Buckeye Backroad Tour cont: We headed further west where we interviewed Clyde, Ohio’s Dave Woodruff. He is the founder of the organization Blue Collar Community. He is also a former employee of the Whirlpool Corporation, which has it’s main plant in Clyde. Woodruff said when he worked at Whirlpool the company went to profit sharing, which meant the employees would get shareholder statements — showing, among other things, how much money the guys (and gals) in corporate were making in comparison to the workers on the floor. “They’d get millions, and we’d get a lunch box,” Woodruff said of the salaries, perks. The CEO, especially, was “knocking down big bucks,” he said. So Woodruff sent him a letter protesting. One of the things Woodruff told me was that the company was cutting large amounts of money from different departments, but it didn’t seem the people in corporate were necessarily taking any significant cuts. Woodruff, through his organization, is now trying to organize blue collar workers in the area to come together and stand up for their rights. “There’s enough pieces of the pie to go around,” he added.
