Jennifer Brown is scared, and with good reason.

“I have my family to support,” the mother of two said. “A house, a car payment.”

“The morale in (the Ilion factory) is really low and people are waiting for more,” said her father, Frank “Rusty” Brown, chairman of the UMWA Local 717 Compac Committee.
