Henderson County has no future other than as the place where retired Northerners move to when they get sick of the heat in Florida.

"The company would transfer the plantís die-cast production ballast components, sheet metal and part of its assembly operations out of the Hendersonville-area plant".

Why leave out the part about where the jobs are going?? MEXICO.

Probably not going to Mexico, my best guess is China, or there abouts. Toxins to put in products are cheaper in China.

Let's give management the benefit of the doubt.
At least they are giving the employees a chance
to negotiate a way to stay.

Unfortunately, that will mean a big reduction
in pay and benefits.
