Pete Renne, Revisited

Constantia, NY – Preparing for losing your job is a bit like dealing with the death of a loved one. It's emotionally and physically exhausting. Pete Renne understands this all too well. He produces compressor crank cases at Carrier Corporation, where he's worked for 25 years. He's also one of 1,200 employees who will lose their jobs after Carrier closes its DeWitt manufacturing facilities next month.

WRVO's Skye Rohde is following Renne during this transition. When she last checked in with him, Renne fluctuated from sadness to anger and back again. Now he says he's too tired to feel much at all.
