Haslam is so big on putting people out of jobs they have done well for years - I say let's hit him where it hurts. BOYCOTT PILOT!!!!!! I will never again set foot in a Pilot gas station. Pass the word along to your friends and neighbors.
Apparently he is like his buddy Romney who doesn't care about the poor people - Haslam cares for neither the staff nor the kids who benefit from Taft.
I will have a really hard time supporting a Republican again (with the exception of those who actually are helping the people at Taft and care about people more than politics or their pocket) and will never support one who says run government like a business. Government is for the people not for the profit.
The people at Taft cannot believe anything they say. They claim there are comparable jobs with comparable pay at the prison for them. The prison is putting their own people in any decent job they have and will start Taft employees at the bottom with huge pay cuts. At least half the people at Taft will not have a job at the prison unless they are willing to go into the military style security system at the bottom of the salary range after working 15-30 years helping kids and working their way up the ladder.
It would be great if a recall election could put him and his good buddy Kate O'Day out of a job too! The number of outright lies they have propogated about Taft is astounding even for politicians. They have absolutely no credibility left.
They're certainly not there to serve the people of Tennessee!!!
