Has ESCO Corporation joined the list of Companies Cutting Jobs Because of Obamacare – if not, than what was the reason for the recent mass job termination that occurred within their company. Former employees want to know why this happened and why management remains silent about the fallout.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, ESCO Corporation is a leading manufacturer of high-quality products for mining, construction, wood processing, rock crushing, dredging and other industrial industries.
Instead of company layoffs that their employees were expecting, the company changed course and surprised everyone with job terminations. Using workplace drug testing as a strategy, they quickly updated their employee handbook with new policies and were able to fire employees to avoid costs like health insurance and unemployment benefits.
Cancer victim Holly Hicks states, “My husband was a dedicated employee of ESCO for 39 with a spotless record. He failed his drug test because of a trace of THC. He had escaped our world of cancer for a few hours and inhaled three puffs of marijuana five days before being tested. ESCO took away our income and our health insurance that I need to continue my cancer treatments. They denied his unemployment benefits that he paid into for 39 years. How can ESCO Corporation president Calvin Collins justify what they did to us and so many other families? We’re asking the public to support us by signing our petition. We are asking ESCO to grant unemployment benefits so we can pay for my cancer treatments. So far, the company has ignored our attempts to communicate with us.” [Read more here]
