Sounds like the sugar plant. Another home town employer. Where do the families get a paycheck now?

This is going to hit them hard. The plant employed 800 people. What an economic impact it will have on the whole town. Cargill was Boonesville's largest employer.

We have catastropic insurance for the investment banking firms (i.e. the Federal Reserve) but can't seem to find anything for the working poor. Something is just not quite right, here.
