Abstract

David Passmore’s “big-picture” view of the ramifications of Freightcar America potentially shuttering its Franklin Borough plant is sobering, to say the least.Passmore, professor of education in the Workforce Education and Development program at Penn State, said Wednesday the plant’s closing would cost the region more than the 450 union jobs directly lost.

Keywords: freightcar manufacturing
