Unilever jerks

The city is close to striking a deal to buy the sprawling factory at the northeast corner of Highland Avenue and State Street (Illinois 31) for just more than $4 million, according to several people with knowledge of the arrangement. (source: Elgin Courier 4/21/06)
With $40 billion a year in revenue, Unilever is one of the world's largest companies. $4M is a drop in the bucket for them, and they're forcing us to buy their eyesore. Never mind that nobody else would want to buy it, and never mind that they claim to be great philanthropists.

They build an eyesore in our downtown, put people out of work, force us to buy their eyesore, wipe their hands clean and walk away.

Let's make sure Unilever never does business in Elgin again. I have never seen such an example of corporate greed and insensitivity.

Let them know how you feel about this.
