Titan America accused of charging artificially high prices

The company that wants to build a cement plant in Castle Hayne is being sued in a class action lawsuit. Titan America is among nine companies accused of anti-competitive practices in Florida. A group of cement and concrete companies, and companies that buy their products filed the suit. They claim Titan and its co-defendants conspired to control competition in Florida in various ways, including charging artificially high prices. A Titan spokeswoman said this is "disturbing news," but would not comment further, because she said the company has not been served with the suit.

It seems like the people who don't want Titan to come here will stop at nothing to discredit them. Where were you all when the other cement plant was there. I need a job and this would be a great boost to our economy.

CFCC waits for you!

If you want a job you would be far wiser to go bust your tail getting a marketable skill via further education at CFCC. The idea that Titan is going to hire a bunch of high school grads at big-time pay is absurd. Their people tend to be unionized and very insular.
