Several Oklahomans whoâ€™ve been put in the unemployment line lately took to the picket line Monday.
Blaming President Bush for their plight, they formed up in front of Tulsaâ€™s old Zebco plant at 6120 East Apache. A public relations man, whoâ€™s still got a job, was out front to call for more government money for the unemployed. Gary Percefull, "Times are tough all over and there's no indication that it will get any better and I think these people here today want to express their concern that we do have a domestic problem right now."
The workers represent layoffs at Zebco, Grady Pryor Foundry, American Airlines, and Williams Companies.
