I have heard that a number of TULE office personnel were fired and offered their old job through a contractor. 1. Is this true? 2. If so does anyone have any more details? Considering how much money the taxpayers of Tulsa have invested in American Airlines to promote job growth this, if true, is a slap in the face. I guess American Airlines is trying to become the new Whirlpool, using cheap contract labor. http://talkbusiness.net/2012/06/whirlpool-workers-glad-its-finally-over/ I wonder what these ex UNION employees think about Whirlpool using cheap, contract labor here in Tulsa. I have said it many times and I will say it again, contract (temp) agencies are a plague on my city. They imperil good jobs and enable large scale employment of illegal labor. I wish Tulsa would ban them.
