Berry Plastics buys Rexam and has meetings with its new employees and tells them the Berry family and how it is god first and then your family and then your "Berry family". Then we hear all about how they keep plants open and keep people working. Thats what Berry does, keeps people working. Now a few weeks later we have a meeting and this is what Berry "does" SHUT down our plant. 120 people jobless and six million dollar hit to the economy. The week Berry bought Rexam they announced that berry would add 120 jobs and would boost the economy by 6 million dollars. Why do these numbers match? Why lie to everybody? I dont lie to my family but Berry Plastics does over and over they have lied non stop. Berry plastics knows nothing about God or family because you dont treat people this way. What plant is next to be shut down? And remember when Berry starts talking about adding jobs, your plant may be the one they are shutting down. So much for the Berry family.

Seems like all the family owned businesses in town are using the same ways to control the noise makers in their companys so why are people in this town so easily manipulated does the religious crap make them believe anything their employers say and do if so that just makes us all slaves to these pricks

It's not about religion. It's a warning to all Rexam employees and anyone else doing business with Berry Plastics they can't tell the truth. You do not treat people the way they have if you believe in family values and what is right. Berry did not have to lie to us but they choose to for what ever reason. To all Berry plastic workers, the next time Bery tells everyone about the good they are doing know that some where they are telling lies and hurting people and your plant may be next.

How is this for family? Berry plastics told the first people affected by the shut down that their last day would be December 23 (that way they won't have to pay holiday pay). Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from your Berry family. I hope no one else treats their family this way. The United States is a very sorry place to live if they do.

You are blaming the wrong Berry. You should be blaming the socialist, class warfarist, Barry (Obama).

I just want people to know Berry Plastics is not a good company and it's not being ran by good people. If they would have been truthful from the start I wouldn't have posted any thing. They got a bunch of people's hopes up, knowing the whole time it wasn't true, and then yanked the rug out from under us.

I will have to say this is wrong! I feel for all of you laid off workers! I was laid off in 2005 from a large corp and they gave my job to the Mexicans! I switched corps and got laid off again in 2008 right before Christmas now I once again am facing the threat of losing my job again but this time to Saudi Arabs! I mean we already support these people and give them whatever they want free educations we pay them to open businesses and give them a no tax break for so many years, these foreigners live better than most of us! I see them driving their Mercedes and BMW's around and living is big fancy houses. WTH the united states needs to stop giving all out SH!T away!!!! If I were you all stop buying stuff made by other countries but AMERICAN MADE that is what you are! Who cares if it is 12$ more we are the ones who keep these companies thriving! Wake up America we are only killing ourselves
