Retooled as a Tool (2016)


Shenango China Company — New Castle, Pennsylvania

In January 1988, as Syracuse China was finalizing the acquisition and the Shenango China plant was temporarily shut down. The last 700 employees were laid off and it was soon announced that they would all have to reapply for their jobs with only 250 employees to be re-hired, at lower wages and decreased benefits. When the plant reopened in February 1988 there was anger among those that were not rehired, but also among those that were.
