Both olemanriver and justathought's comments are rude and inappropriate. In light of Wacker's failure to deliver on their promise to many new hires and Chat State students it is obvious that 328Kwebsite knows what he is talking about. In fact, I am one of those many new hires and so called Wacker trainees that attended Chat State and paid his own way. No Wacker paid education subsidized by the State of Tennessee. No student loans subsidized by the US Government. Just my own hard earned cash. I can assure you that many of those with loans and tuition picked up by Wacker couldn't have gotten through high school chemistry and math let alone college. 328Kwebsite is correct in his observation that the Wacker hiring team purposely selected locals to fulfill the hiring demands of the local politicians who lobbied to bring Wacker to Tennessee. The only fact that 328Kwebsite left out is that the majority of the Wacker chemical operator hires couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time. Why should the Tennessee tax payers and U.S. citizens subsidize the hiring of a few 100 Bradley and Hamilton County locals?
