Deitrich: "It's very significant."
Olsen: "We’re looking at giving you money. We’d certainly like to know what you save if you leave."
KC's John Deitrich: "It's going into investment for innovation."
KC didn't ask for state incentives, Deitrich says, but when they were offered, "it changed the game."
"We have no interest in a bidding war between the states."
KC's Deitrich: Didn't ask for incentive, had already announced plans to close Cold Spring. If bill doesn't pass, they're back to that position.
"We will finalize our decision after we know the decision from the state."
KC's Deitrich: "We currently have no plans to close the Marinette facility." Adds that the agreement w/ WI would require KC to retain 93% of employees statewide.
Karmen Jones, a machine operator and union recording secretary at Cold Spring, tearfully asked for a "no" vote. Said KC doesn't care about employees, only bottom line.
