Patricia Warble's letter laying blame for the negative transformation of Dundalk to greed, neglect and opportunism truly misses the point of what ails Dundalk and its surrounding communities ( "Dundalk needs more than a new marketing plan," June 12). What really ails the area is the loss of good, well-paying middle-class jobs. As someone who grew up in the area, I can tick off a long list of companies that provided those well-paying jobs over the years that are no longer there: Bethlehem Steel, General Motors, Western Electric, Eastern Stainless, Rheem Manufacturing, American Standard, Signode, Thompson Wire and Owens Boat Builders.
