They gave us our raise 3 or 4 years ago and then took it back. Today they announced that starting Sunday Aug. 7th our pay would be cut 10%. What in your opinion is going on?

What do you expect .. Beaulieu does everything to mess over people! When someone gets hurt fire them.. If your not n illegal or a drug user they try to make it hard on you. The best thing would be a sell out... Maybe then the hardworking people of bridgeport plants would be treated like human beings instead of animals with a number!!!!

they will shut down no ones buying carpet anymore after Mohawk then SHAW they should've been ready for this and know that eventually it will be Beaulieu. I don't see how they will even have enough people to run the place because everyone is looking for another job starting today so actually they are not saving money by cutting us 10% they will be losing money because those jobs will sit there because there will be no one to run them and since there is no overtime the job will just sit there and no production will be put out.I also heard theres some businesses in Bridgeport that have a paper that says if you believe that you were not paid overtime pay for working over to sign your name to get part of the settlement but i dont know how true this is i have yet to see one.

The paper was talking about Beaulieau if you think they skrewed you over on your overtime like being paid straight time instead of overtime sorry shouldve noted that.

Maybe Bubba will have the city buy it and then Bridgeport can make carpet. The hero of the peopel can save every bodies jobs since he is the greatest Mayor ever. Maybe if they can't afford the building, he can just give city jobs to all the employees leaving there. Welcome to the Bridgeport Utopia!!!!

I agree with you guys. Carl spends mass amounts of money on his horses, and all the while claiming that Beaulieu is losing money. If his workers have to take a pay cut, he should have to quit spending money. It is not right that we live paycheck to paycheck and he is a billionaire. I say that we run his ass back to Belgium where he belongs. Time to take our country back from the non Americans!

Thankful we still have jobs?? Really now if we should be so thankful maybe you should go work there. No our jobs suck, the "big rigs" don't respect that we bust our asses everyday just to LOSE money because were taking a 10% cut!! Guess what that means that the people that work in Heatset and hyster drivers are making just a bit more than minimum wage!!! And all for the BS we have to do. And yet they want to come up to us bitchin because their crapy RE Heatseted yarn wont run?? wonder why! I wonder if they actually think we care? Nope because everyones looking for other jobs on their off days and still at Beaulieu just to make a little money before we quit!!:) Or before that POS place shuts down which ever comes first.

Well your free to quit any time they are not holding a gun on you and making you work there.I bet your one of them lazy ass people that dont do there job when when you are there.Losing 10%is better than losing 100%.You need to suck it up and stop being a cry baby and live with because you cant change it.

First off I'm thankful to still have a job! And I get so sick of hearing about the 10% pay cut! If you hate it that bad stay home and let some of the people around here that need to work come and provide for their families to the best of their abilities. As far as shutting the doors, I can almost promise you that the Fabrics (new) plant will not shut down. Thats the only plant Beaulieu has that makes the backing for carpets. If they shut it down and bought "outside" then the competiors (Shaw and MoHawk) would raise their prices sky high charging whatever they wanted to charge forcing the WHOLE Beaulieu company to shut down. As for the Fibers (old) plant, Beaulieu has a few plants that has the same processes as the Bridgeport plant so I can't comment on that. Thanks just wanted to put in my 2 cents. Take it however you like!
