My guess is that the workers

My guess is that the workers that are being 'laid off' are the same workers that are hired in late August to perform heavy maintenance during a scheduled shutdown that happens every year. They get paid big money for 3-4 months - $25+ per hour plus overtime, 13 days working 12 hour shifts with one day off, plus tax free per diem up to $123.00 per day. Then when they're laid off, they collect unemployment checks until they're called up for the next outage in another state in the spring. Much ado about nothing. These workers aren't hurting.
