timken family for their leadership, their concern about their fellow associates. They're working hard to make sure the future of this company is bright, and therefore, the future of employment is bright for the families that work here, that work to put food on the table for their children.
This administration and its enablers make me sick.
