Guest opinion: Loss of good jobs hits Montanans hard Billingsgazette.com (2/26)

"Despite the recent rosy news about the national economy, the fact is too many of us have been laid off or have seen friends and family bring home a pink slip because plants and mines are closing or moving overseas. And those of us who do get new jobs find that they are rarely as good as the ones we lost. Fewer manufacturing jobs mean less revenue for our schools, local business and the community. And we're not alone. The whole country has seen persistent layoffs, job losses and the resulting economic fallout for workers and our communities."

And that, my friends, is the whole thing in a nutshell. It takes a miner to say what politicians are afraid to, and what folks in business won't.
