This should be a red flag for the Utah oversight committee monitoring Energy
Solutions for obeying environmental laws or violation. The first sign of
internal company financial problems is cutting back on labor and number of
workers. It's a sign of profit margin dipping too low and every means
available is required to bring up the guaranteed returns on inventors funding,
including EPA and labor safety.This also could be why Energy
Solutions chose not to pursue one of their own to be on the oversight committee,
the committee won't be needed much longer when the lights are turned off at
the dump site when the last man leaves.
"...EnergySolutions is not facing economic hardship."Brings
up an interesting situation. What happens when Energy Solutions does eventually
dissolve as a company. Does the state of Utah take over all the waste

government do that?I keep thinking about all the bankrupt companies
that left tailings near Moab, and it took a federal bailout to clean it up given
that those companies in the "free market" weren't around to address
it. Sure, those companies "built that" mess, but they
didn't clean it up. Taxpayers had to.
You would think that before they start laying off employees they would stop
paying millions of dollars each year to have their company name name on a
basketball arena. That money could help save many valuable jobs.

better than it did the I-15 rebuild in Utah County,the leaking of medical
id's by the state's computer wizards, and the monied corruption of our

Utah County is on time and $230 million dollars under budget. Utah may not be
perfect but at least we aren't somewhere north of $617 billion (with a
"B") in debt.Before the liberals start complaining about
Utah's economy they should explain California's.
