of course if the plant closes you will lose your job - there is no "probably" about it. They are trying to get business in so it can be transferred to other facilities in the future. customers don't care where its made. also new busienss helps attract industries that might want to buy it. anyway, big trouble for sure.
out

Wonder if they will tell us the results of the FBI. Heard it takes a long time for FBI to go through all the records. Stupid company.

they're about done here in Bardstown anyhow. Last I heard back in December they would shut down 2nd quarter 2012 and vacate by the end of the year.
Not sure if that's still the case as the new warehouse is going elsewhere.
