Joining the ranks of the Jobless
Once again they started having manufacturing shut downs, and just did a wave of 60 production worker lay offs. We know this to be a red flag of troubled times, we've seen this pattern before. Today they announced that the company would shut down the Oregon facilities entirely, and move it all to Indiana.
Previously, they shut down the Indiana plants & moved it all to Oregon. In any case, they expect the shut down to happen in a matter of "weeks", not months, but for sure by the end of the year.
There goes the main breadwinner of this family's job, his & the son's health & dental insurance. This county is in deep trouble, as we are facing a slew of other mass layoffs-- the school district just shut down 6 schools, which is a huge volume of people to put into the jobless realms.
Don't know all our options yet, but damn.
