Winners here are:
the Private Equity guys sitting in the Greenwich Yacht Club, the families who sold out and moved to Florida, the bankers who charged fees on the money borrowed to make the deal work.

Losers:
Families working 2 jobs to keep their kids out of trouble.

Capitalism is quite healthy, unfortunately it eats children alive.

You don't want to be in the wrong section when it comes to capitialism. Do your research before you start out, educate and protect yourself.

Code Hennessy & Simmons didn't care about the lives that were affected ONLY about the BUCK !!!!! This is todays companys and I am ashamed to say I trusted these people they routined the lives of 1,000 employees and didn't bother to care "that bothers me about big companys today".When will they wake up and realize if it wasn't for the smaller people ( the ones who care) they wouldn't be where they are today sitting fat in their wallets while I search for a new job.

Sincerely ,
Former SPI Employee
