Lancaster Eagle-Gazette

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Cleveland, said he thinks Anchor Hocking has a good future after facing financial difficulties earlier this year, but he said workers had to make a sacrifices to help get the company out of its problems.

“The people are not happy with the lower wages and losing their retirement,” Brown said. “This is not a good story. It’s good that the plant is open, but we will look into the future and see how we can help the workers.”

Brown visited with Anchor Hocking union leaders and management Thursday and toured the plant.

“I was impressed with the plant,” he said. “It’s old, but it’s got a lot of technology in it.”
