It is sad to see the industry leaving or shutting down
Can only hope it is not money related.
Workers not satisfied with wages.
Or moving south or to another country.

The exact same thing happened to a little company named scotchmaid several years ago when SARA LEE bought that co. We were moved to Fogelsville and it took just over 1 year for SARA LEE to phase that out and move production overseas. It was only a matter of time.It's sad that a co that big can ruin so many lives and not think twice.
