Ryan Statement on Delphi Bankruptcy Filing, Expected Closure or Sale of Oak Creek Plants
JANESVILLE - Wisconsin 's First District Congressman Paul Ryan made the following statement regarding today's bankruptcy filing by Delphi Corp. and its announcement of a restructuring plan that does not include keeping the Oak Creek plants open.
"This is devastating news for the Oak Creek community and our entire region, which has counted the Oak Creek plants among its great manufacturing strengths. The people who work at these plants are highly skilled and hard-working, and I fail to see how Delphi can help its recovery by closing or selling these facilities. Every day, Delphi's Oak Creek workers pour their knowledge and their hearts into making top-quality products that our auto industry relies on. They do a great job, and they deserve to keep their jobs. I will continue working with them to make sure they get the assistance they need during this difficult time, and I know the community will pull together to help one another," Ryan said.
