Well expect them to ask for concessions and then they will close your plant just like they did Carlisle.I laugh at how someone who is supposed to be such a brain at business could be so stupid.Carlisle could out produce any carpet producer in the world with solution dyed yet he was stupid enuogh to close us.They forfeited Carlisle's Q1 rating to save plants that are producing scrap.Wait till we are closed and see what happens then.You will have to assume responsibility for your own junk.We won't be here to carry your asses.GOOD LUCK FOOLS,YOU'LL NEED IT.Thanks Wilbur for giving us an opportunity of a lifetime.I am going to nursing school.

If you don't know Wilson consider yourself very lucky. If you've never worked for IAC consider yourself blessed.

Ernie Wilson and his cronies screwed hundreds of people out of jobs. He's the ssawipe who should be out of work. He'll pay one way or the other that's for certain. The entire management of IAC is composed of heartless sabtards who only care about themselves. Time to even things up.

I've had a lot of bosses through the years and I always could say at least one good thing about any of them, not Ernie Wilson. Al Capone would have loved to have this guy on his payroll. Wilson is a crook, henchman, thief, liar and murderer. Yes murderer, a destroyer of scores of jobs to protect his. A good friend of mine killed himself after Wilson fired him the day before Christmas. What a total buttwipe. Only a matter of time before he gets what he deserves, can't wait to see it happen.

Ernie Wilson continues to be the most ruthless, uncaring ssa around. Steals ideas from other companies, passes them off as his own. Eliminates employees who are much more talented than himself because he views them as a threat. Wilson is a little dictator who needs to be thrown off his throne. Everyone who's suffered at IAC, believe me, Ernie Wilson is behind it somehow.
