Nacco is going to lay off 125 employees roughly at this time and getting a extra week of Christmas shutdown to be filed by unemployment or vacation time and a week to be determined in April Or March for spring break. All extra spending by the company has come to a halt and the cost of living raise is going to be put off an extra 6 months to see where the economy is and how we are doing. Things are not looking good but there not any where else either.

Whatever gave you that idea, get for real, he has no idea about what is going on, he has never owned a business, let alone does he have any experience to run this country. Oh by the way if you are ready for socialist country, be prepared, CHANGE IS ON THE WAY!!!!

Your crazy as hell. Lay offs will happen whether Obama is here or not. More than likely there will be more layoffs because of him wanting to tax higher income companys and people withdrawing there stocks and cancelling retirement plans because of his ideas. The rich are scared of him and its hurting the poor and medium class people more then its helping em
yes it is

The layoff is very true!! My husband works there and he says it does not look good. After this 125 is laid off, there could still be more in the future.

Look I voted for Obama, but he is not the President until 1-20-09 Please don't think that he can fix this in just a minute, it will take time. He said that things may get worse before, they get better. Bush has killed our country and we will slowly get it back.

If Obama's policies work, it will be 2 or 3 years before you see real results. In the middle of that there is a lot of "Commander in Chief" duty for him to handle. We'll see how quickly anything happens.....not nearly as fast as you folks think.

There has been absolutely no mention of any layoffs after the initial 125. The 125 is about a %15 reduction in the Berea-NACCO workforce. Another 200 would be a %30 reduction on what remains. Stop spreading rumors that have absolutely no basis in reality. Times are tough enough without people flying off the handle.

Yes , this is true, my father in law works there and told us about the meeting on Friday as well. He said the 125 and nothing else about any more after the first , he also told us of the extended time off .. This is a shame , there is so many people , even couples that work there that may get the ax.. Do you know if they are going by clock number or by just whom ever they want?
Huh
