Anyone really wonder why there is a spreading Occupy Movement willing to brave a modern-day Schutzstaffel?
Had a story on the HWMA – ACRC fiasco, but it got lost among my more important comments and observation. With this latest news emanating from Humboldt Herald this seems like a good time to post something.
Can any member of the Eureka City Council, with a straight face, explain how their decision to contract with a Willit’s garbage company was a greater benefit to the local economy and need for good jobs? The fact is, they can’t. If they try to justify these consequence, as reported in the Wednesday, November 2, 2011, Times-Standard newspaper: ACRC (Arcata Community Recycling Center) to close its doors in January; about 35 employees will lose their jobs – they’re talking out of both sides of their face.
I didn’t even bother to consider the Humboldt Waste Management Authority when reviewing their history in this matter. While doing some further research on this matter I came across this from: LAST GASP: Arcata Community Recycling Center Sues Humboldt Waste Management Authority – which also offers some history and strong-arm tactics used. You can take Hank Sim’s inferences for what their worth.
