    I've crossed picket lines at steel mills many times, ATI to be exact. It's not my fault the company they work for doesn't treat them right, I just want to get/deliver my load and get out. I feel for the workers, but if I stopped working every time I felt bad for someone I'd be bankrupt

    And in a few weeks, on the bottom of Rice Krispies box it will say "Made in China".
