McCall is not asking, he’s begging

September 12, 2012

An Oconee County councilman has an idea to save jobs, if the rumors prove true that the Seneca area is about to lose a major employer. But to make his plan happen, Wayne McCall says, he needs some dialogue with those who can make it happen. He is talking about Covidien employees about banding together and buying their workplace, something that has taken place elsewhere. With some belief that tomorrow is to be the day that Covidien makes known its plans, McCall says he is not asking, he is begging to be able to talk to someone in corporate or employees interested in his idea. The District Two councilman notes that Covidien, modern-day successor to Kendall, has been a steady employer for Oconee County and today still operates three work shifts. At its highway 28 Bountyland location, Covidien manufactures elastic hospital products, medical bandages, and surgical supplies.
