Nice but pitiful post in content. CSX is a profitable Corporation that
makes money to pay all that work there. It is not your mother or father
just a job.

<p>I am one of the 1000 being purged in the initial stages of what
become the Hunter Harrison era.  It has been a great privilege to work
for CSX.  I work in the Technology area and can truly say that this is
the best place I have ever worked.  I want to personally thank Mr.
and the board for looking out for his employees during these very
difficult times.  It speaks volumes for the character of this

is healthy enough to last 4 years before giving him
my fellow CSX employees, God bless you and may you find peace during
these difficult times.  Contrary to what the market analysts say, CSX
is a well run company greatly impacted by the utter destruction of the
coal industry thanks to the growing administrative state.  The loss of
revenue there is the greatest reason for the operating ratio
