Oh those jobs are gone all right.  The factories might come back, but the jobs won't ever.
Other than "Apple lied to us then held a gun to our heads and made us sign the contract", there is really no "other side of the argument".
Oh, I'm pretty sure that the GTAT brass had a very good idea how easy or difficult it was to fulfill the contract terms.  That is a natural problem with the corporations:  how to make sure that the executives have the stockholders' interest in mind and not their own.  The CEO basically threw his stockholders in the ditch when he saw the bonanza he will get from 'scheduled' stock sales.  You could even be charitable and say he didn't set out to willfully defraud the...
