It would be irresponsible for us to let the small 1920's building go to waste.
The closing of this and many urban plants says one thing. Working class Blue Collar are not welcome and spoiled Yuppies are.
And let's not forget that all the Union-haters out there wouldn't want anything to remain and remind us all of the thousands of secure, good-paying UNION jobs that Ford provided at the plant for 90 years. Nope, couldn't have that now, could we.
How about some more reflective glass buildings so that the sun blinds you when you drive down Ford Parkway.
Nobody is going to want that land because it is too polluted. So, why not rebuild the plant so those of us that had to transfer out of state to remain employed can come home.
I worked at the Ford Plant for eleven years so I agree that something should be saved. On the side of the building is a beautiful sculpture that takes up one side of the office enterance along Mississippi Blvd. That would be the best item to save to honor the man and the company that helped provide jobs for so many peope.
