More on Express Scripts

From Friday's Tri-Advocate:

Pharmaceutical distributing behemoth Express Scripts this week also jumped on the Scrooge bandwagon and announced it would close two Bensalem facilities and lay off almost 1,000 people, despite being wildly profitable in recent years. The reason? It wanted $8.8 million in labor concessions, and the union only offered a meager $8 million. For the uninformed, the state has, as recently as 2009, come to the table with significant financial help for Express Scripts for the express (no pun intended) purpose of keeping them in Bucks County. We are sure there are some unhappy elected officials in Bucks County today.
