Crying over spoiled milk?

A labor dispute at the Elmhurst Honeywell Dairy in Jamaica is threatening to spoil New York's milk supply.

More than 170 workers were abruptly locked out of the milk processing plant by management on Sunday morning, labor leaders said.

The company processes 1.5 million gallons of milk a week, nearly 90% of the city's supply.

I buy powdered non-fat instant milk...have done so for years...it's healthier for you...it lightens your waistline but doesn't lighten your wallet.

I work there. We came to an agreement. The other companies think my boss is a pain in the a**. He tries this every so often.
