Remember the irate Bensalem, Penn. Express Scripts workers and SEIU members who road-tripped across the country to the company's St. Louis headquarters? 

Well, it seems that they're out of luck: Express Scripts has announced plans to close one of the Bensalem facilities, laying off 350 workers. 

The facility will close in mid-December, and the 800,000 prescriptions the facility fills daily will be redistributed to another facility. 

Stephanie Hayes, vice president of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, said in a press release: 

This decision will throw hundreds of workers on the unemployment line, and pitch the Bensalem, PA community further into recession. Express Scripts made $550 million in profit in the first six months of this year. There is no legitimate reason to close this facility.
