Former employees were allowed first pick at jobs in the newly named company,for entry level pay,and reduced benefits.This also saved the company the added expence of re-training their work force.

Believe it or not,most employees decided that the 2 hour commute,and extra gas and tolls were worth it.

Carlin is unfortunately correct.It's the dumbing down of Americans,that allows this to happen.Our education system is failing us in every way possible.Critical thinkers are branded as anti-American.

Just turn on any TV,and watch "reality" shows like Jersey Shore,or Mob Wives.They have now set the bar to an all time low for a standard in what's considered entertainment.
