The Mountain Enterprise Online ( http://www.mountainenterprise.com/ ) of December 31 reports that First Solar, Inc. fired nearly half of its work force on Friday, Dec. 30.
After running paid advertisements in the Enterprise "lavishing praise on itself for providing jobs in the area, and quoting workers' comments about how important the jobs have been to their lives" -- and receiving permits from L.A. and Kern Counties and massive loan guarantees from the federal government "based largely on the industry's promises to bring increased jobs" -- First Solar gave nearly half its Antelope Valley work force pink slips.
The Enterprise article notes that the Antelope Valley Press quoted a First Solar foreman as saying the firings have been management's plan for several months.
Really, folks, did anyone seriously think First Solar WOULDN'T give the community the shaft? Stay tuned -- this is only the beginning of their game.
