Jesse Jackson Sneak Attack on Toyota Kentucky
18 Jan 2019
Modified: 06:38:15 PM
Operation Push of Chicago with Jesse Jackson , the key leader is involved in a maligned 10 year agreement with Toyotas only U.S. plant to receive $780 million a year over a 10 year agreement.
This $ 7.8 billion agreement is a so called way to empower minority parts suppliers, minority advertising companies as well as others. But hold those parts, their are few minority parts or minority advertising companies involved in Kentucky or with Toyota.Also they do not use $7.8 billion dollars. This is 6x what the Lexington plant is worth. It could be knocked into bankrupcy, lay off it's job force if this happens again by some organized movement.

The people with jobs are not getting any crisp U.S. bills. Nor are the citizens and residents who live in metropolitan Lexington.

The 2nd poorest part of the U.S. is in eastern KY about 30 miles east. People from counties with 30% unemployment and 30% poverty have picked up east KY roots and moved into Lexington to work at the snazzy plant related to the closed Toyota plant in Fremont California.Just in case you all wanted a solidarity struggle:the Fremont California plant has been closed, while the Lexington Kentucky plant is entirely non-union where legal hemp once grew for a 50 state U.S. market. Today fine race horses get attention. Take your complaints to Toyota,Operation Push also try the CA Afl Cio, KY Afl-Cio as well as Mayor of Lexington, University of KY Departments
